I pulled it off but that engine fits in so tight, there is very little wiggle room. Getting a drill motor, rivenut tool or even a wrench back in there to add or move items can be tough.

I have a rear mounted battery and I installed the battery cut off switch centered and just above the trans tunnel. This would be tough if not impossible to do after the motor is in. After I installed my motor I found out my local speed shot sold me the wrong braided fuel lines. They replaced them but getting to those fittings midway up the PS footbox was a no go. I had to drill out the riveted clips securing my hard fuel lines so I could drop them enough to get to a wrench on them.

I'd get as much of the work done in advance as possible.
