Hello everyone. New to this forum but not to yt. Am working on a 990 1976 449 David Brown tractor for a friend or will be. Going to order a manual I promise but curiosity is killing me as I haven't seen the tractor. I have been looking at pics and it appears there is a subframe under the engine. As I am pulling the engine is it possible to pull the engine and leave the subframe? If it was split briefly to pull the clutch and then reassembled for stability? Is the oil pan covered by this subframe under the engine? Any tricks to pulling the engine aside from engaging pto so coupler doesn't drop.
Any help is appreciated and I promise to use a manual. I am just thinking it through ahead of time. Seems I do a job in my head about 20 times before I start. Thanks in advance for any help. New to David browns.
