2606 engine tranny split, parting of the red sea

Hello guys. Getting ready to pull the 2606 c221 under a tree to split it apart to check the clutch, etc. Not sure where to tie onto. Figure a come along, chain and boomer over the limb as a backup, and two heavy duty Jack stands for the back end but can only think of a chain held by the 2 rear head bolts for the engine with a couple chains around the bolster and over the limb as a backup.

Any help and advice is appreciated. Still haven't got the pistons freed up yet but probably shouldn't do any heavy hammering and prying till I get it back together. Thanks.

Help, help. Thought I allowed for iron to go flying anywhere but front end down. Was even ready to jump if the limb broke. I sure wouldn't want to make a living splitting tractors hanging from a tree. Took a while to split until I realized there was 2 long bolts at the top of the bell housing. Then once it was pryed apart it flopped over front down instead of the back of the block down. Made it easy to pull the clutch. Now I need to find the balance point. Any ideas?

I may turn it sideways, pull the pan, and work on the sleeves and pistons where it is easy to reach. I will make another post with pics of the clutch.

What started out as bolt on the manifold and carb plus slap on a little paint, has turned in to a need to call the banker. Thanks

Thanks Roger. Took the head to the shop and pulled it under a limb so this shade tree mechanic can go to work in this 100 degree temperatures. Pulling it in gear didn't loosen it up and when I tried to give it a couple jerk pulls I managed to break the old rusty chain. Sure glad it was short and I was pulling on an angle cause that broken chain snapped back along side of my pickup without hitting anything. Knock on wood. Unless I forgot where reverse is on that thing, it just rolled freely when the shifter was all the way left and up. It was locked solid in all other positions.

I hear what you are saying but do you unbolt the governor and water pump housing to break the engine loose? Other than those, I see 6 big bolts on the front, 3 per side, but it seems like the front casting holding the radiator would flop over forward on the wheels flipping the bolster up.

Guess I will take it one step at a time starting with the clutch. Then maybe pull the pan and see if I can drive or Jack the cylinders out from underneath.
Thanks for your help.

Six big bolts is correct on front but I also forgot the wide front yoke in the middle needs to come loose. Water pump and governor can stay with the engine for now.

Split only or completely take the engine out? I would take the engine out if you are that deep into it, and that one looks easy. Get it situated so you can unbolt the front(support with block the read end) and move the front out of the way, do not loose any small parts when taking it apart. Then unbolt the engine and take that out. I would loosen the bolts but don't remove first,all of them before doing the blocking. Once the engine is out you can roll it over(upside down) and take hopefully the crank out and push the pistons and sleeves out. I had to do that with a 560 D. I have a three car garage with a good floor in it. I used a engine hoist and several sets of blocks. Be careful the engine is very heavy in those. I have a 2000 lb engine stand but the engine hangs out in front a long ways and it is not balanced right. I was not concerned about keeping a lot of that engine so I set it on the floor on 6x6 next to the stuck ones and drove them down with a hard board on the boss of the wrist pin. Sleeves came with the piston. If you go gently(take your time) it may come apart with out damage(don't pound on the connecting rods as they can get damaged). The Diesel I took apart the sleeves were terrible and the engine was a salvage only block, tons of rust, fuel pump was locked up.
