More done today.
One engine in the back of the trusty 405, its been in here before, about 5 years ago!
Set the height roughly on the crane, reverse the car up to it, pop a bolt through the D-shackle
Take up the tension with a ratchet, drive the car forwards!
Shift it into the garage out of the way, pop the gearbox on.
Lower the car on the jack, swing+shove the engine into the bay, jack the car up enough to get the LH mounting bracket on the chassis leg.
Take the car back up with the jack, fit the LH rubber mounting, wind the crane down till the RH arm is sitting over the mounting and taking the weight of the engine, shift the crane out of the way and pop the car back on the axle stands.
Dropped the slam panel on out of the way.
Got the RH driveshaft in and secure, main long gear rod from the base of the stick in (its different on the RS engine to clear the cat+downpipe) fitted the gear rods, starter motor in place, PAS pump and alternator bolted on, for some reason the AUX belt sems too short, but I haven't tried the one from the black car, might be that the RFS crank pulley is larger, forgot to check this.
