it says you have to, to pull it but you don't need to to put back in, I didn't have to when I did the swap and easy to take exhaust manifolds off

I don't understand what you are saying.

Some sentence structure would help to.

Steering rack can stay.
I've even left the diff in many times.
Just unbolt the shaft and 2 mounts.
It will slide forward and hang from the axles giving enough oil pan clearance to move the engine forward and up.

Have you taken the diff out yet?
There's a trick before you start unbolting stuff.

to pull the motor out the FSM says you have to drop the front diff to remove the motor. but to put it back in you don't have to unbolt(remove) front diff. I didn't unbolt (remove front diff when I installed a 2.7 in my 2002. its is easier to just unbolt exhaust manifolds because there isn't enough room with steering shaft to put back in its very tight with the exhaust manifolds on

The front diff is still untouched.

You're saying disconnect the prop shaft and both diff assembly mounts, then slide the entire diff assembly forward and let it hang from the axles. Correct?
Leave the axles attached then?

Column to rack steering shaft stays in place too?

What's this trick Larry?

It sounds crazy to attempt to remove the exhaust manifolds Beagle.
Engine clearance appears OK and I've read nothing suggesting their removal.

removing exhaust manifolds makes it easier to get motor back in, it was for me but I had no help

I've never taken off manifolds or steer shaft.
You doing this on a hoist or the ground?
That would determine if I'd suggest pulling the diff right out..

And for the radiator, don't fight with the lower rad hose.
Just unbolt the pipe at T-stat housing.
2 bolt that hold fuel line and one at the bottom
It all come up together.

In that case I wouldn't completely remove the diff.
Just do like you described above. Obviously the little rubber feed hose needs to come off too

If you do want to remove completely,
Step 1. Pop the passenger cv out of the diff and tie a rag or something in the gap so it can't pop back in. If you move anything else or if it pops back in, you never get apart without breaking the circlip.
Don't know they do this, it's the only car I've seen this happen to,
But I just learned that if you do it first it comes out so easy.

Once that's done, then I would unbolt the drivers side axle, prop shaft and mounts.
Then grab the diff and slide off the passenger shaft.
Note, both axle stay in the car.
