Default Engine removal

So I looked in the fsm on engine removal and its saying that engine has to be stripped top the block top come out and put a new engine in. Is this completely true or not? For now I found a 1.3 for like 400$ and I'm going to swap it in so I have it Running for the time being. What I'd like top know is what I can keep on to get the engine out and get a new one back in

What vehicle and year?

Also an explanation of "has to be stripped top the block top come out" would help.

Whether it is an auto or manual, 2WD or 4WD may be key as well.

Hey, Sorry about that my phone was being a piece of junk. It's an 86 Suzuki samurai. What I was wanting to know was what is the minimum I need to take off of the engine to get it out of the engine bay. I read the FSM and it said to take the valve covers, valves, heads off alternator, water pump, timing belts, etc.. It is also a manual 4wd.

I swapped the engine from my 87 into my 88. Pull the engine and transmission together as one unit.

I didn't take much of anything off of the engine. I did not remove the carb/intake, alternator or starter, or any of the stuff you mentioned the FSM said.

Disconnect radiator hoses, pull radiator, cooling fan, unplug wires, unbolt motor mounts and trans mount. Pull the shifter out of the trans, disconnect clutch cable, remove the frame support bar underneath, pull the trans to tcase propeller shaft. Disconnect the exhaust, and the exhaust pipe to manifold bolts can be a real bear. Use lots of penetrating lube and be prepared for trouble with them. Maybe a few other little things I can't think of...

You will need a leveling bar on your lift so that you can tilt the engine/trans probably about 45 degrees when your lifting it out. That is the only way the oil pan will clear the core support, and the top of the trans clear the trans tunnel and firewall.

Hope this helps.
