[ROVERNET - UK] Engine removal

I also pulled the engine and auto trans without difficulty - first time 
ever.  Ziploc bags are a brilliant idea. Put the labels inside the bags, so 
they won't be lost. Even so, some lubricated parts will cause the labels to 
come unglued, but at least they will be in the bag!
