That's a big part of the job for sure. You can always hang the engine and put the X member in separately if that would be easier. My 65 had the same style alternator on it. High Output? lol

I bet it is a little different with a No-door ! Move faster !! Smile . With 2 ppl tho you shouldn't have get right under anything to get the bolts started. Getting the front of the van a little higher and getting those tires out of the way would help you alot.
