Yesturday, September 24th, 2004 at 10:30 a.m. I began to remove the 3B 20v 
engine from my perfectly running 1991 200 TQ 20V.   At 4:30 p.m.  I had only 
the fuel lines to disconnect, the engine mounts,and 2 more tranny to block 
bolts to remove and I called it quits.  I had removed the front fenders a 
few days ago to sell and it made access alot easier when it came to removing 
the radiator,  and just plain old access to a ton of tight places.

So, I have been taking pictures of the removal and hope to post them in a 
few days.

The bentley shows that the second LIFT point on the engine is the Throttle 
cable mounting point on the Intake manifold.   Is that correct?????   It 
seems too small to hold the weight.   TIA
