To this I would add, especially if I pull the engine / tranny from the car
and do it on the work table.

In my brittle old age, this is so much easier than doing it in the car.

2 axels, a few wires and hoses (time to change the coolant anyway)
Only diesels, of course.
Also, I NEVER remove the manifolds from the head for a simple head gasket
change, even on the TD's.
