I need to remove the Engine from a Silver Cloud 3. I'd liked to leave the gearbox in the car and to just remove the engine.
Could you let me know:
- If this is a wise decision?
- How to split the Engine an Gearbox in the car (at the Torque converter)?

Yes you can seperate the gearbox from the engine and just remove the engine.
This is how mine was done a year or so ago when we rebuilt the engine.
A full descripition of how to do this is in the work shop manual.
Look in both the engine and gearbox section as the main engine section describes removing the engine/gearbox as a unit.
The gearbox section will tell you how to uncouple the gearbox from the engine so you can just remove the engine and leave the gerbox in situe.
Why are you pulling the engine out?

You have to drain all the 6 litres of fluid from the torus, ie the big part that contains the fluid coupling. Then undo a lot of small bolts to split the torus from the thin flexible "flywheel".
There are two locating dowels one of which is bigger than the other, fitted in order to maintain the engine/gearbox balance.

The torus has it's own drain plug. after removal of the bottom bell hosing cover that should have ventilation gaugze in it, use flywheel teeth to move engine around to expose torus drain plug-easy!
