here is what i would do. pull the motors first out the top. then pull the transmissions out the bottom. then install the trans' in through the bottom. place a jack under the trans and raise it up past the front crossmember, so the motor will line up with it.
now, is the 85 an ea82? it will be different, but it will work. the trans id not going to fit exactly under the tunnel, not without beating the tunnel out, cutting away at it, or stacking washers between the crossmember and the body
the ea82 motor will fit, but take out the distributor so you can get it in past the brake master cylinder. if you leave the 4spd trans in, and use the ea82, use the ea82 flywheel and pressure plate and the 4spd's clutch disc.
give a few more specifics about both vehicles, and what motor, trans they have, and we can be more specific about procedure and which parts to mix.
it can be done either way, but we need to know more specifics to tell you how to do it!

Just rolls right out!
I did it and kept the struts, motor, tranny, crossmember all as a unit. I even left the tires on! wished I'd have left it in neutral:banghead:
I wouldn't try this w/o a cherry picker though:eek:
This may or may not work for your application, but it sure worked well for mine.:-)
82 Hatch, transforming...:temper:
01 Forester, runs away when I get out the cherry picker....
