I would say it's easier to pull just the motor because of the transfer case attached to the transmission .
Way too many unanswered questions here.
Has the mechanic ever pulled and replaced a CUCV engine?
Has he ever replaced the IP or worked on a CUCV engine?
Is he going to pull the engine and transmission in one shot? In my opinion it's easier to do that than try to realign the transmission with the engine hanging on a hoist.
You have to disconnect all linkage and electrics and then unbolt the engine/transmission. The radiator and metal grill will have to be pulled to make it easier to get the engine out without damaging the radiator.
It will depend on the mechanics skill and if he is used to swapping engines.
So instead of 6 transmission bolts and 4 torque convertor bolts that have to come off anyway , you pulled the front clip .Why? The transfer comes right along with the transmission. When I put the engine in my 1009, I did it as a complete unit Engine/Trans/Transfer and used my wrecker. I had it out and back in in a weekend.
I also pulled the entire front clip as a unit and yanked the wiring harness from the firewall.
