'92 ZX7 Engine Drop

Hello all. I have a '92 ZX7 and I need to get into the transmission. So my question is, what all is involved in dropping the engine/tranny? It looks almost like it could just fall out the bottom if I took bolts out and unplugged things, is this correct?

Any info wouldbe great. THanks.

you need a special tool for the engine mounts($50-100) or borrow one from your dealer if you can, other than that its pretty easy to drop the motor. then get a repair manual if you feel like you can rip apart the tranny and diagnose the problem (92 has a weak 2nd gear and I think you have to replace 2nd and 5th and then the shift forks if their bent or worn. I'd just call around to the salvage yards and get a good zx7 or zx7r motor (1991 to 1995) cause its alot of work or $1000 to have a shop rebuild the tranny and you can get a 1995 motor that runs well for $1000-1400. good luck
