    My experience with removing engines goes like this:
    1. remove all fluids, battery, & anything in the way.
    2. unbolt engine from mounts & tranny.
    3. remove engine.
    4. put new engine in.
    5. bolt it up to the mounts & tranny.
    6. put in all new fluids.
    7. drive away happy.
    Of course that's the short version. If I missed anything, feel free to chime in.

    1. Turn engine off.

    If you forget this step, it makes the rest very hard to accomplish.

    I wouldn't call it overrating ourselves. I'm the type of person who looks at what has to be done & goes at it step by step how I think it has to be done & learns along the way. I'm a huge advocate of doing it yourself, especially working on my vehicles. With a question like, "how do I pull my engine out?" there are a few right answers. You got a general guidline on how to do it. I'm not sure if there was an exact write up on it anywhere. Sorry for the cynical answers. Good to hear you got it out though. Good luck with the rest of your mechanical endeavors.
