If you pull the radiator and remove the crossmember, you should be able to take the engine and trans out as an assembly. At least, that worked on my '68 Skylark. There might be less room in your car, but the parts are the same size. What do you do in the Navy? Machinist's Mate? That's what I did. The old Boiler Tech and Machinist's Mate ratings seem to have gotten rolled into one rating (Machinist's Mate), last I heard. But then, I got out in '76.
