engine removal 94 itasca Suncruiser 454

Does the front nose piece come off on my 94 itasca Suncruiser to remove the engine? If not what is the recommended way to remove it? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

On my '94 Vectra, the engine came out the drivers side door.

My itasca doesn't have a driver side door. Or passenger door.

If the front crossmember of the frame can be removed then you may have to drop it out the bottom with the front of the motorhome raised up for clearance.

There was a long post on removing a 454 from the inside. I think he removed the couch and seats, put down 3/4' plywood, and used a cherry picker inside to lift the engine. He then took it out the side door. I'll try & locate my copy. Eddie Elk.

I had a 94 suncruiser and was told back then, take it out through the door.

I would really appreciate that. If you could shoot a copy of that to me. Or any other information on my RV.
