WuNgUn's one-man tranny install!

Yeah, all by myself...finally got the sucka up and bolted in...

Here is my custom made shifter busging installed...

So basically, what I did was plop the Getrag into a milk crate, with the car up in the air, and slid it into position...

I carefully jacked the car down to get a better alignment...

And wiggled and tilted and lifted it up into place...started a few bolts top and bottom to draw it in...

And that's it!!
Wasn't too difficult, but I worry that maybe with my wiggling and tilting, that I might of caused damage to the main seal, or the throw out bearing...? Scary thought..
Time will tell!
That's as far as I got when I broke the bulb in my trouble light!! Dammit!

Oh, and the custome shifter bushing installed and cable mounted...

I'm a little concerned that the one I've sold will be seriously difficult to install with the tranny still in the car!!!

...go threw your posts and see who can't spell retard...
