Well I've been putting in some overtime at work and I've been out of town a lot until this past weekend, but I finally got the replacement transmission installed this past Saturday. This weekend I have to get the rest of it put back together (suspension, axles, bleed the clutch, etc.) then it'll be time for the moment of truth. Getting it back in was pretty horrible. I'll just say it involved myself and 3 other people, ratchet straps, and a lot of swearing.

On a side not, I'm pretty sure the clutch I removed was the original but it still looked good. It had about as much meat on it as the new replacement did, but I changed it and the slave cylinder anyways. I don't intend on taking this thing back apart anytime soon.
