Clutch and trans in...pointers.

First off , make sure you have another vehicle to drive.
That little aluminum foot that catches the k frame , loose it.. sawzall city on that sob.
Have a persuader...extension pipe to fit over end of rachets for torque.
I rigged a poly rope to the hole atop the trans ..stung it out over a pipe atop some wooden blocks that set atop the ends of the engine bay..The rope then went up and over a ten foot high beam in the garage about 5 feet in front the car..I hung about 75 lbs of wieghts from my wieght sset on it to counter balance the trans...worked well..don't try it at home..I can not be held responsible.

One more thing, I did this job by myself..when that trans slid into place ..well lets just say its an awsome feeling.
