While getting the tranny off is easy, getting it back in is proving too much for me. -_- My old fox, the tranny went up and down easy. Don't know why this one is giving so much grief.

is the bell housing on the engine or the trans? are you using a jack to lift it or just muscling it up there>?

Bellhousing is on the trans. Guessing it'd be easier to take that off?

So i worked on the car some more today. I finally managed to get the transmission off with the help of a friend and two jacks. I don't know how i'm gonna get it back on there. The bellhousing is still on the car but i'm done for today. No big problems so far. It was easier than i expected. Transmission's heavy as **** though.

It's pretty light to me and I'm a small guy. I was able to carry the thing by myself.

dj, i would assume it would be easier with the bellhousing off although i have never took one off or put it on before so i am not the best judge.

It's not too heavy after it's out from under the car but i have the car raised literally 12" off the ground because i don't trust my crappy acdelco ratchet stands. I have barely any room to work with. I need to get some pin jack stands.

But you should definitely take the bellhousing off and do them separately. It seems like it'd be impossible to put em back on together.

I've done it before with the bellhousing but I guess this one was a no go.

Soooo much easier if you do it separately. Too bad the tabs on my clutch fork broke off so I took it apart again and ordered a new clutch fork.
