setup to simply transmission removal
« on: October 05, 2021, 07:58:27 AM »
 Well time was I would pull trans in second just to look at something. Never was issue and easy as xxxx. Nowdays the transmissions are getting heavier even after money I spent on aluminum pump,aluminum valve body,lighter case,lighter pan,lighter bolts and anthing else to shave a once off. Either that or I am getting old.Nope thats not it. got to be heavier.

Wondering if any of you have a slick setup for making it easier for us highly mechanical educated fellow to pull trans. Sound better than us old body worn to xxxx from abuse guys.

That's too bad because my Lenco still weighs the same.  ;D

Drop it out the bottom, easy peasy.  Use studs on the block.  Unbolt the converter and zip tie the converter to the trans.  Pull coupler, tb wire and linkage.  Remove nuts from studs, slide the whole thing back and ease it to the ground.  Done!  You can use straps to go around the unit to grip and lower it to the ground.

 Studs in block are kind of std on this deal. I have one at top center that is little longer to help plac e it during install. Dropping out bottom not as easy with diaganols in chassis.

I would lose those diagonals!  Sheldon Gecker gave me the same advise at the winternats one time after watching my pitiful attempt at a quick tranny swap and lifting the dang thing rather than dropping it out the bottom

I second lose that diagonal, wrong place for it, in the bay behind the transmission is OK, but not where you want to drop the tranny, unless it is removable style.
