Well, despite popular opinion, I decided to pull the tranny before the engine comes out. With my jackstands set at the highest point in front (16.75"), and a few inches up in back, I was just able to snake it out from under the side. This was with it off the jack and on cardboard, and I had to slide the bellhousing around the framerail, the floorpans, and the rocker. Not too much trouble though. Cherry-picker here I come! (The parents will love to hear that! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif)

Not a problem Brian, just remember the effects of gravity are against you on the reverse operation...

I still think it's easier to install the engine and trans as a unit....as long as you have high enough safety stands and a tilter for the hoist...

Just remember, safety first! *G*

Yeah, I know. I think when it comes time for the re-install, I will do them as a unit, I just wanted to keep things as simple as possible for the engine pull, so that's why I opted to drop the tranny first.
