I pulled mine ('66 fastback w/ 289) out through the top. I didn't see how I could get it out from underneath with the engine installed, so I pulled the driver's side header and the clutch linkage and was able to get it out that way. This job looks worse than it is. A helper in the car to guide the shaft is VERY useful.gjz30075 said:The box then gets unbolted from the frame and finnagled out from underneath.
ummm, to what are you refferring to with the blah. . . . Also, what do you mean the pitman arm is a waste of time? He does, in fact need to remove it in order to get the box out. If their engine is installed, it's a whole lot easier to remove the pitman arm from the gear box, rather than the drag link. And, it's not the toughest thing to remove. It's actually one of the easiest- so long as you have a pitman arm tool.Roddster said:Blah-blah-blah: That pitman arm is about the toughest thing to remove, and, a waste of time.
