    3D33102D-DE8D-4280-8753-E5E7F76AEC3C.jpeg Got it in this morning. Quite a job by myself. Wouldn’t recommend this for most people by themselves. Took my time, eventually stacked enough wood etc to get it balanced on my floor jack. Remember, I’m crawling on the floor with car couple feet in the air. Tranny is in!!!!

    I did mine on my back in a gravel driveway mostly by myself. Only help I had was my wife pulled the jack forward while I pushed the trans up and in to get it on the dowels. I will NOT do that again, I'll rent a garage Bay for the day if it needs to come out againo_O

    Weather sucks here, do does covid 19. In Vancouver we are in social distancing mode, which is like isolation from your friends and family. Glad I have a few car projects. Hooked up accelerator pedal, finished e brake conversion from turbo 350 to turbo 400...replacing that primary E brake C345002C-46A5-4032-8021-FF4DAF98E2E2.jpeg DA6023E9-1020-4297-8FA8-5EC467C0C6EA.jpeg cable with fenders on a car was a pain in the butt...done now. Last step is installing the 3.5 inch aluminum drive shaft. I’ll post pics once installed.
