    how hard is it to yank off a 205 with it still under the truck. ive never actually dropped the tranny onthe blazer just slid it back to change the flywheel. trying to save some bench pressing weight.
    ill probably slide it back and take off the tc if theres room as well

    thanks

    floor jack with tranny adapter cradle would be the best, or chain the piss out of the case to the floor jack pad

    if u have a tranny jack or something it shouldnt be too bad. I dont care how much u can bench, whatever you do dont remove it by yourself in the "bench press" position. that sucker is fawkin heavy, awkward and just begging to crush some poor saps skull!

    Definately use a floor jack it you have access to one. I have done the bench pressing method, and I don't recommend it. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    With fluid, it weighs about 225lbs and is way akward. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The weight isn't the problem....it is just a teenzy bit harder to hang on to than a 45lb bar. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    ...and then get the splines lined up, inserted, and start the bolts with your "free" hand....since you are only using your "pinkies" /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I will have to agree with you on this one, the 203 is a 500 lb boat anchor /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    When I dropped mine to rebuild the th350 I dropped the 205 first. I did it with a tranny jack and a floor jack. I was on one side balancing the cross member and working the tranny jack while a friend was on the other side with the floor jack and also balancing. Would be nice if there was a single flat spot in the bottom /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif When I put it back in I used a cherry picker with a chain wrapped around the adapter (just happed to be the balance point) and it was ALOT EASIER!
