    I do it BH first...

    It's a PITA either way IMO. To this day I don't understand why they didn't make a 32 spline input shaft, it'd be so much easier to line up that than that blocky 10 spline crap. I always end up having to turn the output shaft while wiggling the tranny to get it to start on the clutch disc splines...then hope the tip slides into the pilot bushing easily.
