    I am attempting to remove the POS 700R4 transmission from the K5. I have removed froa=nt and rear driveshafts, transfercase, crossmember. I have unhooked all wiring and linkages, removed the 6 bolts holding the bellhousing onto the engine, I have removed the support arms from the 700.

    I can get the tranny to move back from the engine about a finger's width, but no further. Is there something I am forgetting to remove?

    Also, don't forget to remove the filler tube. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif It's usually bolted to the back of the passenger side cylinder head, in such a way that you need to be a contortionist to remove it. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    No freegin kidding. I ended up removing my whole exhaust manifold just to make it easier (was coming out anyway, just not that day).

    I was lucky when I removed my tranny this summer. The fill tube wasn't connected. I did forget to reinstall it before the tranny was totally bolted in though. It wouldn't fit back in there because of the bracket for the bolt. So I just took the angle grinder and cut the bracket off the tube and weiseled it down in there. It has been fine without anything holding it now for 8 months.
