    get enough air under your truck so you can fit under there, It would be best if you had a tranny jack, but if you dont, then i would try to secure the tranny to a jack, unbolt all the Lines, hoses, Linkages that you can see, then remove the bolts on the bellhousing, then take off the inspection plate, and un bolt the torque converter from the flywheel, disconnect both drivelines, then do the x member, drop the tranny and tcase together as one, un bolt the tranny from the x case, after it is on the ground, then bolt up new tranny, you will prolly be changing torque converters too i would imagine, so when you put the new torque converter (tranny is still on the ground) Look in the tranny where the torque converter goes and there will be 2 notches, you have to make sure the torque converter seats all the way bacck in those notches (it can be a bitch sometimes) Then Just Repeat all the steps above, and put it back in.... Youll want a friend or two to help.... Sometimes it can be a bitch to stab the tranny into the motor and get the bellhousing to line up, atleast it was for me, but ive only put in like 2-3 trannies ;P

    good luck, tell us how you did

    disconnect the battery
    jack the truck up if you don't have enough room under it without jacking it up.
    pull both drive-lines. if you have a slip yoke rear then use a rattle paint can lid and duck-tape it to the rear when you pull the drive-line that will keep the fluid from going everyplace
    disconnect the speedo cable.
    remove starter
    disconnect shifters
    disconnect kick down cable
    disconnect weiring from tranny
    remove inspection cover that covers the flywheel
    remove the 4 converter bolts
    remove the bottom 4 bell-housing bolts
    put tranny jack under tranny and take the 2 tranny mount bolts out
    take the 4 cross-member bolts out
    slightly lower tranny then get the top 2 bell-housing bolts
    pull tranny back-wards slightly and start to slowly lower
    if you need bolt sizes let me know /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    you will need a long extension and a swivel socket to get them with the tranny slightly lowered or you can pull them first from the engine bay with a wrench. but i would do it from underneath with a long extension and swivel socket

    Well, I'd be happy to help, but my truck is out of commission until Thursday night because my oil-cooler is acting more like a sieve right now.

    I know "nofeartruckin00" is in New Berlin. Maybe see if he's around and wants to do it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
