    pulling my 700R4. Current situation: Tcase is gone, dip stick gone, cable that went to the carb gone... trying to ubolt the TC from the flywheel. I have access to 1 bolt... how do I get things to spin so I can get to the rest? :confused: yes, I'm aware this is a dumb question. lol!

    also, I'm going with a full manual th400... does that mean all these stupid cables / wires going from the trans to the carb etc will no longer be needed? Hope not, they are routed in such a way as to be a total PITA to get at. lol!

    haha i think there was just a thread on this... ur gonna just have to put a box wrench on it.. and just pull down.. or push up and turn the engine over.. thats what i did.. takes a lil bit of effort but it is easy to turn. Then to get them off.. just keep the closed end of the box wrench on there.. and hit the wrench w/ a hammer.. this will sorta impact the bolt off w/ out spining everything.

    Yeah, just use a pry bar and push up on the teeth and it will go.

    Pull the sparkplugs, and the engine turns over ALOT easier.

    yeppers, got it all figured out. I took a crowbar, with the end wrapped in a rag, stuffed it between the flywheel and the inner lip of the trans. Little pressure and it was enough that I could spin the bolts out. Thanks again for the tips guys, my trans is safe and sound on my garage floor now. :grin:
