    Found a 400, I'm too impatient to wait till my next day off to do this project. Never taken a tranny out by myself and never taken this one out. I see, 2 bolts on each side of the engine block, 2 bolts on each side of the crossmember, shifter linkage, and a few lines going to the tranny. I just take those off, remove driveshafts and I can then lower then tranny/t-case correct? Looks like the starter may have to ubolt as well? Oh yeah, how do I get the flywheel to separate from the motor, just pull the tranny back a couple inches before lowering, correct? Thanks and wish me luck I'll sure need it.

    it should go something like this first disconect the battery then jackup and support the truck. then take starter lose 2 bolts then take inspection cover or dust cover off 4 bolts then the 4 converter bolts then shift likage and transfer case shifter then kickdown cable then unplug any electrical plugins then the speedo cable then the drivelines then the bottom 4 bellhousing bolts put jack under tranny then the 4 crossmember bolts and the 2 tranny mount bolts lower slightly till top 2 tranny bolts are acssesible(sp?) take them out and slowly pull tranny back and lower tranny down
