I would love to hear any ideas re: swapping an NP203 that does not involve manhandling it. I am considering buying a transmission jack adapter, anyone use any of these with success? Are there any other ideas?

Thanks in advance

E-town baby!
Unbolt the tranny tunnel and use an engine hoist through the passenger door. Rig it up and lower it down.

Well I have a new favorite tool in my garage...it is an old gas-charged desk chair that I removed the back from...I simply compress it, roll it under the truck, pull the lever and let eh seat cushion go op to the t-case unbolt the 8 bolts holding my 205 to the adapter, pul it back and when you pull the lever with the weight of the 205 on there, it will lower /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gifI have had over 400lbs on it before..works great

A tranny jack is good to but that cost $$$ that I would rather spend on other things like beer and parts for my D60

Well, Chris...I really don't mind spending $$$ on tools...I've bought an engine hoist, engine stand, welder, 3 ton floor jack, and quite a few other "toys" as my wife calls them in the last few months to support this project. So a tranny jack adapter isn't a stretch for me unless there is a better way...(kinda like the chain hoist through the hump idea)

Thanks for the replies!

i have used the transmishion jack adapter thing and it made the job much easier.you just have to have a jack that lifts that high and a good concrete serface to roll the jack back away from the tranny then drop it down. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

My mom actaully got me a motorcycle jack for my V Star this Xmas. It worked great for putting in my 205. I didn't think of using it for putting in the range box of my 203 because my neighbor was standing around doing nothing so I reqruited him. I've also used it for putting in my D60. It has a nice wide stance, a low profile, and a nice wide platform. I had to use 2 4x4 blocks and a 40mm ammo can to get extra height because I have 6" suspension and 42" tires but it worked great. Best of all it was free.
