Err... you should always drain the thing unless you want to swim in transmission fluid.

It's about 100% more PITA if you dont drain it. Nothing worse than a floor covered in transmission fluid and trying to slip it back on.

Like the headless bolt idea. A length of all thread, cut to length would be cheaper and work as well. Combination of that and melts method of kickin, swearin and swillin should work well.

I just think a tranny jack is my best bet

A tranny jack might be overkill. Just use your scissor jack under the engine and your floor jack under the trans.

Yeah I swam in it one time when a friend was too cheap to drain it. I was pretty mad about it and swore to never again drop a trans without draining it.

that's the worse part of doing a clutch job is getting the tranny back on


good luck

All thread would not work as well as regular grade 5 bolts. With the length of bolt you'd need to thread into the block and still hang out 2-3 inches, it will be unthreaded and smooth...thus the trans slides on way easier.

Justin, you really should just quit messing with anything else and use the bolt method. Verify clutch disc alignment and that its not bent, then go for it. I've lifted transmissions up to the guide pins from above myself, then slid it on when the splines meshed. One man job.

Good job! Thats how I do mine, strong arm it. The bigger ones I use a jack and some tiedown straps, but just to get it up there, then strong arm the beast.

Congrats on finally getting the damn thing back in. Out of curiosity though, do you have your jack stands on the front tow hooks?

Good work. Last couple times I've dropped/re-installed my trans it was all me. It's not that bad really

Yea I always use a cinder block with a piece of wood to totally level out the motor, then i use my floor jack to move the trans in place and jack it up near the motor.
then just lift it into place with some leather gloves on. Once the shaft is in I always just use the bolts to slowly line it all up and mate the trans and motor.
Deff way harder the first time you do it but gets a bit easier every time.
