I decided to make a picture write up of Gatecrashers method because of many confused people not understanding the easy of this method or even where to bolt on the chain. I hope this well be used 85% more often in hoisting the transmission back up into the motor bay.

Items Needed:
Hoist
12mm wrench/socket
Chain


Before viewing pictures. I am forwarning you they were amateur taken. The photo taker(s) didn't know how to use zoom on my camera, my wife would have been upset if I touched it with my dirty hands. I apologize inadvance for the blurry and far vew

Step One:
Locate the 2 shift link bolts center top of the transmission bell housing View Attach Thumbnail 1.

Step Two:
Bolt the chain to both bolts. Yes don't worry those bolts can hold your transmission. But use your own method if you don't think the bolts are graded high enough. Leave 5-6 inches between chain to loop it over the hook on hoist. View Attach Thumbnail 2 and 3

Step Three:
Slid, drag whatever you choose just find a way to place transmission back underneath engine bay. Roll hoist up to bumper(I used a pad to protect my bumper from getting scratched up by hoist). loop chain up over the hook on your hoist. If you don't have a hook on your hoist find a way to attach chain to hoist.

Step Four:
Start cranking hoist up, watch that the transmission don't get caught up under your frame! The placement of chain is the center weight distribution point so the transmission lines up 95-99.9% in place!! You may have to wiggle push to align splines but thats it! View Attach Thumbnail 4 and 5

Step Five:
Your done!
WAIT!
Make sure to bolt up transmission before taking hoist and chain off!

This method took us all but 10 minutes to do. :clap:

I'd Like to thank (in alpha order) Dave(davebearclaw), Jimmy#2(3kdreamn) and Ray(viper3k) for there help. Will we ever hang out with out working on our cars?

In closing I'd like to thank Jeff for figuring this weight distrubution lifting spot out!

In closing thanks to Jeff and his amazing find on the center weight distribution and how it lifts it at the right angle to align right up in seconds.

:welcome:

Yes I did this as a reminder. I am seeing more and more of us pulling our transmissions this year. Many people are visual like myself I never did find pictures of this method.

:). My pleasure.

I take it new end cap seals are no longer available?
are you commiting towards my picture of the end case? That is a new seal. I just freak out and decided to be crazy and use some sealant to better protect it. :D

My old one was done in by me smashing it with the end case getting sat on top of it. But I had NO plan to reuse it.

Thanks for all the positive comments. The real thanks belongs to the discover of this method!

You should add this and the pics to the wiki.Don't forget that you can pop out the center breather to get a good look at the input shaft splines. If they are not aligned, then put a rachet on the crank pulley and turn the engine.

Uhm, has someone done this yet? I could do it but I'm sure someone could be more proper in wording than me.
