@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonafter lots of heating and dousing with water then heating and dousing with liquid wrench. I finally got maybe 1/8th turn out of the last bolt18:34:28
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonunfortunately now I can't get a wrench on it anymore >_<18:34:38
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonI'll have to jack up the engine more18:34:51
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonVICTORY!20:27:03
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonI managed to tip the engine way forward to let me get a breaker bar on the bolt with like 2 feet of extensions20:27:20
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonthen I got the whole flange red hot and some yanking got it out20:27:36
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonNow I can start trying to install the trans...20:27:52

Hooray! Wait, Liquid Wrench?!? I've never had good luck with that stuff. PB 'Blaster or BG's In-Force all the way.

I've never attempted to rent a transmission jack before. If you're using a lift, it's damn near a requirement.

@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonI used up all my other penetrants, found a can of liquid wrench way in the back of a cabinet21:33:53

@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Peterson shortblock: I had the truck on jack stands but mine can't get it high enough so I think I'll use ramps 21:34:31
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonI found a maybe 12"x10" piece of 1/4" steel plate I might try bolting to the top of my jack21:34:54
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonAnd strapping the transmission down to21:35:04
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonNow how do I get the stupid thing on ramps...22:37:18

@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonGot the transmission almost on there, got stuck on the last half inch or so02:02:43
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonI'll have another go tomorrow I guess02:02:53
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonStill no luck14:29:38
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonGoes in almost all the way, I can tell the splines are lined up because turning the output shaft turns the flywheel14:29:58
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonBut it won't quite seat on the pins14:30:07
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonhelp?14:43:28
@venant:matrix.orgvenantwiggle, wiggle... or restab... fun yes?14:51:00
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonheh14:51:17
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonthis is heaviest transmission I've ever tried to install too14:51:25
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonI'm starting to wonder if the clutch is misaligned, but I don't want to take the trans down yet14:52:05
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonarrrrrgh18:18:11
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonI can push the transmission forward and hear a 'tap' but there's nothing in the way around the bellhousing, so that means I just have to line up the pilot bearing right?18:18:59
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonor could something else be messed up18:19:22
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonI moved it around as much as I could and I can't get it any further in...19:15:49
