Hi there i finally got my drive shaft out as i didn't know how to take the flexy joint out, just so you know use a flat head and ply the backside of the shaft (dif end) as there's a pipe that goes into the flexy joint bout 2 1/2 mils.

any way now im stuck i dotn know if i should drop my engine to get to the top gearbox bolts as there no way in hell i can get there or is there a trick that any one knows? to get the gear box out?
