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?

Trans mount, exhaust, etc. is off, but engine mounts are still on, then drop the rear of the trans down as far as it will go (until the fan hits the thin plywood you put between the fan and condenser). Come in and up from the rear with a bunch of extensions on your socket wrench. Enjoy!.
