Hi! Do I still need a banjo bolt to check the pressure if I let the tranny down a little as you specified for changing the modulator or will there be enough clearance for that?You'll make it easier on yourself if you drop the transmission mount bracket and the carrier bearing bracket and let the trans sag down to the limits of the engine mounts. It would be a good idea to disassemble the throttle linkage to prevent damage. Be sure to use a jack under the trans pan to do the lowering.
I just completed this job and I second the cautions about pulling the old one out as straight as possible.
My new green modulator came with a different pin design than the old one and a different cap. The new cap appears to have a ring of slots that holds the T handle into position once adjusted.
