    clearance required to remove transmission

    Any one know how much clearance I need to remove my T56 trans? I have it off the ground but don't want any surprises when I try to remove it. I've got about 14 inches right now.

    I drove the front up on ramps and then bolted 4X4 pieces to the ramps so it could not come down. Then I jacked up the back end and put bricks under the tires and put jack stands under the frame (Just in case). this leaves me 14 inches of clearance under the car to drag out the trans when I get it removed. I am hoping this is enough room to work.

    yea thats enough room to get the trans out. But you will probably have a sore back from being crunched under the car.

    You should have enough room comming out. If you don't have some sort of jack for the trans, you may want to think about one on the way back in.It can be a pain aligning the trans properly while holding it up( 120 pounds).

    I am not to fond of dropping transmissions on my head so I will be using a jack.
