    Help removing trans

    I'm in the middle of a clutch swap and I'm two bolts short of dropping the trans. Any tips on reaching the top two bolts that hold the trans to the bell housing? Keep in mind- I have no lift and I'm lying on my back on the ice cold concrete (thank God for the propane heater in the garage- it's hovering around 30 degrees tonight.

    Long extensions -- like a few feet worth with a swivel. Go raid your buddy's toolbox if you need to.

    Driver side was okay, but holy crap, the pass side was a bear. Thanks for the help! Now if I could just get this damn Tick MS installed I'd be set.

    Another question: how difficult is it to replace the input shaft seal? Any guides or help would be great.

    dude on the side, i have hardened engine mounts so i don't worry too much, but leave two bottom bolts tranny, drop the jack so the tranny hangs lower and make sure the intake is not hittin the firewall (don't wanna crack it) and you can get at those top bolts easier, do the same for puttin it back in, i also put the shifter on when the tranny is hangin like that.
