First up today was dealing with the two broken bolts that held the sub frame to the car.
Drilled it out, had to go buy a cobalt drill bit to drill in to hardened steel. Then got the EZout.
Came right out, guess the heat of drilling loosened it up.
Ta da, all out.
A lot of wasted time pulling these.
Need to get the shift kit in the new trans.
Trans jack, I'm buying a trans jack.
Lining it all up, would be so much easier with a trans jack.
Trans all bolted in, now the sub frame.
Wasn't that hard.
Final line up.
Reconnecting the sway bar.
Put the car all the way down, and couldn't get the black jack out.
All done, just a few small details.
Cleaning up the shop.
Off he goes, some fresh trans fluid on the floor, but not finding any leaks, might have been a spill when filling.
Bye bye now
Spent a little time cleaning up the shop.
Total time was about 13 hours. 3 hours of that was me pulling parts out of the old trans and installing them in the new transmission, like hardened input shaft, hardened 4th gear shaft, and steel channel plate gaskets. So about 10 hours to swap, 8 hours with no problems.
