Holler if you have any questions. Been there done that enough times that I can tell you the tools to bring at each step of the way. Actually kinda sad.

You must have found a way to get the reverse trans to engine bolt out w/o removing that bracket? It'* much easier with it out.

On the Regal I recently replaced the motor..I found that pulling the PS pump and doing the bracket from the top was pretty easy. then I followed up with the backwards bolt....all from the top.

heck..Even pulled the oil filter adapter off from the top. (A must do on W bodies or they scrape the body on teh way out.
