Default Where should I pull the driveline apart to stor this tranny?

I'm keeping the tranny from the 94 since it is the same ratio as mine, And I hear if I change some electronics I can make it work. I'll store it in my shed, But where should I pull it apart? Take the CV'* off? Just leave it all together? I want as much of it off as posible, but I don't want something important exposed...

you should be able to remove the cv'* and axles out of it and it will be fine, be careful if it has fluid still in it, you will be in store for a bath.

Cool. I already got the engine basket sitting on the ground.

Just wondering how hard is it to bend an A-arm, cause the one on the drivers' side is waaaay folded back....

what i did was take two large screw drivers and put them behind where the axles insert and push out with the screw drivers. it is a PITA but it will eventually come out.

Yep, but I used a crow bar, Gary the local Honda aficionado came by and showed me.
