Hello, I am actually in the process of changing motors, sludge got this one, and I am stumped as to how to get to the upper most bolts on the bell housing. There does not seem to be enough room to get to the upper 4 bolts. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Usually ,you let the transmission hang down (with the crossmember removed) and you can get to them with a 36 inch long 1/2 extension.

Thanks tactransman it is a 4x4, so do I need to remove the drive shafts before lowering the trans?
