It might have also helped if you had someone push in on the clutch pedal.bugdewde wrote:greg72 wrote: Like the long bolts with the heads cut off that I use to align manual transmissions.....makes one man tranny swaps while on your back a breeze...well easier anyway
Gotta remember that..... one of my last H-body tranny swaps was the worst swap I ever did. Hours trying to get the input shaft into the pilot bushing. Just couldn't find the right angle......... longer bolts would have helped I'm sure.

post pics guys so whoever needs a tool can see how it was mcgyvered lol. btw on that #5 plug i have to remove the screw on cap from the plug to get the wrench past the big hedders(1 3/4 hookers) and the end of the plug and thats with the accel shorty plug i also have to run a sock on that wire to keep from melting the boot from heat off the hedder(its real close) just enough room to get the sock past the hedder.i thought about a twelve point but i thought it might break easier or possably slip if the plugs were in a bit too tight i have to reach up under from the front of the car to get at the#5 plug and this short wrench works great! the fellow that built my motor loaned me his wrench like this so i copied it for my future plug changes.
there now thats the kind of stuff im talking about that one little tool that might get a member out of a jam one day!patrick1151 wrote:Dave from Dave's Vega Village told me about a tool you can make to open Astre/Vega hoods when the hood release cable breaks.
