My Garage
mating engine and trans


Engine is on a stand and having never done this before (only toploaders, do the engine first and then the trans with engine in the car) wondering the best way to mate the two, as I want to install them as an assembly.

Looks like you need to hang the engine on a hoist, attach the flywheel to engine, then engine and flywheel to trans, making sure to align the converter studs.

Wondering about lining the two up with the engine on the hoist, as its all painted dropping it on the ground seems like great way to ding up the nice new paint on the oil pan. And lifting the trans to align and bolt-up sounds like at least a 3 person job... usually its just me and the tools...

Tips and tricks?
