    Default removal of transmission

    Gentlemen is it possible to remove the transmission from our vehicles without removing the engine? I have looked underneath my car and all I see are big crossmembers and nothing that is bolted in order to remove them to take out the tranny. thanks Vinnie

    In the transmission service manual, the removal of the engine is requested.

    Look here for further informations:

    I can attest to the fact that removal of the transmission leads to an acute case of while I'm at it disease... it does require the engine to come out too.

    Absolutely true...I'm approaching my second year of the disease. Hopefully I have the car back on the road in a few weeks. Last addition.. an electric fuel pump with a momentary switch to prime the carb before starting.

    Valley Transmission, near me has been in business forever and removed/rebuilt my trans with the engine in place. Greg told me the Mark is the same as the early Bird with the crossmember in the way. Unless you can find someone that has been around for a long time and knows how to do it you will have to remove the engine.
