Anybody out there have any tips on dropping my transmission?

Hey guys,
Looks like I'm gonna be building a tranny soon and to save some money I'd like to drop it out myself. I am an experienced wrench turner but have no experience with transmissions. I have a guy that's going to help that has a lot of transmission experience just never with a 6.4. If anybody has any advice and would like to share I would be very grateful! Thanks!

I have never done a 6.4 tranny but I couldn't imagine it being much more difficult then any other transmission.. I used to be a cummins owner so I have a lot of experience with dropping trannys lol..

Dropping the trans is about the same as any other trans. Just be aware that this transmission is VERY heavy compared to most cars and pickups, so dont let it get away from you.

Deep breathes when removing the bolts from tc, a crowbar to get it off the dowels, a trans jack is a must and some compressed air powered tools help. Maybe get a friend to help that has small hands lol. Its pretty straight forward but also a pita.

I bought a transmission adapter from Auto Zone for my floor jack. That was WELL worth it. I also took the starter out and rolled motor with a flat screw driver (our bump starter tool died). Finally, the witness hole for the converter bolts would give the access I needed, it does now...
