Transmission Removal

Hey guys im tossin in a new clutch and was wondering if I have to remove the front axles. The repair manual says that the truck has to be raised off the gound, tires takin off and axles removed before I can take off the tranny but that isn't making any sense. How do you guys remove your trannies???. By the way i have a 6sp manual.
thanks

That makes no sense at all. Should be able to unbolt it, disconnect everything, and lower it down with the use of a trans jack. Just make sure you secure it to the jack real good. Being you do not have a trans pan for the trans to sit on. It makes it awkward to lower the trans down. I have heard of some people removing the shifter, making a plate and using a cherry picker or engine hoist to lower the trans down.

I used to use an over head crane on the 5-ton Military trucks. But I don't think you want to cut a hole in your roof.

All you have to do is:

Take apart the shifter inside the truck.
Disconnect the NEGITIVE battery terminals
Unbolt the starter and hang it up out of the way with a wire coat hanger
Unplug everything from the tranny and transfercase (Don't forget the trans cooler lines!!! AND DO NOT BREAK THEM!!!!)
Take off front and rear drive shafts
LOOSEN the tranny X-member from the frame and the tranny
Loosen the tranny / Take off x-member
Pull the tranny back out of the way.

I hope you have at the MINIMUM a tranny jack. I did mine laying on my back with all four wheels on the ground. (I have 35's and a 4" lift though.) It is IMPOSSIBLE to do w/out a tranny jack with rollers on it. The X-member is tricky...really hard to explain. There is a writeup somewhere on doing it.

TAKE YOUR TIME and use the right tools. Budget double the time ANYONE tells you it will take. I read that it takes about 10 hrs.....it took me more like 30!!!! Having a lift is going to make it A LOT easier.

I think that abot covers most of it. Understand that the above is a VERY basic what-to-do.

You need to find another mechanic because I sure wouldn't let that idiot touch my truck!!! He probably thinks you need to drop the spare to change the oil too!!
