Question on dropping trans

Getting ready to drop the trans out of my car. For those of you who have done this are the motor mounts enough to support the engine or do I need to block up the bellhousing?

The motor mounts held my engine fine. Are you using a trans jack or using the McGyver technique like I did?

The motor mounts should be enough for the engine alone.

ON the same note ... i have been beating my head over the new track times, poor, only mustarded a 15.2 with all the new added stuff, where as i was at 15.4 with npi engine. I just thought of something stupid i did. I was changing the tail housing gasket and wanted to support the tranny... WELL i first put the jack on the pan, , it started to bend some to i found a new spot on the bell housing. Well i decided since i had the cats down and out of the way ... y not delete the 3rd cat. Well put it all back together and it just didnt feel right. I had totally forgotten aobut the pan/jack combo til a few mins ago. I was sure i hadnt gotten used to the new acceleration this quickly or that the deletion of the 3rd cat made a difference to the neg. I was thinking maybe this thing gonna crap out on me soon.

SOOOOO.... my question is ... with a restricted flow of fluid. What kind of damage can be done to my tranny ... I light accel it feels good ... anything over 50% feels like it bogging down ... so i guessing it can meet the flow requirements for at least light duty til i get all my research and parts for jmod. Im hoping that if my magnet is clean, i had did the torgue convertor upgrade and full fluid flush 3 weeks b4, i should be safe.?

no I didn't get a speedcal....KD said with the 3.27 a purple gear is all I need. Well the trans is out...the only casualty was the MLPS. I bought a trans jack adapter for my floor jack. Any suggestions on the best method to flush the lines? I have a new rad and cooler. Aaron I think I will take you up on your offer when it comes time to reinstall

KD is right, the output shaft is accurate up to 3.27 in a tbird.

I thought you ran a steeper gear than that for some reason.

Make sure that you get a magnefine magnetic inline filter to keep the metal out of your new trans.

Bulkparts.com sells the unit you need.

I use a bottle of kooler kleen to clean out the lines.

I get mine from a local shop, but a google search showed a bunch of hits
