I'm actually considering doing that this weekend myself, time permitting. I'm going to be draining the tranny anyways, so it seems a perfect time to get up in there. Thing is, I've never touched a tranny before either, so I'm rather nervous. Should all these parts be available at my local O'Reilly or Advance Auto (maybe Home Depot or Lowe's for the drill bits).
I won't be able to order from Dan Newman, unfortunately. Also, what articles should I look at in the tech articles section besides the jerry's mod one. Speaking of, it says to see step #9 in the shifty business report. Which one is that. The title of the jerry's mod article is shifty business, but step #9 makes no sense in relation to that.
What do you guys recommend for raising the car up? I was considering those metal ramps you can drive the front end up on, though I'm not sure of anybody that has some I could borrow and I'd hate to have to pay out the $$$ to buy a set (how much are they anyways?).
