In the middle of a project, need some help...
Well my ignition cylinder broke on me 2 weeks ago, so my car is back on jackstands. This project onset earlier than planned, but it is going along well so far.
Things I am replacing/installing:
Mild Jspec Tranny
3.73 True Track Differential
255 LPH HP fuel pump
Solid rubber motor/tranny mounts
new trans crossmember
new torque converter
and a whole lot more
Questions I have
-Torque converter installation?
What is involved with this? It is a 04 marauder t/c, so if it doesnt have a t/c fluid plug, what do I do about priming the t/c with merconV before initial start?
got the exhaust down, and the d/s and tank out, so how do I disconnect the diff from the half axles?
-Engine and trans removal together
is it possible to do this in the garage? Will I need to lift the front of the car, or is there enough clearance already? Any other tips?
since I am installing new trans, diff, and d/s, I dont have factory index marks. Will I need the new drivetrain professionally balanced?
Thanks for any help
All Glory to God!
