Chris, A few years ago you posted a thread with a picture lifting the T/C, Tranny and bellhousing through the floor, damned if i can find it. I need to do mine again, last time i had Mike to help and he did most of it, sadly he is no longer around rovers. I have floors, tunnel, seats and seat box out, rest looks straight forward just would like a refresher
Jimmy

Chris - any idea on how long it takes to get everything out of the way for the tranny/TC pull? Looks like it more prep work but easier to get it out than going from underneath.

When we did it it took less than an hour to remove seats, seat box, and transmission tunnel. There are a whole lot of screws to get that done though. Seems like about 100. Come up with some sort of good sorting system otherwise you'll end up with leftovers that don't seem to fit anywhere.

It really was the easy way to pull the tranny. Once the seat box is gone you can reach everything from above. Disconnect driveshafts, wrap a tow chain tightly around tranny and transfer case, unbolt the bell housing and lift it with an engine hoist out the passenger door.

Now that I've done it I could probably do the whole job from start to finish in under four hours with a buddy's help. Very little crawling around under the truck. Only to remove the lower bell housing plate. Much more enjoyable a job.

Note, his time applies only if your truck is from texas. Otherwise get out the grinding wheel and buy a new set of screws and bolts.

I suppose that's true. We do get a bit spoiled down this way. Usually, bolts just magically unscrew on our first attempt. I was horrified when I saw the rust on CvC's old 90 when he first moved down here. And he said that wasn't bad.

CVC's was not bad at all for an east coast truck, but even one like I bought that lived its entire life indoors, still has some corrosion if it is from the east coast.

Tony - thanks for the info. I have a spare R380 sitting in the garage but the one that's in the 90 now isn't too horrible. Just was curious how long the "thru the door" method took as it looks like 1/3 of the truck is removed.

Chris - thanks for the pics - I'll bookmark that page for when I do my swap someday.
