trans drop

I just put a 700R4 in my chevy SWB build. it turned out to be wormy and I had to pull it. I ran a cargo strap over the roof and through both doors, hooked a rachet strap to that down through the doghouse hole and around the tranny. took the weight off the tranny bolts, removed them and then racheted the tranny to the ground. there was just enough clearance to drag the tranny out without jacking up the body.I impressed the crap out of my helper with my shade tree method.

That's not Shade Tree, that's pure Redneck. Good job.

Or in the more complimentary vein its more USA ingenuity!

A method by any other name that's also quite stellar in its execution and usability is something to behold------------and share too!

Sounds like a 2-strap job.... all that engine tranny stuff was done in my rebuild shop, also known as the other side of the house.
