I'm not worried about that...unless something goes wrong, I won't be putting the TH350 back in.
I got the T5 removed from the donor vehicle today and cleaned it up. I need to buy a decent set of pin drifts/punches so I can remove a roll pin to get the T5 open. Usually I improvise with an allen wrench or a cut-off nail but that's not working and I don't want to mangle anything.
While removing the T5 I was surprised at just how much I could lower the transmission and attached engine. I got about 4 inches of drop at the shifter. I was able to awkwardly but effectively remove the upper bellhousing bolts using wobble extensions.
I didn't really care in the S10 but when I take the TH350 out of the Buick will I need to support the engine?
