chiltons sucks even more
Chiltons manuals suck EVEN more. they fail to tell you that a MANUAL transmission must be also removed from the car or at least all mounts removed and hel by a hoist so you can yank it another 3-4 inches away from the engine in order to get the engine out. Oh, btw... get new transmission oil while you are at it because the second you move the tranny, the RH axel will pull out of it's seal and let all the oil run on the ground (you SHOULD replace your tranny oil every 30K miles anyways) so a 1 hour job turned into a 1 day job. I absolutely refuse to give up though, I will finish this project.
