I've always wanted to install the entire driveline as an assembly, factory-style, and I finally did it.

It was ridiculously easy with a jack under the trans and a cherry picker raising the engine. For a serious restoration project, I think I'd recommend the procedure as the standard approach.

Sorry, no pics. Ever since Photobucket screwed the universe, I've stopped documenting projects like I used to.

The process was easy...I raised the tub on for a jack stands as high as it would go. I then slid the engine under the nose of the car and bolted up the torque tube to it, with a little bit of help from a floor jack raising the transmission end. I then bolted on the gearbox.

Once everything was together I raised the engine end of the assembly with a cherry picker and raised the transmission end with a floor jack. It was ridiculously easy.

O_O Wow that's cool. Sure looks simpler to drop/reinstall the whole kit and kaboodle than to deal with each part separately, contorting hands and limbs to get those last two upper bolts...

Indeed, and so much easier to align the clutch when the engine and tube are on the ground.
