Hello to all at the Mustang source
I am trying to get the transmission out of my wife's car, 2001 4.6 5 speed. Some internet homework has given me the impression the tranny is a
presently the transmission will not pull off of the back of the engine.
-removed the H pipe
-removed the driveshaft
-removed the starter including the INFAMOUS third starter bolt
-two top bellhousing bolts
-3 bellhousing bolts on the left (drivers side)
-2 bellhousing bolts on the right (passenger side)
-2 motor plate bolts facing rearward at the bottom of the transmission
-clutch cable removed
kinda perplexed, its stuck like chuck, I have gotten under there and wobbled and shaked and shook and keep looking for another bellhousing bolt?
thinking it is something very stupid to make me want to ***** slap myself.....
so I keep looking and feeling around the bellhousing looking for something else holding this puppy on.........
I dunno....thinking dowel pins stuck in holes or input seized to pilot or throwout mangled and made a salad with the fingers.....but looking in there I can see no carnage.
car had been making noise for about a year, presumed it was the TO bearing, then the burning smell and smoking began followed by hideous racket.
so I'm trying to get this tranny out but just when I thought it would be on floor of my garage its hung up with my ATV jack underneath it.
if anybody can think of another bolt I am missing please do tell, thanks
worst case if it is really hung up inside I'll have to pull motor+tranny and pull em apart on the garage floor..........
