JLEMOND Style Transmission Jack

Postby gruff54 » Sun Mar 30, 2014 7:40 pm

After a tip from Jerry, I put this together. Transmission is held very secure. I was always afraid it might fall off the jack before. Not any more. Thanks for the idea Jerry!!!

Oh man, that's so much better than the adapters I tried! I've still got the old mount from the last swap, so I know what I'll be building in the shop next week! Oh, wait... gotta do the taxes... okay, the week after that!

On a slightly different note, what I did use to finally get the trans mounted was running an engine hoist through the front door, and picking up the trans from the main (3-bolt) shifter I welded a ring to a simple flat plate and bolted it to the trans with the shifter bolts. The trans balances very well from that point, although you do loose the ability to put the trans into gear and rotate input shaft to help line up the splines. I am still gonna make a jack adaptor for the MUA-5...

Put it in gear before putting the lift plate in place.
