    I seem to have every bolt out to drop it except one....the one dead center at the top. Is there a secret that I don't know about? I have pulled the crossmember, and dropped the tranny/transfer case to the point that the transfer case is sitting on the next crossmember back. I think I can see this bolt with a flashlight looking from the back of the transmission, but not 100% sure I am looking at the right bolt. It looks like it is a stud with another bracket over it....who in their right mind would do that to us?

    I am thinking I am going to go ahead and drop the transfer case first, then do the transmission on it's own...this would allow me to drop it a little further and might make it possible to get to with a U-joint and 10 foot extension (slight exaggeration). But...I have a question about separating the tranny and transfer case. See pic first:

    Do I pull the bolts (A), or the nuts (B)? In other words, does the adapter stay on the tranny or the transfer case. According to the Haynes manual, I pull the nuts....but that just doesn't feel right to me. It looks to me like there is a seal between the adapter and the transfer case, and not at the tranny, which makes me think the adapter should stay on the transfer case. Any thoughts on this?
    Everyone should own a Ford once in their else can you truly appreciate a Chevy?

    I pulled both on my tranny and replaced the gasket.
