    the hardest part for me was trying to get the input shaft of the tranny to lineup with the clutch. otherwise its not that hard, just make sure you torque every thing how it is supposed to

    it's not easyy but not impossible either. unbolt torque converter bolts push converter back easy as you dont want to mess up the seal, you will probably need a long thin head ratchet and a shallow socket. might also need someone to hold the crank steady while you break them loose and torque them back. if your going to drop the trans it is a breeze.

    thats for a flex plate not a flywheel, flywheel is on std tranny's and flex plate is on automatic tranny's





    also on a std tranny, you have to remove the pressure plate and the clutch to get to the bolts on the flywheel that hold it to the crank
