Been awhile since I posted an update. Today I began work on pulling my transmission. The torque convertor is already out along with the engine, so nothin to worry about there. Undid the speed sensor and the shift linkage. Was undoing the bolts connecting it to the brace, but need a deepwall socket for one of them, so I put it up for the day. Earlier this week I got the new bellhousing and all put on the new transmission, so it's ready to go. Now I just gotta find my throwout bearing, and get some other hardware, and we're ready to start putting things back togethor.
