the second time, I used a floor jack, lots of 2x8 short pieces, and a bungee cord
I was able to get the tranny up, and slide blockes under the front and back to help raise it up/stabilize it... once high enough, I set the bottom front of the tranny on the engine crossmember, and blocked the back end up. then using wood blocks with the floor lift, go the tranny to the right height, and used the bungee to attach it to the hood/something sturdy above the engine compartment. (not to hold it, but for a little added stability. then I loosened all the pressure plate bolts, so the clutch could move with little effort, but still stayed in place... then raised/lowered tileted to match up, and pulled on the floor jack, and it slid right in. after securing the bell housing/tranny together, then I went back and tightened the PP bolts in the correct pattern.torque settings, through the starter hole.
if you've got a buddy to help, it'll make it that much easier.....
