Word of advice... next time, pull the motor.. its a lot easier.

Put a rope around the output shaft, run that up through the shifter hole, and lift the rear end of the tranny up then slam the rope in the door to hold it up like that. Then get yourself under the tranny (feet towards the front of the car), and have a friend lift up the front of the tranny so you can get under it - then just bench it into place. Or get a tranny jack - they are only like $50 from Harbor Frieght.

Pushing on the engine is key. Need to point those studs on the engine bellhousing down ward making it WAY easier to slip the transmission bellhousing onto the studs. I'm pretty scrawny in the arms and we had little trouble lifting it with teh jack assisting us. Joe is a bear and was able to push on the engine and lift the trans at the same time so you might need to track down one mroe person for the install
Good luck! ALso dont make my mistake by NOT replacing the throw out bearing!!!! Nothing like putting it all back together only to hear your throwout bearing over your exhuast! Get a new throw out bearing on there !
