Pulling Motor, Stuck Guibo

Hey all,

I'm pulling my motor and transmission together out of my 76 02 and I'm stuck. Everything is preped, disconected and ready togo except my guibo. I cant for the life of me get the bolts to break loose so I can pull everything! Is there an alternative to this method where I can disconect from the drive shaft and still pull the motor and transmission out as a combo? Thanks in advance for everyones words of wisdom!

heat the nuts with a torch and get them off.

support bottom of tranny with a jack and remove the rear tranny mount from the car to get more clearance for the wrenches on the guibo bolts.

you can hold the nut or bolt head nearest the tranny with a wrench (the bent one in your car tool kit) and then get a socket with a long breaker bar on the rear side and break them loose.

What Bill said. Or a pipe (and safety glasses on your eyes)

on the wrench nearest you...

They can be pretty tight.

You CAN cut the rubber webbing on the guibo, but that would be

a lot harder than getting the 4 easiest bolts loose, I think.

If removing the guibo with the trans in the car is posing serious challenges, you can remove the 4 bolts connecting the driveshaft to the differential, the 2 bolts connecting the center bearing to the tunnel, and the two bolts connecting the transmission support to the tunnel. At that point, you should be able to pull the motor out with the trans and driveshaft attached.

Warning: you've got to be careful or you'll bang up your car when you pull the motor out with such a long tail wagging behind it. If this worries you, I suggest you lift the body off of the front subframe. You can then drag the entire drivetrain out from under the car, fully connected. I've done it this way a half dozen times with good success.

sometimes the bolts hang on the metal webbing of the guibo which makes them particularly hard to remove. first a liberal application of pb blaster or equivalent. next take two large hose clamps and make a clamp large enough to go around the guibo and tighten enough to remove the outward pressure on the bolts. you only need to remove 4 to remove the trans but while you in there loosen the other 4 while you have something to hold the drive shaft up and also to keep it from moving around. good luck
