Default pulling the tranny

How hard/long would it be to pull the tranny out of a 4.6l v8 of a 94 cougar. I have no expierence in it but my buddy does. I was just curious how hard it would be to see if i could do it myself.

its not very hard at all, prob 2-3 hours for 1 person to pull the engine/trans. assembly if everything comes apart w/o a hitch.

putting it back in doesn't necessarily require an extra hand, but it sure does help.

you can do it without pulling the motor.. Take out all the tranny bolts, flywheel bolts, and pull out the tranny mount. Not sure if it unbolts from the frame though.

On MN12 cars I'm pretty sure you have to tilt the rear hogs-head downward and remove the fuel tank

i would, unless you have a shop with all the tools at your disposal.

just hear me out,

that is hard and dangerous to do by yourself underneath a car without being in a professional shop with a lift, tranny jack, and an extra set of hands, especially when mating the engine and trans upon re-installation.

after 23 years of wrenching on cars with dad and grandpa in the garage and driveway, and 7 of those years at a shop, i will stand by it 100% in pulling the engine/trans. together as the safest and easiest way to replace a trans by yourself in a timely manner without proper facilities.
