I secured an engine and drivetrain with 65k on the clock for a killer deal, and since my trans is going south, I was figuring on swapping both out at the same time. I know the trans takes a couple hours, but how long does it take you to do a swap.
I was figuring on pulling rad, grill rad support and possibly fended if it will make it easier.
Any tips or tricks?
Mechanical ability is average or better, my best trans time was a clutch replacement on an awd import, and I got that done in 3.5 hours.

Unless you got a big cherry picker, I would NOT do the engine and trans together. You are talking about a very awkward 1500+lbs

Good point. I was actually planning on dropping the trans and doing it peicemeil, not as a unit.
