Default Ok, were getting close to pulling the trans

Question for the gurus:

What is the best way to support the block? We will have the truck blocked up about 3 feet. In order to remove the bellhousing, I need to support the rear of the block until we cab bolt up the 700R. I'll also need to remove the read cross member.

Thanks
Jake

Support the rear portion of pan. The deep sump part. Use a thick board big enough to cover the whole pan sump area, This will spread the load. Then add other blocking as needed to put on jack or ? That will hold the rear of motor and be out of the way.
Of course a cherry picker from the top will work also. Chained to some rear bolts, like rear exhaust or intake manifold bolts. May need hood off for that.

Thanks AZKen. We'll have to block it up. I was able to press out the U-joint for the yoke on the driveshaft ( friend has a press) I went to a website called Driveshaft Specialist and they have the correct yoke I need to use with the rear of the 700R4 27 spline shaft. The Hydramatic used a 16 spline. I'll order the new spline and joint Friday.

Their website has a sweet measuring scale you can print out and use to select your U-Joint. I most probably need. 1310 joont. I'll post the measuring link tomorrow

Was on a Royal Majesty cruise last week, (boy did we need the break) I got back on the the truck today, drained the trans fluid, and pulled the torus bolts, all 30 of them. They was fun.....
