Before the engine can be pulled, the driveshaft and transmission has to come out. It was pretty caked with 60 years of oil and dirt, so before I started to remove it, I gave it a pretty good scrubbing and pressure wash.
First I removed the drive shaft and center support bearing.
The u-joints were taped to keep the caps on, and bearings in. (you don’t want these falling out – trust me!)
To remove the transmission, the bell housing cover needs to be removed to get access to the two lower bolts holding the transmission to the bell housing. Remove the top side two bolts and the transmission slides out supported by a floor jack.
The throwout bearing came out next, followed by pressure plate, clutch and flywheel.
