Yeah, I forgot to show that part. I saved the alignment tool and stowed it with the paperwork from the Tremec Installation.When you installed the clutch and pressure plate, did you use one of those plastic splined centering shaft tools to support the clutch/pressure plate center then remove after it's bolted on? I've only ever done a clutch job by myself and recall that tool made it very easy to get lined up.
I suspect that the transmission went in easier because of 2 things: The clutch must have been aligned better and the assembly lube on mating surfaces.
Here is a small confession.
I make these build threads for a few reasons. ONE is that I like to pass along information and sometimes to get advice on better ways to get the project done. Another reason is that THIS is an open and public record. I can go back in 2-5 or 10 years and read what I did here.
I've been at car shows and approached by FBBO members that commented on the Tremec thread and how it helped them.
That is a good feeling to hear that.
