Thanks. It is exactly how I remembered when I did it before with a mate (who knew how & what), except on Saturday I kept the short drive shaft in (which was in the way) and yesterday I couldn't wiggle enough to free the diff flange from the flywheel. Also, the 2Y box is longer due to the 5th gear as the 02A, which should make it easier in my case. On the other hands the 02A box is wayyyyy heavier. In the end I know I'll get it out, that's not the biggest problem. The problem I have is the difficulty of slapping it back in. When I first mounted the gearbox earlier this year I had the same problem; I just could not get it in. And that was with the engine gearbox completely free (on the trolley), no subframe, car or anything in the way. I parted the engine and gearbox and tried again another day, then it did go in. The time I spent now I could have just as well spent just dismounting everything (exhaust, steering knuckle, fuel, electrics) and lowering the subframe completely. I hoped this would be a faster way.
