    Support of transmission during spline lube, late model airhead.

    I'm reading the articles but I don't see what supports the transmission when its pulled back. In the back of my mind I recall something about the transmission mounting bolts being loose but not removed? Help appreciated.

    Set a bottle Jack with a small piece of wood under Tran to support.

    The transmission mounts with 6 bolts. You will need two matching bolts at least 100mm (4") long. Cut the heads off the extra long bolts and slot the end with a hack saw or Dremel tool so they can be turned with a screw driver.

    Remove the two transmission mounting bolts that have the alignment dowels around the holes (I forget which they are - look in your manual). Thread the two long bolts into these two holes. Then us these to steady/support the transmission as you slide it out and back in.
