tore down my old trans and almost got the shaft out.  there is something holding it in but i can't figure out what it is.  i get everything but the shaft out so i should get it out tomorrow.  i will post a thread with a lot of pics on the tech section tomorrow and probably my build as well
sorry dude i was gonna come ova but i past out at 4 lol ill try and roll over 2morrow bro ???
not really a big deal you can come whenever to use the drill

U didnt get the Output shaft out? When u say out do u mean out of the Case or of that one gear?
nope, i didn't get it out of the case.  i will make a thread shortly on it. 
just all bad luck at this point.  whatever is the worst that can happen will

Today I finally plan on getting my tranny cooler hooked up right and fabbing up a set of brackets for it. Yesterday after having a wisom tooth pulled I programmed the new key fob for my alarm.

Don't forget to drop your rear drive shaft before towing it, or you'll be looking for a new trans!

Just wanted to make sure a lot of people think as long as the tranny and t-case are in netral it will be ok but it still causes damage, since theres no fluid being pumped.

almost got trans finished up thanks to rob and his pops.  ran into a speed bump though.  the new trans case doesn't have the holes for the flywheel cover, not sure what i'm going to do here.  should finish it up and possibly fire tomorrow.  also need to install the bracket that goes to my 208 tcase and fill with fluid.  thats about it
just all bad luck at this point.  whatever is the worst that can happen will
