I had the ARP flywheel bolts bottom out in my new car and prevented the crank from turning. So I had to pull the trans and trim a bit off the bolts to get everything freed up. Not happy about having to do it in the car but what else was I going to do. Anyway I get the flywheel bolts in, clutch on, bellhousing back in, do the 100lb transmission push up and I get the splines engaged but after wrestling with it for 45 minutes on my back I decided to walk away. Erik cam over today and with him pushing in the clutch pedal, I had the trans slid all the way in in about 30 seconds. He stayed a while and installed the shifter and the trans tunnel back on before he left. The forum members are just great.
