Automatic Transmission holding fixtures

This fixture has pegs that insert into the dowel pin holes to hold the trans. This is used for quick service work inside case or can be used for complete build. Takes 2 guys to lift trans off the stand

This is a scooter lift from handicap van. 12 volt power. It is attached to the work bench to lift trans up to the bench or off the bench. This saves your back from abuse.

Make sure the bench is heavy enough or bolted to the floor so the bench is stable enough for the weight of the transmission

Common use of fixture to hold trans at a bench. This rotates 360 degrees.

Fixture has attachments to hold various types of RWD trans cases

Thanks for posting those! The first looks pretty easy to make, I actually made the third device but mine goes on an engine stand post. What's the weight limit on the lift's hoist?

I have no idea of the electric hoist weight limit. No tag on it. The scooter it was used on was not a real small scooter. The scooter may be 175 - 200 pounds? I knew the fellow that used the lift in his van.

Largest trans I have lifted so far is a 700r4 since I installed the lift 1 month ago.

Neat idea but the base looks to small for the height of the fixture, and those verticals need some kind of brace to the base.

I have used this design stand for decades , no problems. Very stable... sure, you can knock it over if you try hard enough. We have about 8 of these stands at work

no simpler than a transmission on a plastic bucket with a flexplate on top of the bucket. Bucket will catch oil if the trans has been in use.

Very cool, Crosley. On the last one, maybe you could paint the bucket flat black and call it a rat stand? In all seriousness though, they're very inventive. Which of these do you find yourself using the most?

In the photo of the powerglide trans hanging on the stand.... just off left out of the picture is a 727 trans case sitting. The 727 case is still used for C6 and C4 trans

I have worked for Hughes Performance in Phx AZ since 1999. I currently build our ultra high horse power XP4 powerglide and the XP5 powerglide with lockup converter. These are rated for 2000 to 3500 horsepower.

automatic transmission holding fixture

I use Snap on holding fixtures.
one works very well on most rear wheel drive units including E4oD types.
The other works on a lot of front wheel drive units.

Cant understand builders not having them.

A quick demo on how I remove a trans off the holding fixture at my home shop where I work alone. Lift table is Harbor Freight unit, rated at 1,000 pounds.

I strongly suggest folks get help with heavy items or use some form of equipment for lifting. I can no longer lift these transmissions by myself due to yrs of abuse on my body by lifting heavy weight

The trans holding fixture I built from scrap metal i picked up here n there. It is the common horseshoe design

This t-350 is just a fresh test mule. I have some valve body ideas to test out and needed a mule for that.

We have several of those harborfreight lift tables at work. Im a 150pd wuss with bad knees and back, and this thing makes moving a 110pd Muncie (incl wooden packing crate) a breeze. Additionally the larger casters make it easy to roll around. I like the bucket and flexplate idea as well

Edit: Here is a link to the table:

These were a very good deal @$90, sold like HotCakes, seller jacked the price up to $140 w/free S/H & hasn't sold one since. Actually not a bad price for the table Mount & Trans Holder at the higher price.
