Pulling motor/ tranny 66 C10

Hi Guys,
I'm in the process of pulling my 283 out of my 66 C10.

I was wondering if it's possible to pull the motor and manual tranny out together? I was trying to pull them out together and had problems with the tranny hitting the tranny mount, and then when I jacked up the tranny to clear the mount the top of the tranny was sticking up to far inside the cab to pull it out.

I have the engine puller chained to the front driveside intake manifold and then the rear passenger side intake manifold bolts. do I just need to adjust were I have my puller or do I need to seperate the two parts?

I will be installing an automatic back into the truck, so I will have to grind out the tranny mount anyways I was just hoping to do this with everything out, would it just be easy to grind out the tranny mount and then pull everything out?
Thanks so much in advance for your help.
Thom

if you pull the trans mount you should be able to get enough room to get everything out in one piece.

Your crossmember should be bolted in there. You should be able to remove it too. I could be wrong, but I have never seen a GM that the crossmember was welded in.

That's the only way to do it..It's so much faster bolting everything up before you install an engine, (motor and trans anyways) and the busted knuckle factor goes way down..If I can stuff a 351W w/ a C-6 bolted to it in a mustang no prob, I dont think youll have much trouble..you might have to jack the front end up some and a cherry picker (engine hoist) is a must...

Thanks guys,
The crossmeber isn't weld in, for what ever reason chevy pop riveted the crossmembers in in those days and the only way to remove them is to grind off all the rivets. I have to do this anyways to set up the new crossmember for the automatic I'm putting in I was just trying to wait until everything was out of the truck.
