Goodluck;

Huh, I just assumed they would work for a camaro also. Learn something every day. Why doesn't it work for camaros?

Hey rubberman. I had to pull the tranny from my 82 Z28 (exact same body style). Best advice i can give is get 4 sturdy jack stands that can keep the car about 2 foot off the ground. then you can use a reagular jack or a tranny jack to lower the transmission down. Also i'll warn u that the transmission lines can be a major b**ch to get back on. But as long as you take your time its not real dificult.

Troy is right. Removing the engine mount bolts will actually cause you more work, not less. You are also likely to have problems with damage to the fan shroud, distributor, and maybe other things from the engine leaning that far back. The engine will drop back far enough without the mount bolts loose. They will also help steady the engine for re-assembly.

Removing the motor mount bolts isn't needed, besides the exhaust is the limiting factor as far as how far it will tilt. Loosen the exhaust at the manifolds, and them motor mounts will flex more than enough but you don't have to do that either.

It's really a no brainer if you use common sense and think your way through it. In other words "Ain't nothin' to'it but to do'it"

Well lets not forget to disconnect the kick down cable ie t/v cable from carb or fuel injection, then you can easyly unhook at trans case.In order jack up car, use good stands or lift (dont want a ride to the hospital)
drive shaft out,
torq converters screws
support trans remove cross member and rear torq bar support
lower trans on jack
remove bell housing to engine screws, cable screw remove cable,
lower trans a bit take off cooler lines lets trans down slowly
