Stall converter install - easy? Or leave it to the experts...

Hi all,

Have just bought a TCI stall for a TH350. How hard are they to install? Is it something I can do myself (have installed cam, done some head work, installed new shifter etc, so am not entirely unskilled). Or it is best to take it to a shop to have installed. Looking at the instructions that came with it, it doesn't *appear* too difficult, but I'd love opinions on this.

Thanks,
Andrew

Its a pretty easy install, hardest part is maneuvering tranny back and forth.

Rent a transmission jack. They don't cost much to rent and sure make the job easier. Tranny's are heavy and can hurt you if you're not careful. Pretty straight foward removal and installation. Let us know how it goes.

Thanks for that info guys. I have a trolley jack, but might look into the transmission jack, if I can find one. Will definitely let you know how it goes when I attempt it. Cheers.
