I don't like the idea of the spacers....If you do it that way,most of the trans case is away from the motor.And when you go to put the crossmember in,you have to raise the weight of the trans and the back half of the motor up to get the crossmember in.I would be concerned that the trans bell might[strong emphisis on might] break.So,here's what I would do if i felt better having the trans in during break-in.Bolt the trans to the motor the conventional way. Leave the torque converter in the box it came in. When your happy with the motor,pull the trans,and proceed with the proper installation.Whaddy ya think?
