tilting motor

Hello everyone,
Thanks for all the knowledgeable reading. One question if you don't mind, I'm replacing the servo in my tranny and I don't want to take it out all the way. I have a 73 camaro small block w a 700 r. Can I remove the trans crossmember and lower the tail end of the tranny down without damaging my motor mounts. I know there is rubber in there and I'm worried about breaking the rubber. Maybe lower it about 5 inches so it is accessable.

Thanks Ron

Just keep a jack under the tranny. That way it doesn't fall to fast. You should be able to just get to it that way.

Have someone watch the distributor/firewall clearance when you are lowering the back of the tranny. In fact, you may want to remove it before removing the Xmember.

and leave the driveshaft in the back, or you will be wearing all the fluid.

If everything is still in the front of the engine watch the fan around the fan shroud depending where it sit or the top rad. hose so that it dosent do anything werid. If you have headers that are close to the wheel wells just keep an eye on them.
