Now for the engine moving forward part.....
Do I actually have to pull the front shaft, or is there enough room by unbolting the front diff and allow the slip yoke to bottom out?

If your just pulling the cover you shouldn’t have to take front diff loose . Take motor mount bolt out rear box bolt and bar it forward. Only has to move about a inch to clear the cover .

You figure theres enough slip in the slip yoke, to move the engine enough to remove the tranny?

I took the bolts out of the diff, removed the yoke bolt and pulled it out of the diff. But I’ve read on here about someone doing it without unhooking the yoke. I’m not sure though and it’s not much more work at that point.

Yeah I didn’t realize you was removing the box. I thought you was just moving it forward enough to pull side cover. You will need a lot more than the slip joint to revive the box from the engine . Sorry didn’t realize what you was wanting to do . Getting old dazed and confused !!

No no. That's what I originally wanted to try, however when I discovered that the studs holding the tranny to the engine would have to move 1.5", i reluctantly changed my stance and decided to remove the box completely.
Some nut bar on here said you can have it out in 2 hours.... ya right.

If the right side studs weren't there, I'd totally try to take the right side cover off

Ok. Front and rear drive shafts off.
Engine / tranny unbolted. Exhaust off.
Secondary clutch and outer primary removed.
Waiting for my clutch puller to arrive.
All that's left is yank inner from crank, remove inner belt cover, unbolt 2 remaining studs holding tranny to engine, slide engine forward and remove tranny....

Not yet. I need to wait until my puller gets here.
However, another question:
The long bolt sticking out of the secondary shaft ( Tranny input ) Is this bolt, left handed thread? I need to remove this before pulling the tranny from the unit.

And if it’s not been removed before . It’s probably got a large dose of loctite on it. May need to heat the stud to liquefy the loctite. If double nut doesn’t work .

There she is boys. Broken spring as predicted.
FYI the passenger side cover will come off on it's own and you can change the parts as needed through the pass side.

Worst part of the whole job was the front diff..... unbolting that c#ck sucker, in order to remove the front drive shaft.
Other than that... a breeze...
