Re: Transmission supports on 1988 thomas safe t liner
So I just finished swapping the tranny on my '89 BlueBird yesterday. What a bitch, we even have a legit school bus garage to work out of and a tranny jack. So yeah I was surprised to realize that the only thing holding on my tranny was the bell housing bolts. Makes it kinda sketchy bolting it in, I was afraid that the trans was going to shift and bend some bolts. I have a 5.9 cummins with a allison AT 545. Lining up the flex plate and the torque converter took me 2 more days after we actually mounted the new trans. Make sure you line them up BEFORE fully connecting the trans to the bell housing. Glad it's done and never want to do it again. So far so good, shifts smooth and everything seems to be good.
