I woulda gotten you a transmission jack if I'd known you were gonna need one!
Next time I'm at HF I may just grab one for the hell of it.

I dunno if there's a weight difference between the 643 and the 3060. I've not crawled under a 3060. The 643 looks damn heavy. Nice flat bottom and I have a shop jack. Dragging the shop jack thru the dirt/rocks at the RV lot would make bench pressing the tranny in place look easy in comparison. Sheet of plywood would be worth more than its weight in gold at that point.

I have a HF trans jack and used it.. in fact if you think you might need a platform jack like that i can bring it down on my next trip to florida so you can use it.. it was definitely a HUGE lifesaver. that and the 20 ton bottle jacks.. holy crap learning about those at your roof raise was the best thing.. amazing thing is those cheapie jacks held pressure for over a week under my bus

EC actually never count on any one piece of gear.. even when I use jackstands. Always in pairs or leave the jack at slight pressure as well..

Wowsers 643 is a heavy bastard. That thing must be built for a tank! And it still just hangs off the bell no cross member?

I think the MT643 needs a cross member, if it goes in my bus it will get one somehow
