I'm not sure what this "spreading of the tunnel" is. But I've removed my OD 
transmission (from the 71 BGT) several times with the engine in place. In 
fact, I'm in the process of doing so again this week.

Its a very tight fit. And to make it easier, I have a 1" hole bored in the 
transmission bell housing that allows me to unbolt the pressure plate from 
the flywheel before removing the transmission. All I have to do is pull the 
transmission back far enough to pull the shaft from the pilot bushing, and 
then I can pull it out.

67 BGT
71 BGT
