Hello everybody--

I've been driving around for the past year or so with the original 
transmission and a rearend from a Nova, which has been OK.  I have a 350 
transmission sitting in the garage along with the flywheel and that donut 
thing that weighs too much.  I also have the support piece for holding up the 
back end of the trany.  I want to install this transmission without too much 
pain and effort ( I know, fat chance).

First of all, (for those of you who have done it) how did you keep the engine 
in line after taking off the bell housing?  When putting the transmission in, 
did you use a transmission jack or did you gather your friends and neighbors 
to help with the lifting.  What problems do I need to look out for?  Do I 
need an A/T cooler? Any other helpful tips will be appreciated.
