This had to be just plain dumb luck, but the last time I was all set
to snug the tranny back up to my engine I couldn't find my darned
alignment tool! So I used the good old Mark I eyeball and a
screwdriver to line up the clutch splines. Darned if it didn't snick
right into place on the first try - easier than the couple times I
have done it with the tool! Bet I couldn't do it that way again so
easily in a million years.
I still say that it is easier to take the engine and transmission out
of a Spitfire as a unit rather than drag the heavy, greasy thing out
through the cockpit.
