Thanks. It was very tight! The first tool proved not to be up to the task. I finally had success with a 3/4" drive 1 1/4" socket that I cut with a die grinder. It made for a very good fit in the slots of the flange nut. A 3/4" breaker bar and 3 feet of pipe rovided the needed torque. We had to bolt a 2x6 to the bellhousing in order to secure the transmission! A piece of cake once the nut was loose :-)
