? Special tools needed to pull manual trans from 240D

I have never worked on the engine or transmission of my 300D. I am going to a junkyard which has several 240's. If I am truly lucky, one may have a manual. Will I need any special tools to remove the transmission and related components? I have metric sockets and extensions. Have pretty extensive "shade tree" mechanic experience. Just need to know what I may need beyond regular metric sockets and wrenches.

Thanks,

Wayne

Ditto on BHD's remarks. In fact, I pulled a 240D manual kit from a upullit last year and Mr cold chiesel was exactly what I needed to finish. One of the socket headed bolts rounded on the flywheel and I had to pullout the engine and whack it with a chiesel to get it to spin off.

With all that has been listed I would like to submit the following:

1. Two patient friends

2. Beer, lots of it.

If the friends are not patient to start with, hopefully after a few beers they will have improved.
