**********HELP , 201 tranny removal ******
 
I have searched and searched, no posts on this subject turn up. I would like to know how the topmost bolt on a diesel automatic transmission is to be removed. I have removed the cross member, the tranny does not hand down much.

HELP..

On some 201's you can try raising the trans (tilting the engine slightly forward) and get it from on top.
Other ones (assuming you have a hoist) you loosen the motor mounts and actually use a screw-jack and a block of wood and push UP on the front of the oil pan to get enough angle. make sure you put a few of the easier-to-get-to bolts back in before doing this of course. The general types of tools are a VERY long extension and flex socket (one in good shape so it doesn't hang down loosely) or a good flexible adapter and socket. You can use either 3/8 drive with a 1/2 adapter, or go with 1/2" all the way if you have it. We're talking in excess of 3 feet of extension here, go right over the top of the whole tranny.
The reason I say use a 3/8" with a 1/2" adapter is you usually are going to need a longer ratchet or breaker bar to loosen it.
Sometimes it's extra-hard to get that top one as there will be a sheetmetal bracket under the bolt head, and you're lucky if you can SEE the head of the bolt, sometimes you're going by FEEL.
