Now that the transmission was lowered, there wasn't enough room to simply roll it out so I man handled the transmission off the jack on to the ground and simply slid it out. Minimal mess and the shop-vac really comes in handy to clean up all the dirt that falls on the ground.

- My Datsun 510 is a work in progress. I was into Datsun's the day after I was born and this was the car literally rode in. So my interest in cars recently came about when I saw our family's old 510 rusting in a field for the past 25 years, until 2009 when I decided to take it on as my restoration project. Thought I'd start this blog about just different stuff that interests me (not just cars but hobbies too). This car is not for sale nor will it ever be for sale. *If your car is featured here against your wishes or you see incorrect information, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org , and I will make any necessary changes. Have fun viewing. I am not affiliated with any sponsors, company, or body shop. I'm just a dude that likes Datsuns.

Transmission Removal - Car On Jack Stands.
So thanks to my friend for lending me a breaker bar and a transmission jack/hoist. Wow that thing worked pretty awesome. It worked great with my socket wrench. Now that the transmission crossmember was removed (4 bolts and 2 smaller bolts near the center to hold the transmission in place), I used the jack to lower the transmission.
