The only part that is frustrating is the two 10mm bolts on the top of the trans holding the shift cable. You have to slightly lower the trans to get your hand up there to access the bolts. Not too bad getting them off, but can be a PIA putting them back on.I went ahead and pulled the trans, it's currently on a pallet. Notable observations were that the fluid looked pretty dirty but didn't smell burnt, very light "clutch dust" particles could be seen in the oil as it swirled into my container, much like a wet clutch on a motorcycle. And the fluid level was not one bit over serviced. I'm convinced now that old dirty oil and filters with the possibility of being underserviced were causing my erratic line pressure. Will post logs and tune results after I get it back from Shep. Also, for anyone considering DIY trans removal, its MUCH easier/faster than the engine. It was a pleasant surprise after reading some of the horror stories.
