STage 3 clutch N 11Lb flywheel

Ok to make a long story short I spun a rod bearing in my 240 so since it was on the disabled list for a while I tore my tranny out to install my 11lb flywheel and stage 3 clutch I purchased.Well I got my rod bearings in and motors back together and new flywheel clutch and pressure plate are all bolted up.....the hard part is getting the tranny back on the motor when your working on the ground...So me and my brother tried for about an hour and it started to rain.does any one have any better advice on how to get the tranny on easy...since were working on jack stands.Any advice will help im bout to burn this car to the ground...well i could never do that I love nissans exp 240's with a passion that would be like murdering a family member..Please help.

So just work with it Yea it is a pain but Is it easy to use two jacks to jack the tranny? one in the front one in the back or use one jack in the middle...its just a ***** its the hardest part I have endured yet on the whole project I been doing to it.

Honestly those jacks assuming is a short base like 2",I have that one and the other 4"+ lifts the trans fine.
Some advice you need the starter part of the bellhousing to be facing downwards then when u jack it up you need to spin the trans. I've done a few transmission drops, I usually end up bench pressing it up..up and in and then have a friend slap in xmember.
Then when there is a 1" gap. use the starter bolts+washers(2 sides of engine) to help mate then engine. Then use the specific bolts and remove starter bolts to proper location.

listen this is wut u do unbolt the back motormounts with a jack under the motor an u let the back of the motor down with the jack until the bellhousing will clear the tranny tunnel of the car and will line up to the back of the motor or u could jus un bolt the front motoe mounts and jack the front of the motor up an this will angle the motor enought to bolt the tranny on
