OTHER THAN JUST MAN HANDLING IT

GRAB YOU A FEW BOLTS THE SAME SIZE AS THE ONES YOU ARE INSTALLING

TRY TO GET THEM A FEW INCHES LONGER

CHOP THE HEADS OFF AND SORTA GRIND THE CHOPPED END A LITTLE TAPERED (NEED NOT BE A BULLET SHAPE, JUST SOMETHING THAT WILL EZily JUMP INTO A HOLE

NOW YOU HAVE A THREADED STUD ON ONE END AND A SLICK SHOULDER ON THE OTHER

INSTALL THEM IN VARIOUS HOLES

SHOVE THE TRANNY ON

INSTALL THE ORIGINAL BOLTS IN THE OTHER HOLE (MAYBE NOT TIGHT YET)

REMOVE YOUR CJ MEDEVAC-O-MATIC SLICK ALIGNMENT STUDS (PLIERS MAY BE NECESSARY)

INSTALL THE REMAINING BOLTS

FINISH YOUR JOB CORRECTLY

LET ME KNOW HOW IT'S GOING AS YOU PROGRESS

I DO ANYTHING TO MAKE A JOB EZer---IMPRESSES FOLKS TOO!

The transmission must be aligned correctly and flush with engine block before you attempt to tighten the bolts. Failure to do so can result in damages.

Is this a manual or automatic transmission?

Your message was very helpful to me I grab a couple of bolts and inches longer than the original bolts and the transmission fell into place, thanks for your help.
