[Healeys] Re-installing Tranny?

     I have read a lot of feedback through out the last decade on this 
routine.  After the major expense of redoing the trany it makes sense to 
reinstall it the right way.   Pull the engine too .   Whats another couple
of weeks down time in order to get the thing lined up right.   You need a 
good cherry picker, ($150.) and a leveler to do it right.   While the engine 
is out you can tidy up the rest of the compartment.

Lining up the trany input shaft has to be a hellashias deal when the engine 
is in the car.

Good Luck,   Mark
