Thanks all,
I have also done this twice before with a friend. I was just hoping there was
a magic easy way for one person.

I won't be pulling the motor and working on the engine compartment at this
time. I don't want the engine compartment to look better than the rest of the
car! The motor is a solid runner with few leaks. I plan to drive it as is for
several more years until my stocks rebound. (Har har) It will be awhile. I
also have a restored MGA, a daughter, a driver E-Type, a wife, and two new
Welsh Corgis that continually need my devotion and dough.

Was the alignment tool for the clutch or to help you roll the tranny into
place? If for the tranny where did it come from and what was it shaped like?
"I recall renting an alignment tool, and then bolting the transmission back
in place--all by myself from inside the car. I recall how easy it was."

I am having my yet to ever be used Bill Bolton lightened flywheel balanced
finally and ready for install when the tranny issue is sorted.
