Randy and I went to town today on the tranny, took everything apart, and then right when it came to actually pulling the tranny out... it wouldn't come out.

It made no sense, we did everything. Randy said it seems like the flywheel is stuck to something.

Didn't Sama curse a blue streak over one bolt at the very top of his tranny when he swapped last summer?

You'll get it Frank, you've come this far. If there's anything i've learned with cars it's that it's always something, don't sweat it.

No worries Frank, I can only imagine trying to bleed the air out on one of these cooling systems when filling it for the first time. It'll take a good few bleeds. Worst case scenario, I'll be there to give you a hand with it in just a couple of days.
