    I am now 3 6-hour days into pulling the transmission out of my M756A2, and cannot seem to budge the transmission. I of course have removed all of the bolts that I can find holding it to the engine, as well as all of the linkage, and the transfer case.

    I have the transmission rapped with chain and a come-along attached to a tow strap which is rapped tightly around my hard top. Also, does anyone know how heavy the deuce transmission is?

    I have read through every thread here that I can find on the subject, as well as downloaded every TM on the deuce here, and have not found a single discussion in those TMs regarding removing the transmission. So, it would be very nice if someone could direct me to a detailed description of pulling the transmission out of a deuce. Thanks folks, you have all been great guiding me through the other repairs that I have implemented on my deuce.

    TM9-2320-209-34-2-1, chapter 8 has transmission removal. If everything is disconnected, I'd think either your input shaft is stuck in the pilot bushing or you otherwise have too much bind from how you're lifting it.
    Dreams is all some folks got. The rest of us, have a deuce and a half.

    What Big Z said. I pulled a 460 engine off a ZF5 transmission last week and it was stuck bad. I have a engine cherry picker and a transmission jack with 4 way adjustment. I ended up putting in bolt/studs so I could measure the gap between it at different spots to make sure I didn't have it in a bind. Doesn't help that it was in the forest sitting for 7 years.

    Ive found it helps tremendously to remove the top of the trans to get it in and out.
    Don't worry about the size difference

    I have seen it installed and in service - heavy, bulky, not really user friendly. By the time you have it ready to work you would be halfway done with much more simpler methods.

    i always modify my engine hoists with a winch or come a long for either a tilting device or extra grab point (this is version 3.0 and would be perfect if the folding hoist wasn't such a floppy POS, the legs will be welded solid when i don't need it to be easily stowed) but it also makes it a crane, which worked well when i swapped transfer cases, i suspect it would work for the tranny too

    Since I didn't see it listed, have you tried the rapping on wood blocks placed against trans with a dead-blow hammer method? As in trying to tap it loose/out?
