    Default Deuce Transmission Removal Crossbar

    I read a lot of posts on here about different ways of removing a deuce transmission, and liked the thought of a cross post from the dash to rear of cab, well while gathering parts for the transmission I thought I might try to come up with abetter mouse trap so to speak. I took a piece of 2 outer diameter pipe I had laying around cut it to length and welded a piece of angle iron on each end tolay on the cab. I have a hard top so I made it just fit between the center windshield post and the hard top, that makes it so it can’t move back and forth, angle iron won’t let it roll. Then I took a piece of steel and bent it around the pipe, took a 3” caster wheel and bolted it in the u saddle then drilled and put an I bolt in the center. I hooked a chain hoist to the I bolt to raise and lower it, and it rolls back and forth on the pipe. Total cost was 19.00 at lowes for a caster, steel, and an I bolt.

    Having the caster wheel will make it nice. I used my tractor boom with a chain hoisted attached to it. Work great until installing, had to use a pry bar to hold the tranny forward while trying to start the bolts.

    Here is How I did it, I used my Hi-lift jack and a chain fall from the back of the cab out the front window (see post #13). I have used the same method twice now and it worked great both times http://www.steelsoldiers.com/showthr...-thread!/page2

    You can also put a 4x4 across the cab sideways, resting on each door, but it makes it harder to work in there. Don't forget to use a load balancer if you have one (HF cheapie works great) so that you can tilt the tranny just right to insert it into the clutch.

    I may be wrong but it looks like you have a piece of aluminum tacked up on the back side. Be carefull of that if it comes loose, it may want to roll. If its steel my apologies.

    I put the pipe though the back and front window, rig a chain over the pipe, hook a come-e-long to the trans and another come-a-long from the back of the pipe to the chain, this pulls the trans back or rig off the other end to pull it in, real easy to pull or install a 5t trans, a deucs trans should be even easer

    That is a good idea. I generally start by putting a 4 x 8 plywood board down to create a surface to roll a trans jack on and it makes it a little nicer to lay on the ground. Removing the trans is the easy part.

    Yes I agree with you about the plywood, I used a 3'x2' 1/2" piece with a chain attached to it and used my tractor to drag it out.
