TRANSMISSION REMOVAL

HAS ANYONE REMOVED THEIR HYDRAMATIC FROM A 53 CAPRI? I IMAGINE ALL CAPRI'S WOULD BE THE SAME.
I HAVE THE SHOP MANUALS AND THE TRANSMISSION SUPPLEMENT BUT THEY DON'T COVER REMOVING IT FROM THE CAR, ONLY TEARING IT DOWN AND REBUILDING IT ONCE IT'S OUT.
THE FRAMES LARGE "X" MEMBER IS RIGHT UNDER THE TRAN AND IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE ENOUGH ROOM TO SLIDE THE TRAN BACK FAR ENOUGH TO CLEAR THE ENGINE. THIS LOOKS SIMILAR TO 55-57 TBIRDS WHERE THE TRAN HAS TO COME OUT WITH THE ENGINE. THERE IS A METHOD TO DISASSEMBLE THE TBIRD TRAN UNDER THE CAR TO REMOVE IT WITHOUT REMOVING THE ENGINE AND I'M WONDERING IF THE SAME CAN BE DONE HERE.
THE SHOPS DON'T SHOW ANY PICTURES OF THE TAIL HOUSING AND OUTPUT SHAFT SO I KINDA WANT TO CONNECT WITH SOMEONE THAT HAS DONE IT BEFORE I ATTEMPT IT.
THANKS FOR ANY AND ALL HELP!

Welcome,
I found a couple of pictures and it ~still~ looks like you need a shoehorn or unfortunately, remove them together.

Re: TRANSMISSION REMOVAL

I guess I'll attempt to remove the tail under the car and see what happens. If you want I can post pictures of the process here. Sure hope I don't have to pull the engine...
