Yeah, I did it. Why not? Doesn't cost anything other than two dots with a sharpie.

Balance? Wear patterns?

haha I pulled the motor to do the clutch, but that was because I wanted to take the oil pan off to drill and tap it for the turbo. Pulling the motor is no big deal. . . Altho this is comming from someone who once pulled his motor almost all the way out in the 240sx to replace a leaking coolant hose behind the head.

Well i decided to just drop the tranny. Got it out by myself in 3 hours from start to rolling it out from under the car. Would of been 2 1/2 but the ******* 17mm bolt under the thermostat on the passanger side took me seriously 30 mins to unscrew. I suprised myself. Sleep time!

I can have the motor out of the car in around 2 hours. I dropped a tranny this week and it was 3 hours out, 3 hours in.

I hate dropping trannies. **** re-aligning that **** while benchpressing it into place.

I operate the harbor freight jack (holding trans) handle with my leg while I jostle the tranny. Works ok and I've never dropped one on my head.

Got that bitch back in. Replaced the rear main seal. Took me about 4 hours. Just a few bolts in there right now i need sleep. Gotta work early. Tomorrow ill finish the trans and either start on the roll bar or finishing up my WI install. Me and my girl wrestled around with the tranny for 2 hours before realizing the clutch lines were preventing mating Finally i just started screwing bolts in and asked her to turn the crank at the same time. Sure enough the tail end of the tranny was turning

Another good tip to tranny mating is to get it up there, support it, then install the shifter and put it in 5th gear. Spin the driveshaft a little bit if you encounter a LOT of resistance, to try and mesh up the splines.

^ awesome

I don't recall ever having a problem getting the trans back in per aligning the splines. One thing that helps is to prop the front of the engine using a board against the rad support to keep the rear pointing downward.

I read in the shop manual to mark the flanges where the driveshaft connects to the diff. It didn't make too much sense to me, its just a rotating assembly, but if Mazda says so... That's what happens when you RTFM.

Edit: I should have been more clear where that came from. It does sound like BS.
