To help with my recent gearbox removal I made up a simple leaver that worked like a charm and made the job much less stressful. The Z shaped bracket was two pieces of 1"x1"x1/8" angle welded together and bolted to the firewall the lever is inch by inch square tube 45 inches long with a 1/4 x inch extension on one end loosely bolted to the top of the Z. The lifting bracket is bolted to the top of the box at the balance point making it easy to manoeuvre forward or back. I am not planning on making a habit of removing the box but now the hardest part is lifting it in and out of the passenger door the actual fitting was a breeze.
