i have a 78 tahiti with the 3 point mount, where the bellhousing sits on my panther pump... ive tried bolting up the driveline and THEN dropping it in but it wouldnt slide onto the spline... i tried wiggling it like crazy, etc.
unbolted the driveline and put it onto the pump, then dropped the motor in... now i have like a 2"x4" window to get the bolts in... impossible. my hands look like hell. finally i got tired and drilled some holes and opened up the window a little bigger for my hands to fit. still no luck.
how in the hell are u guys dropping in your motors and hooking up the driveline? im about 2 seconds away from buying a plate/stringer mount and getting rid of that stupid 3 point.
