Installing gearbox and torque tube.

This is fairly straight-forward. I bolted the torque tube to the gearbox, attached the shifter mechanism and install both as one unit.

Then slid the box under the car and lifted it up into place. Then tied it up with my mod_seatbelt & supported the bell-housing end with blocks of wood.

The gear stick should come up in the right spot.
