Good luck! The y pipe is right in your way

Bolts to drop the t case

Use a transmission jack if one is avail
 






do you think I can slide it back 4-5 inches with Y pipe installed
 






Maybe!

The later
Model y pipes are slightly different then the earlier ones… they have cat converters in them

I do know I can barely get the transmssion pan out of there with the y pipe in place but it does come out. Things are pretty tight in there. Getting the auto trans back and over the y pipe is very difficult… which is why we just drop the exhaust

If it was my project I would just drop the exhaust it makes life so much easier

Its been awhile since last post .. You were right about the exhaust . started in Jan . pulled the trans and transfer case together , did rear guide then the front chains and guides
. the rear guide was cracked but the front was good , did it any way .Took off balance shaft chain, This was my first time pulling tranny and transfer case together here are some pics .
also used a hex die to chase threads on exhaust flange
