To start, remove the drive shaft from the rear end.( there should be four bolts holding it on). Remove the shifter completely. Next, remove all of the bolts from the bell housing that fasten the tranny to the rear of the engine.(you will need to remove the starter and oil filter to complete this). Then, place a jackstand underneath the transmission and remove the crossmember with the transmission mount. In most cases, the collector pipe for the exhaust will need to be unbolted from the headers. Before removing the tranny, make sure all wires and clutch connections are removed. At this point, you should be able to drop your transmission. - good luck, and be prepared to spend a few hours doing this.

After removing the inspection cover on the under side of the transmission, you will see the torque converter. Remove the three bolts from the converter to flex plate. You will have to rotate the engine to gain access to all the bolts. If you can not rotate engine, you may pull the converter with the engine, it will slide out of the transmission, but you will have to pull engine more forward upon removal. There are six bolts that hold the transmission to the engine that will need to be removed. After removing these bolts the engine should be ready to be removed from transmission. There are two alignment pins on the back of the engine about 3/4" long. Once you have the engine lifted a bit to take the weight, rock it back and forth a bit to free it from the transmission, engine should slip free of the transmission.
