Yea. It's around 10* I think it's actually a little more. Those pilot bearings can be a pain. I used the grease trick the first time. That took a while. But worked. Tried it the second time. Said screw it and got the tool from AZ. Had to modify the tool a bit to get it to work

Shouldn't be. I just put mine in yesterday. Fought all day saturday trying to get it in using rachet straps and brute force, sunday I sucked it up nd bought a transmission jack, had it in under 30 min. I did have to jack up the motor a little to get to all line up but it went in with just a little wiggling. The way i finally got my angle right was to put the bolts in each side of the tranny and nudge them up against the block, then make adjustments until the bolts looked level with the holes in the bolck. Also make sure the tranny is in gear so you can move the output shaft to get the input shaft to line up with the clutch

If you are a mechanical neophyte and have to repetitively intone the mantra of "lefty loosey," are a mouth breather and only own a hammer, it will be more of a challenge. [/QUOTE]
