t176 weight?

i just manhandled the d300 out but i knew it was supposed to weigh around 90lbs.
i'm about to drop the t176/bellhousing. how much does that bad boy weigh? any tips on how to lower it down?

The 300 weighs more than the 176. Been a while since I've had mine out but I always just lay under the Jeep, wiggle it out with my arms, lower it onto my chest and then roll to one side. I reverse the order for putting it back in.. basically bench pressing it into place.

Novak says T-176 weighs 110 lbs but I don't agree, although I haven't weighed one it felt like about 65 lbs and the bellhousing is very light, maybe 6 lbs.

I just removed mine 2 days ago, t176 was much lighter than the 300, I removed the trans and bellhousing separately. Only 4 bolts holding the 2 together.

I can't find pressure plate torque specific to a 1984 but my Haynes says model years 1972 to 1981 is 40 ft lbs.
