    Not sure about 40's but in 60's you just have to buy/rent a tranny jack, and pull the carpet back enough to let you remove the "hump" or whatever you wanna call the acess pannel, and pull a few things off from the top, then lower it on down, look in the haynes manual if you have one, i thought it was pretty good at discribing it

    Move heater, pull passenger seat, slide/move fuel tank, remove tunnel cover

    I used to bench press the FJ40 4-speed and t-case into place, but I tend to get a bit stubborn with those things. I've used a normal floor jack and a web-ratchet too.

    Ahh, the good old days, I too used to bench press them in and out. Now I have $30,000 worth of titanium in my back and this month is my 4th year aniversary since the injury and in February will be three years off of work. Use a jack and have somebody help you.

    77 FJ-40 "bare mimimum" -

    Transmission shifter, Transfer Case shifter, rear drive shaft, emergency brake, transfer case.

    Find some bolts that are the same thread pattern - but about 6 inches long and replace the transmission bolts with these one at a time. Slide transmission aft to free transmission shaft, support the transmission from below, remove the "slider bolts" then angle the transmission down in back to clear the frame.

    Do the reverse to install. Probably about a 3 hour job the first time you try it. 2 with experience.
