me (6'2" and 235 lbs) and a friend (6'4" 275 lbs) grunted, sweat, cussed, jimmied, wiggled, pushed, pulled, and finally just got one of those 18mm (i think thats what they are) at the top of the case started. then once we got a few rotations we just moved it around some more and more and more until we got it to keep torquing down and it pulled everything right into place. i put the jack on the top of a floor jack and laid under the car, which was on jackstands, and balanced the trans on the top of it. my friend stood over the car and reached down in the engine bay and did what he could from up there. it IS a pain in the ass, i will admit it, but not THAT bad. just man up haha naw but really, good luck with the install.
