We are trying to swap out a burnt out 1997 Escort Engine with a fresh 10k mile one. We failed to realize that you had to take the tranny out with the engine. No big deal, or so we thought. We're having issues removing the driveaxles. Any ideas? Also what's the best way to oust that little bevel in the driveaxle nuts? We don't have any air tools, we have an electric impact wrench though. :? Any info would be greatly appreciated..

you dont have to remove the tranny, remove the harmonic balancer, then the belt tensoner and there sould be enough room, make sure the torque converter, is loose from the fly wheel to. and you will need to work with the ac hose. but you do not have to take the tranny out. UNLESS you have a manual.
