I was installing a transmission on a Type II engine today and I came across a problem I was hoping someone on here might be able to help me with. I am having a problem tightening the 36mm sealing bolt onto the differential extension shaft.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to keep the extension shaft from spinning so that I can apply the 56 lb-ft needed to torque this bolt. I read that Telion had a similar problem and he seemed to solve this by placing the trans in Park. I too tried this and every other gear but I have had no luck....the diff keeps spinning. I am not sure what might be causing this as I am sure the trans is solid and I am fairly confident I installed it correctly. If anyone has any insight on this problem, I would greatly appreciate any input.

I've been in your shoes before, my friend. You only have two options:

1. Use an impact gun on it as it is now.
2. Install engine and transmission. Install both axles. Put both wheels on the ground (or have someone hold the brakes for you) , trans in park. Tighten the sealing nut with a ratchet.
