yes you can- but its easier IMO to take it out... bolting it up in the car sucks. its really up to you though.

thanks again sol , i only was thinking of this because i am having such a hard time getting the wheel hub nut off to remove the axles, i also want to use the tranny thats on the engine so i just thought it would be easier. i will have an engine hoist if that matters. damn bolts.

it makes it really easy if u stick a screw driver in the rotor slots u dont even have to bend the stopper up just get a long ratchet and stand on it they'll come rite off

you dont need to take the hub off the axle... just unbolt the hub from the (?????arm... its 2 bolts on the part that connects to the botom of the hub) and pull... it will come out of the tranny and then you just pull the engine... this is how i did it when i needed to swap blocks... pull the tranny with the engine.... put it back together outside the car and drop it all back in... far easier than trying to get the tranny off and back on the block inside the car
