Default 86.5 auto transmission removal HELP!!!

I am new to this forum but had this supra for 5 years it died on me 2 years ago and i just got a transmission to replace the bad one. I started to removal the old transmission i took out 2 hard line that was attached to the transmission, ?the shift linkage? (the 2 inch lever on the transmission that changes gear), 3 electrical connector, the metal cable and 7 bellhousing bolts. i am having trouble with the last bolt that hold the engine and the transmission together. it the one below the intake manifold and above the firewall. i dont want to buy the complete manuel to the car because im going to Texas Aircheck the car so please any diagrams and experience in transmission removal and installtion? anything would be very helpful thank you

Well, be glad there are a few places on line that have the entire Toyota Service book for the Supra. Here is one, it should have all the info you need, good luck!!

Is there any chance that you could get a few pictures of the problem bolt, that might help with giving advice.

many people use a bunch of extensions with a universal joint adapter and get to them from under the car

That is exactly how I got my manual transmission unbolted. But it was one swivel and a 36" extension. Thank god for Sears Craftsman. Also, for automatics, I suggest you remove the flywheel cover and unbolt the torque converter from the flywheel, and remove it with the transmission.

Question And Then?

Once you've gotten the transmission out how do you get it back in? It's pretty heavy and we're having a hard time getting it up in place, holding it and bolting it back on.
