You can lower it in like that yeah. The last pushrod drop in I did was a fully dressed motor on the stand, hooked it to the hoist and then bolted the trans to it while it was hanging there and dropped it all in as 1 piece. **** doing the trans with it under the car, I have 0 idea why ppl don't always pull it as 1 piece. Its so easy to yank the whole thing out vs unbolting it and bracing the trans and then pulling out just the motor.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
