On a hoist use a trans. jack for support if you have one. Worth while investment if you don't have one. Just took a oil pan off a 10 Mitchell that I thought was Alum. but discovered when it came down on my chest it was cast iron! Put it back on with the floor jack and cradle. Easy peasy

I just left the freewheeling unit attached to the transmission on my 1932 8-100A. I then slid the unit back and removed the whole unit through the top. I strongly recommend a second person under the car to assist or the re-installation can be a real bear.

Thanks everyone for your help. we have the car on a lift and have a transmission jack. Things seemed very close to not fitting (clearance) and before we got "rammy" ( I know that's not a word) I would ask for advice.

I can only imagine how miserable it must have been to be an independent shop mechanic back during that era.

And, an Auburn is a pretty straight forward car - try a RR PI or a 1931 Cadillac when you need transmission work and it would have been more like the backyard mechanic meets Lockheed SR-71 Blackhawk, Concorde, or Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II
