Well, as many do .... I'm back again for free advice.
A year or 2 ago I was having problems with the transmission locking up the drive tran - in F & R at the same time I think. Washerman ( on this forum) helped me through that, to get the 8N going again. Now of course, I didn't get to it and fix the cause of that. Now it has locked up again and is really locked. So, Now I will try to fix the problem. I have it blocked to separate at the rear of transmission (T). Will I need to completely remove the transmission housing? or can I do repairs to the T. without splitting it from the motor?
The bottom of the T. has a bad split in the case, that I am hoping to get repaired ????? ?
Main Q, is am I splitting it in the right place? , and do I roll the rear wheel section back to make the split ?

You gonna haveta remove the engine to work on the trans. I split at the engine roll the tractor back and remove the trans. Block yer axles so the engine does not try and tilt over. I have a truck transmission jack and it makes the job a lot easier. I leave the trans on the jack for service.

Thanks for the reply Hobo.
I am finally at the point of attempting the split.
Having the right tools(jack) for the job - would be nice. However, the whole drive train is locked up and getting it into the shop is not even possible. So this is one of those outside block up jobs. With the rear wheels locked as they are, even with the clutch depressed, ..what are the odds that I could get away with moving the engine and front wheels forward. Blocked under the oil pan and slide it forward. Will the tires want to turn and flip the engine ???

You kin do it that way block the front axle were it piviots on the front support and keep the wheels straigt some help move'in it at this time would come in handy
