Default U Joint replacement Engine Out

We have pulled the engine and it is at a re-builder.

We would like to replace the U Joint. The transmission is still in the car.
Has anyone unbolted and moved the tranny forward then removed joint or do we have to pull the Rear end out?

Thanks!

Why not just pull the transmission? Easy to do with the engine out. Much easier to work on a bench. May also be prudent to change the transmission bearings at the same time.

Yep, just need to unbolt the U Joint enclosure. Removing the shift tower would also make handling a little easier.

Also the brake and clutch pedals. Just did the same thing. I’m putting it back as a single assembly. Engine and tranny bolted together.
