Default Re: Duratec pinging like crazy...

GSF.. check HF for a trans jack. They had one in the $50-60 range that was operated with a 1/2" drive ratchet. Some would use an impact wrench, but I don't think it will stand the force. Slow and easy... I used it for a A4LD in an 4.0 Aerostar, and it worked pretty well. I did have to 'lean' the transmission to even out the load on the scissors. If I had used the impact, I would not have known one side was binding, FWIW.
I have used floor jacks, but you need two things: 1)reach and 2)extra hands to hold the trans onto the support.
