I have one of those HF transmission jacks (FYI no way in hell would I load that thing to listed capacity. The lead screw struggles with the 99 pound boxster transaxle as it is.). I made a wooden cradle that picks up the fins in the bottom of the transmission to keep it from moving around.

One thing I found is that the pilot bearing in the flywheel is easily damaged by misalignment - more so than any other car I've done. Once damaged it makes slipping that pilot shaft into place that much harder.

The first time this beat me down I just stopped for the night. The next day it wiggled right in. With the HF trans jack and my wooden cradle it's a straight forward job.
