    Local Astra-Sport bods (Southampton/Pompey area) HELP!!!

    Had a bit of a disaster tonight trying to change the gearbox on my Astra.

    After all seeming to go swimmingly well, at the point of gearbox insertion, the engine fell off the jack it was supported on. Anyway, after 3 hours of swearing, managed to get it back on the jack where it's kinda sitting now.

    Have tried in vain to get the gearbox to mount up to the block, but it's just too heavy. The F25 weights a ton.

    I am just wondering if anyone could give me a hand for a few hours just to get the gearbox mated up. Everything else I can do myself.

    Really need some help urgently as the weather is set to be bad on Saturday. I want to get the car finished by Friday night.

    So can anyone help me out tomorrow night? Looking for a couple of bods to steady the gearbox while me and a friend locate it to the block.

    NRJ?? Anyone? Please, please, please. :!:

    Cheers in advance.

    Hya,

    I live in Southampton too. (Bitterne Park). But my car is in Titchefield (Nr Sedgensworth). I'm working on it at a friend's place as he has a nice amount of hard standing.

    Cheers everyone else.
