I need to know WHY i'm being told to disconnect the entire steering gear housing to remove the A3040E tranny from my mx83. I removed the w58 without doing it but will it hurt anything if I just drop the tranny without disconnecting the tie rod ends and steering gear housing? I'm new yes! who cares i can't find an answer for this question anywhere.

The engine will hut/bend the power steering hard lines on the rack as you tilt it back. You can bend them back but rusty 25 year old metal lines do sometimes break when you do that. The "right" way is to move them and the rack out of the way but if you want to live dangerously...

BTW please don't post the same thing multiple places.
