My friend in Upstate NY has a 635 which he is breaking, well it is breaking itself from rust. Any advice on getting the trans off? It currently sits on a car transporter trailer which has 2 sections for the wheels and nothing between, it won’t roll.
Is it best to split it at the bell housing to engine or trans to bell housing?
Any suggestions to stop the engine rocking when I disconnect the trans mount? If I put large blocks of wood to reach the ground the trailer will never move again.
Is th connection for the gear linkage control straight forward enough?
Sorry for the basic questions but my time with the car will be limited and I don’t know my way around my friends tools.

It's been my practice to split the tranny from the bellhousing. Once that is done you will have much better access to the bell housing bolts.

Thanks for your help Mike and Marcos.
The car is being scrapped and the trans going back to the UK. Diff is tbc and I have no idea about the engine condition, will need a rebuild for sure.
