Undo the engine mounts and the trans mount, then the auto will angle down towards the floor and you will have more room to get the top bolts. The engine sits on the K Frame and holds it all up. At the end just jack it back into position and bolt it back up.

You can get plugs to put in the trans to stop the fluid coming out from Super cheap etc. I've never used one but I will buy one when I see one.
