Bench press it up into place, it's just light enough that you don't have to be unusually strong to do that. Gotta have the car at the right height though, high enough that you can fit under the transmission under the car but low enough that you're not trying to lift the thing way up in the air.
I helped a friend swap in an M47 and, to me, that was tough going. I'm installing an M46 and he's gonna help. I'm going to get a trans jack.
