Victim:1987 S/R 5spd Turbo wagon from outer space

I've got a clutch kit,rear main seal,sweet flywheel from Skip also to be installed.With that said,can I do all this with just yanking the tranny back?Drop the exaust?Not drop the exhaust?

I just started taking stuff off tonight.I'll be all over it tomorrow weather permitting.

My current plan was to jack the motor-unless my friend comes through with the lift-roll the motor forward,then lower the tranny with it's crossmember and lower it as I back it off the front crossmember.

Also noticed the power steering pump mounting bolts are way under the intake.Do you guys disconnect the lines if you're not lifting the intake?I normally put an EA82 n/a power steering pump off to the side when lifting.But,if I don't have to lift to swap the tranny,etc........

Any advice appreciated.

pull the raid, slide the engine forward works for hte clutch.. not suer about the flywheel..
Either way pulling the engine is easier than pulling the tranny

for the power steering, take the pulley off(19mm i think) and there are 3 12mm bolts behind the pulley that hold ot to the bracket.. pop those off and youre good to go.

if you do the clutch with the motor in the car, pull the radiator, and the heater hoses, thats all. if you have a crane, you can pull the motor towards the front away from the trans, just enough to remove the clutch disc, a little more to remove the pp also. if you dont use a clutch alignment tool, you can finger tighten the pp bolts, enough to hold the disc still, but still move it around by hand. then tighten the bolts in sequence through the starter hole

for a turbo, and all its complicity, i would say its not hard to pull the trans, if you get the car off the ground enough. i like to jack the car up sideways to drag the tranny out once its removed.

if you would like to pull the tranny, i always drain the diff oil, makes less mess, you are changing it. the turbo downpipe fits on the side and back of the tranny. i would disconnect the flange for the mod pipe, and unbilt the top flange from the turbo, and leave the downpipe on the tranny. because when you line up the bottom studs, naturally, the turbo will line too.

if yer pulling the motor out, the ps lines can be disconnected at the pump. the motor comes out with everything on it, turbo and all, belts. the ac/alt bracket can be swung out the way, with alt, ac, and its wiring still connected. if the ac is bad and you disconnect the ac lines, you can leave all that on the motor as you pull it

.....if people have slipped the tranny out without taking the exhaust down.dats wut i wanna noe.Or with just moving the exhaust and not the engine.

Looking to see if someone had done more than one method and knew the quicker or easier route.

I haven't had time to get back to it today.I'll be there later when its dark and raining. :rolleyes:

OK group Stooges slap! :D

well ou can pull the engine and leave the exhaust in the car.. or you can pull the trans and the exhaust.. either way its still some work.. the engine pull is easier tho cause ya don't have to crawl around under the car..
