Clutch replacement WITHOUT a cherry-picker
Posted 09 January 2005 - 11:11 PM
Yep, I'm doing this the old fashioned way. Now that I've got all the bolts (4 + 1 from the air conditioning component that was bolted to it) from the bell-housing out, I've been trying to separate the bell-housing from the block. It doesn't want to budge. Not being a mechanic...no, not even close, I'm not sure what to do next. Preferrably, people remove the engine to replace the clutch, but I'm using what I've got on hand. Any tips? I've been able to pry it about an inch or so away from the block, but now it just seems stuck. Help!

do you have the motor mounts unbolted? should be able to jack up the motor enough to clear the crossmember, and pull the engine forward (provided you have the rad out already)
No,I haven't done that. Where are those located?
P.S. THAT was a darn fast reply...

2. disconnect the exhaust - 4 14 mm nuts
3. Look back about 4 to 6 inches from where the exhaust bolts where, there is the cross member. look around on the parts where it slants up, there is two 14 mm nuts (one on each side of the block.
4. take a floor jack, lift the engine up by the oil pan (put a piece of wood between the jack and the oil pan) jack it up 2 or 3 inches.
5. now grab the engine by the oil fill pipe and the valve cover on the other side of the engine and pull forward. The engine should slide right away from the tranny.
6. change clutch
7. do steps 5 through 1 to install
