instead of starting a new thread, i've added an additional clutch Q at the end

---------------------

Okay.. my brain is dead this morning, and my books & search function cant wake it up.

I've got this stupid idea in my head, and cant properly kill it or move it into the "save for later" area without knowing the following three answers.

1. Exactly when was it along the timeline that Subaru went from the small clutch to the larger clutch assy in all models? 83 wasnt it?
YES, 83 and up.

2. What is the large clutch assy? 200mm (7 7/8) right?
NO, 225MM is the large clutch.

3. Are there any real differences between 2wd and 4wd clutch assys as compared within the same MY?

4. (optional..just so I can think without actually tearing it apart to see) Ignoring possible swaps, what size clutch assy should I have in my 84 Brat?
225mm is what should be there.

Yeah it did help a bit. Got a little bit better feel for interchange possibilities..

I can cross out #2 above. I managed to find it while searching for something unreleated. *shrug*

The 200mm is considered to be the small clutch. 225mm is the large.

I've read all about clutch replacements, but none that deal with a lifted Ru.

Since all I've got is the carb and exhaust system and nothing else, I've fallen into the "pull the engine" camp. I like the idea of only 5 bellshousing bolts, and two motor mounts, then lift! heheh. No crawling underneath to muscle a tranny back into place.

However, all the descriptions I've seen deal with unlifted roos. I can visualize how the engine can slide forward with the radiator removed, but in my case, the engine is sitting halfway down below the framerails, and I've only got about 3.5" or so between the crank pulley and the bottom of the core support. Is this enough room to slide it forward enough to get it off the input shaft?

What about undoing both the engine and tranny mounts, and pivoting the whole bloody unit upwards just a bit.. but I'm not sure I could get good enough of an angle to put the engine through the radiator area.

Heh... I'm believing it would be easier to drop the whole front subframe and lift the body out of the way. :lol:

My throwout bearing (or something in there) is screaming like a banshee and its ticking me off. So I'm planning on separating the two parts to see whats wrong, and replace the offending part since I dont have the cash for a full on clutch set.

So whats the best route for me to take to split the two?
