Clutch job on lifted rigs..
Posted 05 February 2005 - 04:32 PM
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.
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?

Does the noise only happen when the cluch peddle is at down? If so its deffentley the thrust bearing. If it happens all the time, It might be the big end bearing? I have half a clue about engines, but my knowlage only goes so far, till i ask my dad :-\
You could try using a jack to jack the gearbox and a rope or chain to hole up engine, with the radiator out pull the engine off the box changed the bearing and put it all back together
