Need a clutch line up tool for EA81. Anyone have an extra I could have??? Or have an idea of what I can use?? I want to do my rear oil seal while the engine is out.

I bought mine at Advance auto when I did the clutch on the brat last summer. It was only $2 and plastic, but worked perfectly.

Just use a bolt or similar and your eye. As long as you have good light you will be able to get it close enough.

i've heard about a trick (miles fox' i think) where you leave the starter off so you can leave the pressure plate untorqued until after the trans and engine are joined. that will allow you to fidget with the clutch disc.

yes if you do that and leave the pp bolts loose enought he clutch disc will slide around it will center itself as the motor goes on, the tighten the bolts thru the starter hole. i learned this tricl off the bard several versions ago

another thing i found to work especially with gen 1 subarus is to use a 3/8 ratchet extension, its near a perfect fit in the pilpt hole, and wrap electrical tape around it to fit in the clutch dsc hole, this doesnt work bad at all i did it twice in a row fixing soobs for hire

I have one I can send ya if ya want but I too got it at advance for like $2 or something like that. If you want it send me a pm. I no longer have the Brat so it isn't much use to me.
