Dropping the tansmission?

Does anyone know the best way to drop the transmission so that I can change the clutch?

I would check out the lightweight flywheel DIY (CCI?) for some info. Not sure if the pictures are still available, but the instructions were pretty thorough. I'm going to be in the same boat here in a few weeks (once the LSD shows up) and I get the franken-box put together.

I've done 4 engine swaps so far, and a clutch change, drop the crossmember when pulling the tranny, it'll save you a bunch of time. Disconnect the strut tops, calipers, and steering rack(getting the steering shaft back in place is a complete PITA its easier to pull the rack). That will give you complete easy access to the transmission without having to wiggle around things getting the transmission back in place.

I ordered a Flywheel and clutch and for some reason the clutch got here but the flywheel has disappeared in the mail. apparently is is too much effort for the mail man to walk up to the house on a Saturday and he just left a slip in the mail box for me to drive over to the post office and get it myself. but wait the fun doesn't stop there, at the post office they can't find it.

so what i have is a lazy postman, and then incompetence in putting the package where it should be.

^ the USPS's system has been broken for years. I honestly try to avoid using them for anything "important".

flywheel just showed up randomly. talked to the seller yesterday and as far as he knew it hadn't shipped. then all of a sudden it shows up today from ups.

apparently that other package was just the post man being afraid of the puppies in the yard and then he cam back later and dropped of the applicable package even though he wrote a 2 where a 7 was on the slip. well now i have my clutch and my flywheel, and will be starting on the swap in the morning.

so now i have a springless clutch disc kit(it was only a few dollars more than a replacement) including throw out/release bearing. and a Competition clutch Flywheel, weight 8.46lbs. should make for an interesting drive.

I was wondering if someone would catch that. ironically i could have got a springed clutch for 4 dollars less but only 4 where listed when i looked or it bugged and only showed the 4.

I'm also changing the fluids to Royal Purple 75w-90.

I'll debate whether the clutch will be changed or not depending on the damage. there is a good chance that all of my clutch slip is from hot spots in the flywheel. if that is the case then it will be the same clutch but change the spring plate and bearing.

I've been seriously considering this myself. Did you have to empty the AC system?

You can use Windows Paint--just resize using "pixels" instead of percent.

Yes we took down the AC system and capped it. that way we wouldn't bend the aluminum lines and brake anything.

F1 stage 4 Clutch kit


it was actually pretty easy to take the front clip/nose from the fenders forward and drop the engine out. took about 4 hours of labor, 3 if we didn't stop to analyze and recheck stuff to prevent binding up on exit.

Dropping the k-memeber


The engine was really easy to get out. love working on modular vehicles. and two of us can pick up the power-train assembly and move it about pretty easily


Clutch kit installed with the 8.46lbs flywheel


notice all thge pink on the head and block, yea, that was a gross coolant leak that was leaking down in the the transmission bell housing and providing my clutch and flywheel with some lubrication. it was coming from that hose clamp just on the edge of the picture, changed to a wider/strong/better clamp, no more leaks. no wonder it slipped and died.


putting it back in.
