Hi, I just recently got a new exedy clutch for my 1988 13b TII. I read the manual and everything so I have a pretty basic idea of it. But I am still clueless for on how to take the transmission apart. Can anyone help me on this. Or better else, can someone send me a pic on how to take out the engine and the transmission apart? For example, where to hook the cherry picker? Also, what essential parts should I check or replace before installing a new clutch? Thanks - JP

Here is something I wrote up about 5 years ago. Not really a "how-to", but it should give you a rough idea of what is involved. The transmission needs to be removed to access the clutch assembly. There are just five bolts holding the transmission to the engine, but you also have to take out the driveshaft, part of the exahaust, starter, the tranny crossmember, yadda yadda. Relatively advanced project, but a great learning opportunity. Do it right, so you won't have to do it all over again. Good to have some other transportation available, just in case you need to replace something unexpected or you make a mistake and need more time to figure out how to fix your error. Whatever you do, don't force the tranny and engine back together with the bolts. If they are properly lined up, they will slide together all the way; if not, keep rocking the tranny around until it slides all the way in.
