Hey guys so I finally was able to crack into the rb20det for a couple hours since its only 85 degrees today. So the plan is to get the transmission off along with the clutch and flywheel then get it up on the stand.
I was able to remove the starter and the tranny bolts while it was on the little dolly I made for its storage. It was fairly simple, just remove all the various 14mm bolts and nuts around the transmission.
I removed the bolts around the pressure plate and it came off. The clutch doesn't even look worn out. I'm really debating on just using it till its time to switch what do ya'll think?? I know its a bad pic but the wear isn't even near the rivet things. IDK we will see I guess.
I have no clue as to why the pics keep coming out sideways! Sucks! Time to remove the flywheel. Lets see how the bolts stand up to my harbor freight wrench gun.
They didnt stand a chance and came right off lol.
Took the flywheel off not time for the fun part. Lifting it high enough and bolting it up to the stand. I got 4 m10 x 1.50 75mm long bots from home depot since the stock trans bolts were too short.
Using my engine hoist with a tie strap, step table and a jack to tilt the motor straight it actually worked lol. The motor kept tilting to the left so I had to jack it up to straighten it out.
A shot of the rear on how I mounted it all up its the pic is prolly sideways of course smh. I used two washers on each screw.
I removed the ac compressor, bracket and belt. Also the power steering pump, bracket, and belt. It created alot of room on this side. The engine was a little bouncing/ shaking while i was tugging on the components I was freaking out for a sec lol. I also removed the alternator belt because I will replace the timing belt soon. I noticed that when I was moving the motor oil was coming out the turbo area! So I took off the drain plug and look what came out.
Like a coupe quarts of oil came out lol I got this motor from an import shop and I guess it camr from japan??! Who really knows knows for real though lol if so this oil came along way. Thats all for now guy and gals. Its going to be 95 degrees like the next week ugh.
