Seriously the LUK LS7 package on Amazon is a great deal. I make 365 rwhp and the clutch holds fine and comes with flywheel and everything. Probably have over 30k miles on mine already. And I'm shitty at driving stick
There is a tool that comes with the clutch. Install the clutch with bolts loose, install spline tool to align splines. Tighten the boltsAlright, so im trying to get the engine to line up with the input shaft and clutch but its kicking my ass. Is there any other way to line it all up without dropping the cradle? Seems to be the only drawback of having a clutch during reinstall. Also worried about the fins on the clutch being damaged by the input shaft if i try to force it
I worded my post incorrectly out of frustration. The clutch is on and im lowering the engine in the bay now. I just cant seem to get the rear of the engine lined up with the trans well enough. I'll edit the other postThere is a tool that comes with the clutch. Install the clutch with bolts loose, install spline tool to align splines. Tighten the bolts
This.I think the issue he's having is getting the input shaft of the trans aligned to the same angle of the engine/clutch to get it in to the pilot bearing. Which is just a matter of balancing it on a trans jack/jack until it goes in.
Ah, I've screwed myself then. Ive got the floor jack under the trans and its helping but yeah not quite enoughOh yea I would never keep a trans in and expect to align it without issue.
What's the trans, 4 bolts a shifter and a few mins and it's out?
Then again I'm the one who caught the t56 as it slipped off the jack and rolled off my creeper into 4 qts of trans fluid and bench pressed the trans up, aligned trans and started 2 bolts in one swift motion.
Lol yeah its all good. Got it done in about 30minsBack the trans up would've been easier me thinks. That realignment of the cradle might prove to be painful.
But as long as it works... I is happy.
