Transmission Removal

Getting ready to remove the trannny for the clutch install. There has been discussion on a notch in the crossmember that is needed. Did a search but no go. Can someone tell me where to make the notch? Also should I resurface the flywheel and replace the bearing in it? TIA Jim

Re: Transmission Removal

I just swapped out my tranny on Monday. Here goes!

I was able to get the tranny out without cutting anything. (I shook the crap out of it!!) The problem arose when I tried to put it back in. It wouldn't fit! Here is what I did. If you lay under your Zuk (head toward motor, feet toward rear wheels) you will see that the transmission has a rear support that it is bolted to. The tranny is bolted to this support with 2 bolts With me so far? OK, what I did was to grind a slot half inch wide and about 1/4 to 1/2 deep in the cross member. Kind of a half circle. Took about 5 seconds of grinding and it fit right in there. Just look at the pic below and you can see for yourself (yes its greasy, why do you think I changed the thing?)

Re: Transmission Removal

Jim, definitely resurface the flywheel and use new bearings. While the tranny is out it's the perfect time to do the job right.
