Transmission Removal Debate

Since my engine is in good shape I opted to pull the transmission out
through the back seat. Actually lifting the bugger out wasn't too bad since
I had two strong teenagers to help. The toughest part was loosening the 4
mounting bolts. That's quite a stretch from the front seat, reaching back
into the engine compartment and trying to put some torque to a crescent
wrench.
But there is another matter to consider. Once a project like this
starts, there is always another piece to pull off, then another, and
another... Now I'm wondering about the clutch. It was slipping a little
the last time I tried to drive Amphi up the trailer ramp. Perhaps only the
clutch cable needed adjustment, or perhaps the clutch needs replacing. I
don't know. I can see the clutch clearly after removing the transmission.
But, to actually remove it would be tough since the engine is still in the
car, and the clutch has a cover on it with 10,000 bolts holding it in place.
In hindsight it would probably have been better to pull the engine and
transmission together.
In a slightly different matter, how does the rubber transmission mount
work? On one of mine the rubber assembly slides right out of its housing.
What is suppose to hold it down? The other one appears glued in. Could
that be right?

p.s. You can really see into the bilge with the transmission out. Yuck.

Arnold:
The ones which is slipping needs to be replaced. It's come loose from it's
metal housing. I'd replace both while your at it.

Yuck.


Time to call Mr G. To replace that bad moumt. A lot of time the load
pulls up on the mount, just tears them apart. Those wild guys in
Europe reinforce them to make them last longer. Tommy in Tampa red 67
