    Bellhousing Removal

    I have been fighting with this thing for 2 days and I really can't find any info out there. The bellhousing is stuck on the engine and I cannot remove it. I took all the bolts off, even the one way at the top, sprayed it all down with PB over the course of a few days and still nothing.

    Does anybody have any tricks with this? I don't want to damage the bell by pounding too hard or wedging too much.... Thanks for your time and ideas.

    There are 4(if I remember correctly, could be 6 or 8 even) dow pins that hold the bellhousing in place. Once you get it off the pins, you will be home free. Thats what is holding it in place though.


    I just realized you are a manual tranny, I would assume the T56 has the pins too, but don't have personal experience with a manual bellhousing. Hopefully a T56 guy will come in here and confirm or correct me.

    There are dowel pins that can make removing the bell housing a pain. Cut a couple of 2x4 peices into wedges and work them into each side.

    I dunno maybe try putting a few of bolts back in and warm up the engine some. Then go @ it again while it's still warm.. Or try heating the lip of the bell with a propane torch some.. Not hot but warm working it around the lip..

    Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.
