Removing the engine
Removing the engine was quick, we have an adjustable transmission jack that we use, this makes tilting operations alot easier, sure beats trying to balance the engine on a small jack.
The clutch and pressure plate were pulled, and found to be still in good condition, since we already had the engine out already, the gland-nut was replaced. (the gland nut holds the pilot bearing the input shaft of the tranmission rides in, with it worn all sorts of shifting / grinding problems might occur)
The distributor was given a good clean-up and everything was set aside, next was the transmission.
