Anyway managed to repair the clutch extraction tool and it jumped off the loctite eventually, the woodruff key took some getting out as well.
Next problem is getting the cases apart, rather naively I thought I could do this without taking gearbox apart then found the stud that couldn't be reached without opening the lid.
So I'm happy that all the studs and bolts are out and the top of the cases moves with a bit of timber in the tappet block holes, but the bottom half is still pretty stiff - I am being cautious about using force.
Can you please give me a little advice on how much leverage can be used safely and where? There must be some tricks to this without creating damage.
- Afraid I am lining up questions about putting this lot back together, but will stick to one at a time.
Thanks in advance.
ps. for those in the sunshine places- it is a still raining in UK - about 4 degrees and the only thing on tv is the X factor - a good night to get in the garage and get oily, sadly run out of "Old Speckled Hen"
