[DML] Re: Pulling Transmission

Get out your Parts Manual. Secion 4-1-1. 
4 bolts #2
4 bolts #12
Plate # 16 w/ 4 bolts #14
Plate #7 comes out when you remove the starter
Plate #15 w/ 2 #13 bolts
You have to jack up the motor and transmission to get to all of the
screws for Plate # 16
The transmission can get stuck on the locating dowels # 11 so you have
to work it loose and maybe pry the transmission off. It helps to keep
it level and straight or it will hang up and be difficult to remove.
It is also possible the input shaft is stuck in the friction plate.
Should come loose but in worst case you must remove the pressure plate
from the flywheel and take it all out in one lump. Not easy, you must
rotate the flywheel to get to all of the bolts. Also makes it a LOT
heavier. Can also get stuck in the pilot (spigot) bearing. Again, you
must remove it as straight as you can and may have to force it apart
taking the pilot bearing with the input shaft. Try not to let the
half/shafts hang, that can bend the collar that the C/V boots attach
to. Good time to rebuild/replace the clutch slave cylinder. If you
still have the plastic clutch line replace it with the steel-braided
line. While the transmission is out you should check the 5th gear fork
and the pins in the 1-2 shifter fork rail. You should also consider
replacing the C/V boots if they are still the origonals and repacking
the joints. New output seals on the transmission too. Inspect the
transmission mounts carefully. Especially the rear left one for
cracks. Drain the oil from the transmission before you try to remove it.

the engine. I have the 4 big bolts, 3 at the starter and 2 on top out
(trans mounts and linkages are also out with a jack under the tranny).
I see mention of two covers on the bottom and driver side but can not
find them. Has anyone seen any pictures describing the process? I am
looking at the shop manual and see no mention of having to remove a
plate prior to dropping the transmission. It does mention a "flywheel
protection shield" in step 10 but that is after lowering the
transmission. I can't figure out what I am missing. Has anyone seen
any photos of the process I can look at or have any ideas what I may
be missing?
