never mind all this junk about turning 90? and all that do you think we done all this in ford motor co on the assembly line building three engines a minute .----? no if a petrol engine pull bolts down to around 70 lbs ,look at thickness of shank of the bolts this will tell you the tightness and make sure the holes in the block are clean and no oil or water in them .
this is easily done on this engine. just need a jack and some wheel ramps. take the battery off undo the starter motor, undo the box bolts to the engine and take the plate out. jack up remove the engine mount on gearbox side. ,then jack up after so engine is at an angle and pull off the gearbox and clutch housing oh forgot to say remove the gear link pin and clutch cable. now you can see the clutch and remove it. when putting the clutch back in locate the new clutch with a socket one of the long types think it was an 18mm just fits in right for the locator. then bolt down the new clutch take out the socket. and put back the engine in reverse. wiggle the gear box and casing to locate back onto the new clutch if dont fit in first time.
Hi Joe, Your first problem is to determine if the leakage is from the engine or the gearbox. If you find difficulty in determining which oil is leaking there should be a level drop, hopefully only in one. Whichever it is the engine and/or gearbox will need to come out. Personally being lazy and liking to work in as much ease as possible, I prefer removing the engine and gearbox as a unit and refitting after doing the required work. If you intend to do this work yourself let me know and hopefully I can give you some pointers while sitting back sipping on my favourite beverage. Regards John
In the engine compartment, you will need to locate the transmission dipstick. Usually on the left side of the motor, labeled "Trans fluid". Pull it out and check the fluid level. Your problem could be as simple as putting transmission fluid in it. That will make it slip. You fill the transmission right down the dipstick tube.
weather its diesel or V6 petrol you can remove small tin engine sump and oil pick ups then undo all 4 diff case mounting bolts to chassis one at a time remove and put back in only a few turns this then drops diff assembly down then install motor
works a treat!!!
you could be lazy and bend lip of tin engine sump over bolts in rear left side with hammer this works also but still is a bit of a struggle over that diff.
