I'm trying to drop the transmission out of 1985 Dodge Lancer 2.2 L 4 Cyl. Turbo to install a new clutch kit. There is a lot of connections going into the bell housing and tranny which ones do disconnect?...
my favourite job ,i love clutches like i love ,well think of something ??,anyway you will need to disconnect the clutch ,gear change mechanism ,front suspension off and drive shafts out ,reverse light connection ,now some front wheel drive vehicles you have to lower the subframe as well .iam asuming its front wheel drive as i have never seen one ,now another trick i do to save time is to just open the bell housing about 3 inches then undo one bolt on the clutch at a time and turn flywheel with a big screwdriver ,then work out where the clutch bolts are in relation to the bell housing then drill a hole that i can get my 10mm socket through and in line with the clutch bolts ,then place new clutch in position and finger tighten bolts ,then refit bellhousing with a wiggle and as the clutch is loose it can move and align up .then when i have the bellhousing in place and bolts in and tight ,i can then tighten clutch bolts one at a time by turning ringear with a screwdriver but go round twice and their you are one clutch change ,shouldnt take including teabreak more than 3 hours .
