okay everything is off bar the AC compressor.  Which appears to be a PITA to remove.  What is the easiest way please.

 

Thanks.

You really need to get a copy of the Service Notes.  You should be reading and referencing that before jumping in.

There are lifting tools that attach to the cylinder heads.  You may also want to employ a balance bar to help keep the load even.

Mike, me too although I did start doing some.....amateur's video's on Youtube about my cars and some repairs.  Passin Gas Garage is the name.  You need to have on the close caption stuff.....so that I can correct my verbal mistakes.  The most looked at video are the Esprit Video's.  I do it all from memory and well..........  Love the tool hanger board that you have, just makes sense!!!!!!

Ok engine and gearbox now out. 

Clutch and fly wheel have heat spots. Fly wheel looks to have been machined at least once already.  Can it be done again and should the bolt mounts have been machine down too to keep the pressure the same?

PNM offer a flywheel refurbishment service.  Yes, the clutch mounting needs to be machined to retain the correct step.

Turbo Dynamics also offer several upgrade levels for those who are planning to run a little more boost.
