engine removal 84 excel


Recommended Posts

We are just about ready to remove engine and gearbox together from our excel. Has anyone got any advice on how far forward we have to bring the whole unit before the driveshaft splines disengage as that seems to be the only thing holding it all back at the mo. We are working with the front raised as we dont have a pit and access is tricky. Cheers, Jim

May sound daft, again on an Elite, don't forget to drain gearbox oil, I did, brain was not functioning at that moment, but suddenly came back to life with jolt when drive suddenly became covered with gear oil, as prop shaft flange dropped out of box, and the oily contents ran everywhere.

Hope all goes well.

Drained it all off yesterday thanks after reading another thread somewhere. Just wondering how reluctant the splines will be to disengage without some sort of leverage between diff and gearbox? I'm trying to pull it out with the first section of the exhaust attached as I cant separate the manifold/ exhaust joint which has some mangled nuts that wont free.
