Step 9: Removing the Transmission from the Engine

Description: When the engine is dropped, the transmission is still attached. The transmission will be removed and later attached to the electric engine (along with the clutch).

Tools Needed: Various wrenches and ratchet wrenches (metric). Also some sort of support will be needed to put the transmission on. I got another furniture cart for 20 dollars at Home Despot.

Estimated Time: 1 hour

Caveats: None

I spent a lot of time worrying about this, and it turned out to be a very simple procedure.

Here is the transmission and engine mounted. The top left black cylinder sticking out of the transmission is the starter motor. It took me awhile to figure that out. It appears to hook up with the flywheel to spin the gas engine to get it going. Presumably, I won't need it for the electric engine, so will give it to whoever takes my old combustion engine. There was also a little plug leading leading down to the side of the transmission (not pictured) that I believe is used for the reverse light indicator. I'm not sure if I'll need that or not.
Removing the starter was a simple matter of unscrewing a couple of nuts and bolts.
Next, the exhaust has to be removed in the back, as it impinges on pulling the transmission from the engine.

First the rear part of the exhaust can be unscrewed (3 nut/bolt combos on each side) and removed. This almost clears the way, but we still have the transmission mount to the exhaust.

This is just two bolts on the tranny and two (already removed) from the exhaust. Once you have that out, you are clear to detach and remove the transmission.

This involves removing two bolts from up top (one was already part of the motor starter mounting) and two nuts from below. the one pictured is a little tricky as there isn't much access, but I finally managed to get it out of there. The transmission can then be detached from the motor. It is heavier in the back, but one person can move it. As mentioned, I moved it onto another furniture cart to make it easier to move around the garage as needed.

Here is the detached transmission. I will also drain the transmission fluid, which I haven't done yet and put in some new stuff (It requires a whopping 17 mm hex wrench, which is available at most auto parts stores).

The clutch casing is still attached to the engine. So far, I think it looks okay, but the next step is to pull it off and take a look at the whole thing. Before I started this project, I didn't really know that a clutch and transmission were two different things, so I am certainly learning!

Lastly, a lot of bloggers put up pictures of their pets, so I'll leave you with a picture of one of my dogs, Whitman. I got him shortly after I met my wife ten years ago. We picked him up at the pound in San Francisco. He was a stray found in Golden Gate Park, presumably a cocker spaniel mix. He definitely cemented our relationship and I sometimes wonder if he was the real reason my wife married me.
