Tranny Time

image

The M41 cleaned up pretty well and it wasn’t as much work as I thought. Getting it in the car is another matter.

I haven’t ever done a clutch in an 1800 before. I’ve done a few Amazons and 240s. And many Japanese cars. It quickly became apparent that the geometry was wrong to get the tranny in with the bell housing on. Luckily the bell comes off with four hex bolts.

The M41 looks pretty svelte with no bell:

And it slipped in right through the release bearing and disc very easily.

Action on the clutch fork is perfect. On to the rest.

Addendum- My friend Dave down in TN sent me a pic of his secret weapon for this job:

It’s a 3/8 hex with a wobble head welded to a 3/8 driver. He says this with a 12″ extension is the kit to have. I had a standard hex on a long wobble extension that worked ok, but it was really tight. I’m going to make a setup like this for next time.
