Changing the clutch on 2F - will the bell-housing come off?

Unread post by zacthegreat5 » December 29th, 2015, 3:28 pm

Hello 60 gurus. I am doing a bit of an overhaul on a mates 60. Gearbox, transfer, clutch and flywheel grind. My question is. Is the bell housing able to be removed? It'd make the clutch a million times easier to do. Or am I going to have to just sit there turning the main pulley over bit by bit to get the clutch basket off? Thanks guys.

THe bell housing comes off. From memory its 8 bolts in 2 different sizes all 14-17mm heads.

It would be practically impossible to do without removing the housing.

By the way the motor is a 2f which is why the fsm has been useless.

SO its a 2F and not a 2H, well I have no idea. have you removed the starter?

On the 2H there are two bolts you have to get to from the top (Under the boot on a HJ47)

Changing Clutch on 2F motor

Unread post by zacthegreat5 » December 30th, 2015, 12:27 am

Doing some overhauling on a mates 60. New box, transfer, clutch and flywheel. My question is. Can the bell housing be removed? The fsm is hazy on the prospect and I just cannot find the last boots holding it on. I know that sounds stupid but it looks like they are actually behind the flywheel. So does it come off? If not then how the hell do I do the clutch? Thanks

So you have had the housing off on a 2f? Coz it really looks to bolt from the inside bottom or the block. It's stupid as. Never seen anything like this bloody thing.

Sorry I was thinking 3F

For the 2f the clutch and flywheel have to be removed before the bellhousing can be unbolted from the engine block.Get the pressure plate off, then the bolts on the flywheel and remove it and then the 6 bolts on the bellhousing, two outside the bellhousing and 4 inside. You probably don't need to remove the bellhousing as flywheel and clutch are out before then.

What a pain in the arse. So you have to align the clutch with the flywheel on? Is the easiest way to remove and tesnsion just the turn the crank pulley with a socket and undo the bolts of the pressure plate from the bottom?

this won't help with the clutch but could be helpful to download and have on hand.
