More work done!

transmission is out:)

taking the clutch out with the bolt kit borrowed from Renner:)

blocking the flywheel - a trick courtesy of Renner. I was going to make a tool, but this was so much easier!

Question - is oil coming out of these holes normal?

old rear main seal and oil pump cover exposed. I didn't have philips screws holding the cover on, sadly I had bought the replacement cover and bolts - I might send them back now...

oil pump cover off.

oil pan off! now I need to get the old gasket off...

oil pump strainer - intact:) no missing parts.

Another question - this is a crack like thing in my clutch disc. it worries me. there are several like this:( Do i need a new clutch?

Mike V. stopped by this afternoon and dropped off a few tools and picked up some used parts. I think i'll clean up the housing and change the RMS and oil pump cover tonight...

I hope everyone has had a great weekend:)!
