OK, I posted this simple question on the JEEP board a day or so ago, they've been less then helpfull-busey with their selfesteam building bible.
anyways

I'm replacing a blown4.0L with another one for my friend.
It's a 92'wrangler, no big mods or anything.

Now I removed all the bellhousing bolts and removed the exahust. Also removed all the bolts in holding that plate in between (looks like an inspection plate) Everything seems to be unbolted, but I can't get the motor to seperate from the tranny. It has an internal slave cylinder, if that matters. The BFH an prybar didn't phase it...???

If any of you had ever worked on one, I'm looking for any tricks and such...

Thanks

We just separated the same thing on a '93 cherokee and found out we had actually missed 2 bolts that did not look like they attached to the assembly at all. The bolts are located around the resevoir hose that comes from the hydraulic clutch resevoir. Don't know if this helps but I can say that it was bitch for us too.

Did you unbolt the starter? also, carefully recheck the bell housing again. those pesky bolts can really hide sometimes. Especially
if its really greasy and *****. There is nothing in the bell housing that should hang you up. And finally,,,,,, and this is the most inmportant,,,,,,, Tell him to sell the POS and buy a Toyota so you you dont have to work it all the time!!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

Are you just trying to seperate the two in place or is there an engine hoist being used? Its possible that the weight of the tranny is causing the shaft to bind as your trying to lift not letting them free up. you may need to unbolt the driveshaft and the trans mount and slide the trans straight back to remove it. I've assisted my brother on installing 3 different tranny's in his Jeep as well as a 4.0 just a few weeks ago. If you want you can e-mail him direct at [email protected] and I'm sure he can give you better specifics.

Check for hidden bolts, hold motor weight at back of oil pan with a bottle jack, wiggle and shake till it pops.

I'll check the slave cylinder area. But to answer another post, yes, I have it supported on a hoist, and I even lowered the tranny a few inches to get all the top bolts out...

Thanks, that was way more info then they chose to give up...check it out...their (mission statment) bible is funny to <IMG SRC="smilies/laughing.gif" border="0">
