Nope, belongs to a few friends of mine, though I do a fair bit of work there. Just a bunch of boring non-rally cars in there, anyway. :D

It's a fairly standard looking bearing. Silver disk, black rear portion, yellow dot on one side. It's significantly thicker than a "normal" bearing, and at least in my case, needed to have its tabs widened slightly to fit over the fork.

Man, all this talk about tranny and motor assembly just drudged up a lot of bad memories. :doh:
It always took that one last desperate attempt to get each step further to pulling and reinstalling that friggen motor and tranny. Whenever we were ready to throw in the towel and quit, the flywheel bolt would loosen up, the tranny would pop in, the motor mount would become dislodged, the downpipe would wiggle out, the spark plug would thread in, the oil cooler gaskets would finally seal properly, the rusty stripped bolt would finally come out, the metal oil line for the turbo would line up,...the list goes on and on. The bitch fought me every step of the way... It must be true love for me to endure such an abusive relationship

I'm a bit confused on what needs to be removed to allow the engine to sit on its cam cover side.

What is it resting on exactly?

Thanks

The motor mount and bracket. You can rest it on the crank pulley and a block of wood.

It's resting on the cam cover. Just put some carpet on the ground so it doesn't get damaged. The only thing that I would remove is the powersteering air bypass/idle valve. It is hooked up to the powersteering pump and made of cheap plastic. This POS is prone to breaking and costs like $80 from Toyota. It takes like 10sec. to remove.

I've finally gotten the green from KO. My kit is finally finished. When it comes to installing everything I will do a writeup on installing those bits and pieces. It's not hard but time consuming...

Awesome :) writeups are good :)

Dont suppose you have a picuture of the part your supposed to remove?

Just because im a noob, Cam cover is the Grey plastic timing belt cover?

Im assuming that the pullies that sit outside of these two covers should be removed :shrug: lol

Thanks again guys

I can't find the picture but it's connected to the powersteering pump. It's hard to spot until you get the engine out or you're really under the car. It looks like a bolt but has two bungs coming out (connected to hoses). The online BGB is no longer there so I can't find a pic.

**EDIT**
OK NM. I found it...

I wasn't especially happy about putting mine on the pully and cam cover alone, given that it's a lot of weight spread over mostly easily broken plastic. I just put the lower part of the engine mount back on and rested it on that and a chunk of 2x4 under the crank pully.

It's the idle up vacuum valve. Screws into the bottom of the PS pump. It's around $80 and very easy to break, so it's a good idea to pull it. Handy way to drain the PS system, too.

You'll want to yank the passenger side CV shaft first, though, else it's nearly impossible to get to. Also wear safety glasses. PS fluid in the face sucks.

Thanks for the tips , makes sense now :)

To take the tranny off, is it a good idea to try the same approach with the engine on its side? and use the hoist to take the tranny weight? or keep the engine up right?

thanks

How much did that clutch set ya back?

When you get to beat on it a bit, let us know how you like it, and whether or not its total overkill for 300hp.

I'm gonna need a new clutch in the new year.

I took the tranny off with the engine sitting upright on the floor. I did it by myself and had some small bits of wood under the sump on the tranny end so the tranny was not touching the floor. I used to hoist to stabilize it slightly and wrestled it off like that. Lifting it off with the engine on its side is a LOT easier unless you have someone to help you get the correct angle with it on the ground. Lifting the transfer case to the correct angle while trying to remove the tranny is not easy.
