Trans out today.. was a bit of a hassle as i've never had a pull clutch before so some 97-98 WRX service manuals saved my skin.

Anyways, had to get off the DP first which proved to be a pain. Bolts were on WAAAAAAAAAY tight. Some heat treat and all were good.. expect one. Rounded the nut with a 6 point wrench . So i got out the dremel and three wheels later looked a bit like this:



Literally no shaft play, and Pretty clean too.



Took of the trans, but after i had the "regular" bolts off i pulled and pulled until i found this picture, with the pin i had to take out (circled in red) in the service manual.



Little cover, or rather, the piece that keeps the pin in, is right here and looks like this (taken after the fact for informative purposes):



And then you have to put a longish bolt in the threads to pull the pin out:



Came right out after that.





You can see the pin pushed in a bit after removal in this picture.



Pretty interesting looking clutch and pressure plate if i do say so myself.

Tomorrow i want to get off the clutch and flywheel and then get off the trans in the blue car and put this one in (and diff and all that). Not sure if i can get that done tomorrow, but i am shooting for the trans and brakes to be in by Monday. Not painting the calipers quite yet.

Questions:

Flywheel and clutch will go on the 251 just fine, right?

Can i use the turbo X member with the nonturbo car? Would allow me to NOT have the take out the axles nuts and just swap hubs over.

Speed sensor and neutral position (i believe it is) should plug in just fine, right?

Not much today:

Just got the clutch and flywheel off. Both look and feel super good. Lightly used for sure.









Tomorrow i throw this on to my car, along with the transmission hopefully.



S'all for now. Tomorrow should be fun.

Dropped the RS rear and threw on the STi rear.

Parking brake cables are a pain in the ass and for whatever reason took me forever to get together.

Pictures:

RS Stuff coming out


Bare car..


And STi stuff in


Did run into one problem. Before i decided to just move EVERYTHING over i was trying to take off the hubs, so i took of the nut on the giagantor bolt and then hammered on i to try and get it out (which it wouldn't) and ended up with this:



The nut won't go back on, and it's not a huge deal as i have another one of the bolts in my bin of bolts... the only problem is the damn thing STILL will not come out. I have put LOTS of force into the bolt head, banged on it (obviously) sprayed it down with PB blaster.. I guess the next thing is to take off the lat links from the crossmember and hope they free up some tension.

As far an inconveniences go though, i am glad it's something like this and not something more annoying or big.

Tomorrow is trans swap day.

Oh, and i also need a single STi sway bar bushing haha. Odd thing to not come with everything... though it probably feel off years ago before i had it in my possession as i don't remember seeing it.

I feel your pain on the parking brake. It's kind of a pita. Mine is more hooked up now and fully adjusted and still doesnt work well on big hills. I need to like adjust the cables themselves

Let me know what size sway bushing you need. Also, just take a triangle metal file to that badass bolt once you get it out and reshape that thread. I had to do the same with my green wagons driver side.


P.S. - Only the gays take ALL NIGHT to install the ebrake cables, took me a whole 15 minutes BOTH times I installed that shit, including running the cables from the rear hubs up through the tranny tunnel You are failing at life, sir.

Just remember, from the back side of the hubs, UP is tightening your parking brake pads against the rotors. I would start at full tight, then work your way down until your ebrake pads dont rub along the inside.

It's a 20mm bar.


Also.. stuck on this... I am a bit embarrassed as i thought it was plug and play as far as wiring..
