Once the engine was out we first took the starter off and then the transmission. The clutch didn’t look too bad but it was definitely not new either (this is how it is with a car without a proper history, you never know what you will find) so it will be replaced altogether. The flywheel looked ok but it will have to come off so I can replace the rear crank oil seal. That will also allow me to measure the flywheel to make sure it’s not worn out (as I suspect it might be). Last but not least we removed the clutch fork, it will be cleaned and thoroughly inspected for cracks.
To get the flywheel off I need to buy a XZN M12 bit. Once I have that and get the flywheel off I know what parts I need and can make an order. While I wait for the parts to arrive I will clean the engine and transmission as well as the underside of the car. I also have to clean the CV joints so I can decide if they can be reused or if they need to be replaced too.
