'59 apache manual 4 speed tranny removal

Hey Guys,

Well things have been moving along on my '59 apache...got my garage built (now it is 4car instead of 2) and have proceeded with taking it down to the frame.

Got the 235 engine pulled, removed the tranny. Now I don't see in my book an explanation as to removing the clutch/housing so I can bolt the engine up to a stand and clean it up.

Just so you know, everything ran prior to me dismantling. The engine will sit in the stand until the frame and body are ready for it again. I will basically clean it up and replace gaskets on it and tranny.

I see the two top bolts that secure the clutch housing to the block, and I believe I see something just inside the flywheel that appears to be the lower bolts. Am I right? How do you get at these? Any help is much appreciated.

Also, in case anyone has not mentioned in other threads... To make the guide pins for the tranny I used my RotoZip cutoff tool on some long bolts. I don't have an air compressor yet, and by jiminey that rotozip does well when you don't want to mangle something up with an angle grinder!

you'll have to take the flywheel off 1st. there's a total of 6 bolts holding the bellhousing on a 235. besides those 2 you can see, the others are inside behind the flywheel.

'59 apache 4 speed tranny removal

Thanks... I managed to find the short passage in my book that breifly explained the clutch and flywheel removal process.

Got the clutch out easy enough. The flywheel is another story. What's the best method for preventing the flywheel from spinning in order to remove those bolts?

I toyed with the idea of sticking a skrewdriver into the clutch bolt hole but don't want to mess threads up. I'm sure it's one of those simple things, but seeing that this is my first frame off deconstruction, it's all new to me.

thanks in advance
