The driveshaft is removed, the engine and transmission are supported by a transmission jack, the transmission mount is unbolted and the crossmember and motor mount bolts are loosened but not removed. The bolts are long can can be loosened a lot without removing them all the way.
With the crossmember and motor mounts loose, the engine and transmission can be tilted so all of the bellhousing bolts can be reached and removed. When this is done the transmission can be removed.
The transmission jack is lowered and the transmission is out!
The S2K uses a pull type pressure plate so the throw out bearing is attached to the diaphragm spring. Pull type pressure plates offer superior clamping as the stiffness of the clutch cover doesn't come into play to maintain clamping force. With a conventional pressure plate a flexing clutch cover reduces clamp force.
Howard removes the stock clutch by unbolting the pressure plate from the Flywheel.
When Vince was driving to work, his clutch suddenly would not disengage. What happened is the clutch disc hub broke and the broken piece jammed between the disc and the flywheel. The ACT clutch disc has a much thicker clutch disc hub so hopefully this will never happen again.
