the **** is isuzu's damn problem when they put the bolt holding the exaust to the transfer case on the top of the mother*****? im about to take a cut wheel to the piece of crap and then have to still drop the damn tranny to get the clutch plate off. original problem is my disk and clutch went out around the corner, babied it home and got the tranny on the jack and going to lower it and come to find the one FU**ing bolt is facing the wrong way, it is looking towards the sky when it should be facing the damn ground. wtf isuzu? anyone know of the bolt im talking about? any help in getting it out? im at a loss as i still have to go to work tonight and im already pissed and its a friday.

If you were a little closer I would...Couldn't get some of my exhaust to drop so I started cutting. Was cut off behind the cab for a day or two, but I manipulated all the stock pieces back together in the form of a muffler delete....Cat's next, but boy how I hate welding "up"....hopefully somebody knows how to better help.

thats a hell lot of work... at the beginning of the day, i got up around 2pm as i work nights at fedex, i laid down on the creeper in my crouded garage (2 uncles and my brother-in-law) and talked to it. i was like "im about to work on you baby, im going to be gentle at first but please dont piss me off" and it came right out. moved on to the bell housing bolts, and got them all out and then had a little trouble getting the actual tranny off the shaft, but with all the people, we dropped it on a tire from pulling it from behind. long story short, it is out and i have to find a place to get a new fly wheel as it is blued and spotted and there isnt anything left as the metal was all gone, along with the pressure plate as it is down to bare metal.. :shock: :shock: but it is all good. :mrgreen: :glasses4: :tongue8:

but i am moving forward installing a fly wheel, and the clutch kit.

thats where im at atleast, tranny out, looking at new flywheel, if anyone has any advice, that would be awesome. :)

well, bell housing is all clean, and the pilot bearing, fly wheel, pressure plate and clutch plate. all i have to do now is the pilot bearing and then install it back into the truck.

only till i pulled the big muscle in my lower back yesterday moving that heavy soma piece of weight. :(
man, that sucks. Take care of that thing man. I had cut up blocks of 2x4, about 12 of them to help assist in moving that transmission and case around. It helped alot. Get a scrap piece and cut it down in 4" - 6" pieces.

Ice that thing.

cheers

You need to Liston to the song cause I had ah bad day, while working! It may help. It might help to prop up the front of the motor when you put it back together. Sometimes it gives better working room.
