Coupe/GTE/SS1 Clearout

I'll double check when I go down in a little bit Raz. I'm in Cheshire but can post it. I'll grab you a photo and you can see if you want it

Cheers

I couldn't lift it onto the scales but it's roughly twice the weight of a Ti Gearbox :?

I can confirm the makeshift transmission jack works and the gearbox is in again :)

I've put some threaded bar up through the stand mounting holes so the fingers are now about 6" up the side of the gearbox. I've given it a good shove and all seems good so far

Something like a spare engine stand made to fit a jack :)

I've just been reading your thread with jealousy! Wish I could've chopped some tunnel out to help :lol:
The Jag box weighs an absolute tonne too, a lot more than any Scim box so I'm going to get creative with the tools to lift it back up into place. Hopefully I'll have it together in the next week

Cheers Mike. After putting the engine in and getting it running, I had an issue with the clutch in that it wouldn't disengage. It already had a refurbished clutch unit, a new slave cylinder and Flexi hose so I did the last bit and did the master cylinder but it made no difference. The hydraulics wer...

FS: Honda S2000

Mods delete if not allowed - advertised elsewhere but quite a few Scim owners have expressed interest in S2000s. I bought this Moonrock Grey car a couple of months ago to use everyday but having done a fair amount of work to it, I’ve decided it’s too good to use daily and I don’t want to ruin it, he...
