My F78 needs a new clutch and I was planning to do it the way suggested by bundyrumandcoke which involved removing the entire engine, gearbox and transfer box in one go. I have access to an engine hoist, but what is the basic procedure and does anyone have any tips for the job?
I know I'll need to remove the radiator and front panel. Do I need to remove the bonnet? Any other major engine components? For the 'boxes is it just a case of the prop shafts and cross member and mounting bracket bolts?
When I get it out what's the best way of supporting the engine, is it ok just lying it on a concrete floor?
Finally is there anything else I should be checking or changing whilst I'm doing this job?
Any tips appreciated.
