Clutch replacement

Finally replacing the clutch on my 95 Aero - as far as I know, it's the original clutch ! My Sachs pressure plate arrived from Abbott Racing last week, just waiting now on the Aero clutch disc, slave and master cylinder to arrive. l'll o be making up a braided SS clutch line. While the engine is out of the car, also rebuilding the water pump and oil pump, dropping the oil pan and cleaning the oil pickup screen. Replace the shift linkage - the list goes on ......
I found a place to rent an engine hoist, what I'm looking for now is an engine stand - any suggestions ?

Making some progress - the engine/trans is out of the car - even if I did have to use a die grinder and cutoff wheel to "remove" the shift coupler ...
Mikey, our Maine Coon, is currently on guard duty in the garage ....

That engine hoist looks cheap and Chinese. Where did you get it?

I'm sworn to secrecy - and I assure you, it's neither cheap, nor chinese ....
I was able to pull the engine myself - under feline supervision - and it's now getting dissasembled. I'm considering replacing the head gasket while it's out of the car - might as well do it now as later.

Sometimes you can loosen the bolts that hold it onto the shift lever, and drill it out in a press. I had luck on one car with a long prybar and other one had to drill it.

Maybe a Crazy Ray's run for a spare shift coupling?

Got the pin out today - BIG pair of ViseGrips did the trick - this was the tapered pin on the transmission side of the coupling. The shifter side of the coupling came off relatively easy !

I'm off Monday. Tuesday & Wednesday this week if you need any help. I'm supposed to cut up a huge Beech tree late Tuesday with my Stihl MS 440.

Have you finished the car yet? We missed you at Carlisle.

Working seven days a week for the last six weeks has really delayed me - but I am making progress. I even found a place that is lightening the flywheel - taking it from 21 lbs down to 14 lbs. And I'm not working this weekend, so I should be able to get more done.
I replaced the rear seal with no problems - it was more difficult getting the old seal out, than the new one in. Having that plate that the seal mounts in off the engine makes all the difference. I just lubed the seal with a little oil, was able to tap (not hammer) it into the plate, then mount the plate to the engine. Again used a little oil on the inner circumference of the seal, and was able to guide it into place easily .........
And again, if I wasn't so anal about being aseptic, it would probably go faster !
