Transmission/engine removal help! (w/pic)
I am in the process of removing the engine from a 1998 Forester (2.5 DOHC)
I have about everything disconnected. I am down to a couple things before I start prying. I have the manual for a 1999, but thats an 8 bolt tranny, this one is a 4.
In the pic below, what is the bolt that is on the left (as you are looking at it) that goes parallel to the pitch stopper bolt and perpendicular to all the other tranny-to-engine-bolts? (not pictured)
It is just to the left (in the picture) of the pitch stopper.
Additionally, do I have to remove the following? Remember its a 4 bolt.
pitch stopper (rear tranny/engine mount)
Starter and or solenoid
the bolt in question
Im really stuck here, any help would be appreciated. Even more so if I could get the few pages in the manual from someone. I have purchased 3 manuals online, all were supposed to include instructions for the 1998 model, but dont ;(
add ht tp:/ / to the link above, apparently I dont have enough posts to link it. If someone could post it for me that would be great....
