Trying to make my brick a turbobricks. I pulled the turbo engine from the parts car without the gearbox and I kind of messed up pulling the engine, pulling it up/forward instead of just forward and I damaged the clutch. I hope you can make out what it is despite the sucky image.

Is this very sensitive or can I just kind of bend it back and it'll be good to go?

it isn't good but if your able to bend it back it should be ok. is it just the one? because if it is youll be ok i bent one of mine barely on my spec stage 3(not as bad as yours).....i havent been able to feel a difference. but if you drive the car and you get some slippage or poor engagement you'll know why.

I'll bend it back as well as I can. Or I can just steal the clutch assembly from the B23 I have laying around for peace of mind but I'm kind of afraid of the clutch centering process.

Is that going to be B230ET with M47?

B230ET with a M46 actually which I'm sure is even worse. I'll have the M47 as a backup, I'm kind of looking forward to being able to kill a trans. :)

Good luck bending it back. Isn't a new pressure plate, like, $40?

M46 is stronger than M47.

.

Uhh, given that he apparently tried to seperate the motor and trans by pulling them SIDEWAYS, and it did that to the pressure plate, chances are nothing is centered any more.

That pressure plate is ****ed, period. Get a new one. Centering the disc is not rocket surgery.

It is so messed up I'd be double checking that the input shaft bearing on the trans is ok. That thing got raped.

I did bend it back by hitting it with a hammer, I'm just not sure if it'll be working after this.

I'm still pretty confused about how this happened at all. Even if you took the transmission out at an angle, it could scrape, but the input shaft wouldnt be able to grab like that. The input shaft must have been acting like a lever on that finger, like 30+ or something between the engine and trans.

I lifted the engine enough to clear all the engine mounts then I pulled and pried a bit until it came loose from the transmission. I don't see how else I could do this.

Meh, I just smashed it back in position with a sledge and it seems fine now. Screw precision.

he pulled the motor, not the trans. and i think he tried pulling up and out, before he pulled out then up. i think idk.

Weight of the trans on the finger gave it the finger.
