Default Clutch Change Special Tools, N00b Style (pics)

Being a poor N00b, and needing?? to put in a Lightweight flywheel and Exedy Sport, I decided to redefine a few Subaru special tools. My apologies for the slight copyright violation....

That's awesome! I wouldn't call it n00b, but rather necessity is the mother of invention.

Great job. Who says you need 1000 bux worth of tools? Stirling effort. I will say that some tools you cant go without. Like an engine hoist. I built one out of wood, and it broke.
I then build another one out of 4x2 and half rounds. It worked perfectly but the fence it was bolted to is now bent.

Paint can top. Fits perfect, but I can't take credit for it, I read it on NASIOC first.

Oh, and don't push it in too hard, it fits almost too good.

The paint can top is the only one I haven't done. I'll have to remember that. Of course when we did my clutch we just pulled the engine since we didn't want to deal with removing the front axles.

Hey, I did the same thing! Now I have a 5spd FWD Leggy tranny in my '99 mated to my Exedy stg 1 clutch. The AWD 5spd is stuck in 5th gear so this is my temp tranny. I'll be saving up to rebuld my tranny with RA gears, new syncros, shims, 4.444 final drive, Cusco 1way LSD front, and 20kg/100rpm center viscous diff (looking at $5,000 total).

After taking off the clutch, I was able to hang onto the flywheel by threading one of the clutch bolts back in and looping a bit of wire around it and the stud coming out of the engine. Certainly no need to buy any tools for that.

If you're looking for something to plug the axle holes in the transmission find yourself some of these 1-11/16x1-13/32 rubber stoppers from Lowes.

Did you use "Engine Support Assy" after removing the pitching stopper as manual refers?
May not using it f*ck up liberty MY06 style mounts?
