This is not a bearing he is trying to remove, its like a cover plate by the looks of it.

But I would say if he can get a welder he can try the slide hammer idea. all you need to make a simple slide hammer is a piece of 10mm round bar about 300mm long with a washer welded at 1 end. a piece of 50mm round bar about 80mm long with a hole in the guts to fit the 10mm bar through it. then with the weld the slide hammer to the plug your trying to remove.

Even if you just try drilling a hole in it so you can get a bar in it.

its a central guide for the convertor, it shouldn't be an interference fit, it should fit in quit nicely.
I guess thats what we get for aftermarket parts, that is, if its the correct type for the car.

It'll come out, unless its heat welded itself, either way.. its going to unseize from the crank.

hammer, drill, chisels, jimmy bars, welder, it'll come out.


If its that tight and hardened try a grinder on the side NEAR the crank, slice in a grove and lever it from there.

Yeah I agree with you, I have got the feeling from EF_STOCKO that it is in there tight.

Yeah just attack it, it should come loose. Maybe use a grinder and cut a slit accross the front big enough just for a large flat head screw driver to fit in there, and pop it out that way.

Phew!

Welded an old ratchet to the piece, and hammered the ratchet end and it popped out with ease :) :) Did the gearbox myself and aligned it up first go :) Beautiful. Just have to now finish the pedal box and fill her up with some oil, then figure out some wiring.

Thanks again guys. Im not overly cluey with all this and its my first conversion, i didnt exactly want to be drilling/welding through a crankshaft or something haha!!!!

Now, how to go about the wiring so that the starter motor engages??? Anyone know of any articles/docs/posts or anything?

Cheers guys.

Haha i can see how that could happen. But with all the hype about the spigot bearing and what not, i got one from repco for $8, greased her up, aligned the clutch and she fit first go with just me and the trolley jack :) Love it how the T5 is a piece of p!ss to lift compared to the auto.

Im reading up on this wiring thing now, is there any simple way to just make it so it starts, even if its in gear??? Whats all this about resistors and what not????

Resistors are used to fool the AUTO Engine computer into thinking the AUTOBOX IS AT NORMAL TEMPERATURE and something else...

IE - You remove the AUTO and the computer goes and gets itself a little confused as to what it should be doing instead. I've managed to run mine without these resistors mind you. Recommend to make up the resister loom by using the plug off the old auto loom and putting the resisters in and your should end up with a plug with a few inches of sellotaped up wires out the back.

The other plug has the cables that run to the gearbox for REVERSE and NEUTRAL information. The computer will not allow the starter to operate if it is in any other state than NEUTRAL and the REVERSE switch is used for triggering reversing lights and little else.

I cannot remember if being in neutral closes or opens the circuit, but it's an easy one to check if you really want your car being able to operate the starter whilst in gear you can work that out for yourself.......
