RE: C-GT clutch slave cylinder removal???

	Don't know if this will get to you before you finish the clutch
job, but here it is anyways...

	The coupe should be similar to the 4kq.  The slave is held in
with a roll pin.  There is also
	a piece of wire, similar to welding rod, that goes through the
roll pin, and acts like a spring
	safety of sorts.  Remove this then remove the roll pin.  The
slave can then be tapped out.
	I believe it has ears that you can pry off of if necessary.  To
remove the roll pin,   I use an
	appropriately size pin punch, in a socket, on an extension, out
throught the tierod area
	and smack it with a mallet.

	As for the tie rod/rack assembly.  As you've probably found, you
can't get the tie rods off
	just by removing the nuts from their through bolts.  (The bolts
are actually studs pressed
	into a plate.  Similar to the ball joint mountings.)  There
isn't enough clearance in the
	bracket to remove the studs/plate.  Instead, you need to remove
the tie rod bracket from
	the steering rack.  Remove the two nuts from below, and then
remove the bolts.  The rack
	is normally threaded, so I wouldn't impact the bolts until you
have the nuts off...
