Clutch R&R is Done!

	It is 3:00 but I am done.  I now have a new Clutch, New output
shaft seals, a new CV boot and a clean tranny :-)	Took forever but
it is done.  BTW, I was looking at a BMW 320i on a lift yesterday right in
the middle of putting mine back in and I got Jealous.  That thing had a
Tiny Tranny.  1/3 the size.  I guess when you dont need to stuff 2 extra
differentials in there you can do that. :-)
	Anyhow, I did the Metal Throwout Bearing sleeve, Ne TO bearing,
etc.  Clutch is VERY light now.  Wow.  ANd engages right off the floor.  
	BUT-my shifter is a little off.  Hard to put in reverse, etc.  I
assume I adjust that little bar that is at the front of the tranny from
the shift linkage ( goes from lincage accross tranny, locator arm maybe)
Which way should I try going first.  Reverse is like it wont quite go in
buut then when you go it is in, barely)
	Second-I noticed that my Firewall is cracked, as are m any :-)
The EC issue said that that was caused from clutch mis-adjustment.  WHAt
adjustment?  We dont have a djustable clutches.  Do they mean the actual
	Anyhow, Thankyou to all those that gave me advice through this
process.  Now that I know the car inside out I think I am Finally ready to
tackle this Turbo Conversion on my Other Car.  At lease I can take my time
with it.  L8R
