    I'm pulling the tranny off my b16, with the engine still in the CRX and I noticed that I might not have the clearance to get it out :mad:. It looks like the differential housing will hit the LCA mounting point on the rear cross member. Because of the pulleys on the other side of the engine, I can't lower the tranny side down at all. It looks like I have about 1" of clearance if I take off the filler bolt.

    Does anyone know how long the dowel pins that align the transmission to the engine are? They're the determining factor on whether or not I have to pull the whole goddamn engine.

    a little less than an inch. I'd say maybe.75"..but you'd actually be dealing with half because half is usually stuck in the block or transmission.

    Really, that short? Ok, looks like tomorrow I'll have a go at it and see if I can get the dam thing off.
