I may have obscured my own question by posting right after it... but I'm still looking for advice on this...

I use blue locktite on pressure plate bolts. Proper torque is a must.

Hi all, I have a question. No one mentions removing coolant lines but the coolant reservoir is attached to the left motor mount. If you only remove the pin from that mount when you tilt the engine doesn't it pull on all those coolant lines? Just confused why there is no mention of this.
thanks!

You have to remove the bolts holding the coolant mount to the transmission.

Ack!!

I thought I tried to get the "removetran2006elise.pdf" file back on the 15th but was not on my computer at the time so I saved the link. I tried it today and its not working. Is that a temp issue or ... anyone have the file so I can save it?

MOROSO oil pan not allowing engine to get low enough?

Thanks kfennell. I went ahead and disconnected coolant lines anyway (had to drain coolant when disconnecting turbo anyway. Another nightmare has reared it's head. My car has a Moroso baffled oil pan and I believe it is keeping me from lowering the engine enough to get the trans out. I attached some pictures. You can see the oil pan is hitting the lower control arm (right side) at about the point that the rear of the transmission needs to come forward a bit to clear the frame. (pic attached.) I'm pretty darn sure it's not low enough (the transmission) to be able to pull it off yet unless I only need like an inch and a half clearance on the left side of it to yank it off and drop it down (see third pic.) Has anyone else had this issue? Am I gonna need to take off that darn oil pan? Thanks in advance.
Teague.

Well that's irritating. My BOE TOC pan didn't have this issue thankfully. I'm actually kinda shocked any oil pan is that close to the suspension.

Clearance looks dodgy to me from your photos. It's not enough to barely wiggle it out. you have to have a reasonably straight shot back in to avoid putting torque on the clutch plate.
