20. Now the transmission can be re-installed, a couple extra hands will be very helpful at this point. When I installed mine I loosened my motor mounts a little bit, placed a pole jack on the front of the engine and pivoted the front of the engine up to give some more room when installing the transmission. When installing the transmission, line up the dowels, and push the transmission into place, NEVER DRAW THE TRANSMISSION UP TO ENGINE BY TIGHTENING THE BOLTS. ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE TRANSMISSION IS FLUSHWITH THE ENGINE BEFORE TIGHTENING THE BOLTS. Put all the bolts back in place, and torque them down. Then put the bolts back in place on the k-member and torque the, as well.
21. After the transmission is secured, replace all electrical connections that were connected to the transmission.
22. The starter, sway bar, and exhaust can now be reinstalled.
23. Re-install the drive shaft, making sure to align the marks you made prior to removing, tighten and torque the 4 bolts securing the drive shaft.
24. Now, reinstall the clutch cable onto the fork. Making sure you have adjusted it correctly. Ideally, it is recommended to have about an inch, to inch and a half of free play at the pedal. Re-install the cable cover after adjustments are made.
25. Now fill the transmission back up with the recommended type transmission fluid and the proper amount per manufactures specs. I found it easier to fill the transmission through the top where the gear shift is.
26. Reinstall the gearshift arm, base, cover, bezel and knob. Re-connected the battery terminal, and take your car out for a new test drive, and enjoy the awesome new clutch you just installed.
