Transmission Number
Although most internal repairs to the transmission are beyond the scope of this manual, the transmission number with its identifying code may be important when buying clutch parts, seals, gaskets, and other transmission-related parts for repairs which are covered.
Manual transmissions are identified by a manufacturers stamp and code numbers and letters. The manufacturers stamp is located on the case, just in front of the clutch slave cylinder mounting as shown in Fig. 3-8. The code numbers and letters are located on top of the bell housing as shown in Fig. 3-9. More information on manual transmission codes and their meanings can be found in MANUAL TRANSMISSION AND CLUTCH.

Use a snap-ring plier to remove the snap ring retaining the trigger wheel. Next, use two screwdrivers positioned at opposite sides of the trigger wheel to pry it up as shown in Fig. 4-1 0. Do not lose the rolled pin that fits between the trigger wheel and the distributor shaft.

The impulse generator coil can be removed from the base plate by removing the three mounting screws shown in Fig. 4-11 . Note the insulating ring between the coil and the base plate. Installation is the reverse of removal. Be sure the insulating ring is positioned between the coil and the base plate. Make sure the coil is centred on the base plate before tightening the mounting screws. When installing the trigger wheel, make sure the rolled pin is located between the notch in the distributor shaft and the notch in the trigger wheel.

A workshop trolley jack may also be only applied for lifting the vehicle on the same take-up points described for the lifting platform.
A suitable liner (rubber, wood or plastic) must be used between the jack and vehicle to avoid damage to the undercoating, frame members or floor plate.
Front Take-up Point
Rear Take-up Point
Driving the car white lifted, will destroy the half-shaft-joints because of excessive bending angle.
