'85 318i Project...Help
I am currently in the middle of replacing many of the seals and gaskets on my 1985 318i, but I have hit a couple of bumps. I am replacing my water pump and cannot figure out how to remove the fan and clutch assembly from the pulley that is covering the water pump. Do I need a special tool to stabilize it or can a jimmy rig something? I am also trying to take the oil pan off, upper and lower seals are shot; I have removed all the obvious nuts and bolts but the upper part will not come off. Do I need to remove the plate that covers the front part of the trannie? It appears to have special bolt heads. The book I am using claims to plainly tell me how to do all of this, but none of us can figure it out. Please help me if you can. Thanks.
