What is the best way to replace the clutch with the engine installed?

remove the body?

I hate Mini flywheels. I hate removing them even more. Got Greg's 998 A+ engine and transmission up on the bench and got the flywheel puller hooked up and been tightening and beating and tightening and beating for a while and nothing.
Hasn't popped yet. I'll take a break and go back at it later. I hate Mini flywheels.

The problem is that you have the sequence wrong - Beat then tighten then beat. This way you get to beat more and tighten less  Grin

Did you try to remove that flywheel before ??

I tried removing that flywheel once before while it was still in the car. Never could get it off. Gave up and just put a new throw out bearing in it. Put it back together and drove the car for another couple years until we took the car apart to do the resto.

I am getting one of these for the bug project to remove the flywheel gland nut and rear brake drum nuts. I wonder if this would work on a Mini?

That operation is how I wound up with a Craftsman 3/4" sliding t-bar at the Carlisle swap meet for $3.   When I got the tool the end had about a 20 degree bend in it from being overtorqued removing a VW Bug rear axle nut.

and as it's Craftsman, I took it in and got a new one.  Wink

As to pulling the flywheel, I had success with the tool I bought from Mini City back in 1995.  Turned out it wasn't the clutch, but I'd snapped a driveshaft after all.

When I get back to Texas I can loan it out if need be.
