I got to change the clutch and flywheel on a 156 2.4jtd soon, I've been looking at the time and the book says 7.7 hours , why does it take so long, I'm thinking of taking the engine and box out it won't be much more time and have more room to change anyone done it this way?

Subframe has to come off on the 2.4 10v which is why its a long job. With a 2 post ramp you can do it quicker than 7.7 but you'd be doing very well to have it done in anything under 6 hours.

Engine out is a mission on one of those as there isn't a detachable engine wiring loom, I'd avoid it if you can.

Going by what I seen............ Its more to do with getting pipes, batt, exhaust section off etc etc etc.

The box fell out once all the bolts and hindering bits had been moved.

Started work at 9 done by 12:30.

The 2.4 being a lump I would imagine the space would be tight and a lot of jiggling and missing skin will come of it.

So engine out is a bad idea, I know of Duncan he done my cambelt and tensioners a while back, tried ringing him a few months back couldn't get hold of him, I'm doing work myself to keep cost down.
