Ah, OK, I think I see what you mean. I'm probably thinking that because you can't remove the clutch (or can you on the 99?) without the spacer tool in it, that that'd be a problem for the engine.

What's the reason for keeping horizontal, and is that the long way or side-to-side or both? I know the oil strainer is back there, but what else should I watch for?
