I can cut and drill, but I don't know how to weld. But I'll look at your picture to see if I can build something similar without welding.
I'm leaning towards just leaving the IMSB alone (not removing the grease seal), it'll save me from building an engine support, camshaft lock,
getting new IMSB flange bolts, rubber seals, ...etc.

How difficult is replacing the AOS from under the car with the engine lowered a couple of inches? Can it all be done without removing starter, alternator,
intake manifold, ...etc?

BTW. The dual mass flywheel arrived. 25.5 hours from ordering online to arriving at my door. It is really heavy compared to the AASCO, I'll have to
get out the bathroom scale to know the difference.

I found the engine support tool here for $193: https://www.handsontools.com/SIR-Too...r_p_62893.html
I'd rather make it myself and save the $200 but welding is a bit beyond my scope as well. Maybe we can design one that can be bolted together rather than welded.

There is definitely no magic to it, no welding required.

You could easily bolt the pieces together, and have it work perfectly well.

This was under $30 in steel from the hardware store (way overpriced in small sections).

I just welded it because I have a welder and it was easy to zap it together.

My bathroom scale says the AASCO LWFW with flywheel bolts weigh 13 lbs. The Sachs pressure plate + clutch also weigh 13 lbs. The LuK DMF024 without flywheel bolts weighs 29lbs.

Huge difference. Someone should us make a dual mass light weight flywheel!

I found an example of an engine support took that is bolted together here:

You just need a piece of angle iron and a cutting torch to make an engine support.

I just used a couple of jack stands with a 2x10 to support the engine while I was replacing the IMSB. The metal brace would have been nice - but not necessary.
