I need to take the clutch off my motor, and it seems like i need some way to keep the flywheel from moving. i see that there are 2 BMW tools that can be used on m10s, 112160 and 112140. is there a difference? is there some other way?

just clamp it onto the flywheel on the right side of the motor and it will wedge up against the block when you try to remove the flywheel and pressure plate bolts.

you can cut a section of the starter ring off (about 2 inches should do) and cuta v notch in one end. But a bolt into one of the tapped holes for the belhousing and rest the V on the bolt with the teeth engaged to the current flywheel. Its fast and cheap- if you have a jusnk flywheel.

or, if you don't have one, try using a hammer. I just pulled my engine and took off the pressure plate without any trouble (engine compression and a good knock were enough). The flywheel was another problem. I had the engine lying on it's exhaust side (on wood blocks), jammed the flywheel with a screwdriver (one end in a tooth, the handle on the ground, supported by my foot -- in plane, not perpendicular to the flywheel), and hammered on the wrench until it came loose. a few good whacks was all it took.

getting it back on will be another story...

I use a roundie rear bumper bracket. I punched out the insert nuts on the bumper bracket so it is essentially a heavy metal bar with two bends and three holes.

I then use one 8mm bolt in the bellhousing mount hole of the block, and another bolt in the clutch mounting hole. Works great.

Never had a problem w/ the clutch bolts. I just use the long handles 3/8 drive and make sure I'm pulling across the face of the pressure plate.
