So these came in the Luk clutch kit.

I figure the plastic thing is used as the frst 2 special tools from the manual (combination clutch alignment shaft and remover handle).

I am not sure about the bearing. It does not look like the clutch release bearing or clutch pilot bearing from the manual.

And what is up with the Perfection Clutch HT-01?

Hmm, looked up prices. The ring gear holder is about $120. That seems a bit expensive.

The more I look at those pictures of that clutch disk and pressure plate, the more I am convinced it's not the correct item for your Insight. Here are some pictures a genuine Exedy KHC11 clutch kit.

The pilot bearing you have is wrong. Also, the your clutch disk alignment tool doesn't look right.

The relationship between the three dowel pin holes and the six mounting bolt holes on your pressure plate don't look correct.

Well I setup the return for the clutch with RockAuto.

Hopefully there will not be any more problems with this adventure. With the QuickJack I lost track of how many weeks and phone calls that took to get right with Home Depot.

I got suggestions to just get a 32mm socket, but I got a set of 1/2 inch drive impact sockets, some impact wobble extensions and a u-joint adapter thing. The wobbles were useful.

When I went to empty the transmission, I saw this weird bolt. It turned out that a 3/8 inch drive fit it. It would not move with my small 3/8 ratchet wrench, so I got a 1/2 inch to 3/8 inch adapter. And I picked up something called PB Blaster I saw mentioned in some post.

I got to the last step and yanked on the transmission, but it would not move. Maybe I missed a step.

In an earlier post you can see I got the top transmission mount.

Here are the under trans bolts removed:

I did not get a picture of the upper transmission bolt on the engine side because it is hard to see. But believe me I removed it, it was time consuming.

I also got the transmission shift things off after I managed to get the cotter pins out.

And I got the cv axles out too.

I will look at the manual again tomorrow. I am done for the day.

That's the stock transmission drain bolt. They are a pain in the rear to break loose, especially on rusty cars. When I did trans fluid on @EggEnjoyer's car before we drove it 2700mi home, when it broke loose my knuckle met the concrete with great speed. OOF

I just saw your most recent post. When I was just rebuilding my citrus, I could not get the trans to separate from the motor. This is because the trans corrodes and welds itself to the dowel pins. I had the benefit of having the engine out of the car, so I used a prybar on the top of the trans and pryed them apart.

It was somewhere in this area, but that doesn't really help you. Sorry.

There are six bolts that hold the transmission to the engine. The upper four bolts have 17mm hex heads and the two bottom ones have 14mm heads.

The trickiest one is high up on the back side of the engine under the exhaust manifold section of the head.

FadedBlue, you have my phone number. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions while working on your Insight.

Six bolts. Hopefully the correct 6 bolts.
