Roundbouts and swings ...... I'd leave the engine in place ... I've done both jobs in the past.

edit : Time - lazy diy for a clutch took me a Saturday 09:00 to 16:00 and 10:00 to 12:30 hrs on Sunday, as I say very lazy but then I am retired and under no pressure of time.
Timing belt usually takes me four hours on the same basis as above  Heart

Thanks Geoff... Smile 
I've plenty of time as this is a project car,

Did you use a manual for information on the clutch change,
or another source...

I've just got a full clutch kit on eBay for £19... Big Grin

I think it's best,
to avoid messing about with fuel,exhaust,cooling etc...

I used the Haynes manual as a reference for both of these jobs.

Even if you are experienced it is always worth a quick read before doing a job for the first time on a new / different vehicle as indvertent error on valve timing can prove rather expensive.

There is a Haynes Manual for free download on this site, have a search.

Whilst at it replace the aux belt they only have a short service interval premature failure can take out the entire engine if unlucky.

Have fun it isn't a tough job.
