Clutch Install!!!!

Ok guys, My clutch will be here on MONDAY!!!! Thank God! I'm also doing this myself. Bummer, but Neato at the same time. Ive never done this before, and have'nt had any Damn, shouldnt have done that or Should have done it the other ways yet.

Been pretty easy going in just a few hours (spread over two days because of work) Got the Battery Tray, Intake, Header, Catalytic Converter out, Both Axles, lower and Driver mount out, and drained the Tranny. I'll go downstairs tomorrow to snap a pic of it all.

I should have written this Step-By-Step process so we could have an official HOW TO: SVTF Clutch Install, but I got lazy.


Anywho, I ended up going with ClutchMasters Stage 3 w/ Clutchmasters Aluminum Flywheel.

14 bell housing bolts.

Draw a chart in the shape of the bell housing. Number in order 1- 14 and draw and X or and O after the number.

X= Cross to the engine
O= Out to the tranny

Use a Marker and number the bolts one at a time when you remove them. The must return to the same place they came out and it is easy to mix them up, and put them in backwards.


(Illinipo taught me this and it works very well)

Also we found it easier to remove the engine/tranny as a whole if you have a picker, instead of dropping the tranny and leaving the motor in.

Not bad, thanks for the help! Also, I dont have a picker so the engine is staying in. Axles were no problem after I got the nuts off (Impact FTW) I dropped the knuckle from the Strut bumped the axle Twice with a dead-Blow, and popped the axles from the tranny and pulled out. Passenger side was more time consuming for the longer axle which uses a separate bearing.


Any suggestions/ Dead ends? Torque Specs?

Got a few pics, not too good, but I broke one thing. damn. its one of the 3 sensors in the tranny. my luck its probably the uber expensive one. I did all of this with no help. just me and my dammy.

I'll do better pics when its going back together. Flywheel is still on, I need a bigger Torx Bit. Like a T55 or something.

Pic time!
