Interesting pattern on the swept area of the flywheel. You're well past the rivets on the clutch disc on the one side; not so bad (relatively speaking) on the other.

I didn't know there was a TSB on the SVT clutch/flywheel.

Anyway, glad to hear you got all the parts to put her back together. Are you back on the road yet?

^^ Oh boy! far too long! Took me a weekend to get the tranny out then the next Friday night (with my neighbors standing around drinking beer while I worked) till late and then the next morning till 1:00pm

Biggest time waster was getting the top bell-housing bolts off. I might have been faster to take the whole engine out.

the axle is so easy to take out - and the access sooooooo limited - for me it was a no brainer. Have you seen the access to the belhouse bolts near the starter?

Also dropping the transmission is very tight without the axles attached so I wouldn't like to do it another way - except that is, pulling the engine and all from the top - that seemed like sense when I was fighting to get it back in.

oh ok i didn't realize you did it for clearance reasons thats what I was wondering. I thought maybe if you didn't pull it out when you pulled the case off it might be damaged or something.

Damn, yeah those were some serious hot spots. I've seen this happen on industrial brakes before, but never a clutch (then again, i've never messed with a clutch). On my machines, it is usually a sign of poor friction material contact, usually caused by foreign material (EDIT: or high spots on the metal surface...remember to resurface those flywheels kiddies!). hmm...

Anyway, glad to hear you're back on the road.

just adding to the story

Not trying to hi-jack, but I thouhgt I would add to this... A buddy of mine and I did this back in like late April/beginning May. The first time we did it took about a solid day. Then while I was off tracking down fluid for the tranny my buddy put the clutch/pressure plate/flywheel back on the crank... He didn't read the clutch disk, where it said "fw side". This led to an unbearable squealing sound. Turns out the little hub on the clutch disk, that from the factory faces the trans actually faces the FW for the LUK Rep Set kit. Guess I should have sent him for fluid instead (since he apparently can’t read.) I was furious!!!!!!!!!! Tore it all apart again flipped the clutch disk so it faced the correct side, installed a new slave (because the hub on the disk chewed into the new one that came in the kit), and had it back together in about 6.5 hours total. The second time is always easier :)...
I didn’t bother unbolting the strut from the knuckle either time. It actually made it easier to get the axles out.
I also took a grinder and ground off a casting nub from the back side of the trans. It kept getting hung up on the cross member, and I just said “Hell with it!” So if anyone takes this on and doesn’t have have a lift, make sure you are up to a long day or weekend full of frustration! It pays off, but is a heck of ride to get there!!!

Here are some pics.. I had to stop taking them because I wanted to get my car done.

















Congrats on pulling it off in the driveway!
