You mave have downshifted into a lower gear than anticipated. Clutch would have turned way more rpm's than it can handle.

Interesting that I find this now...

My car is currently still on stands at my buddies house from a clutch replacement..

Took us a couple days real time to get the trans out (we pulled the axels out of the trans but not completely off the car, and dropped the front sub frame for extra clearance / easy of getting to bolts.

Put it all back together and took it for a test drive and when I parked it I was pissing fluid out the trans... Got scared that it was trans fluid which would mean the input shaft seal was torn and would probably have been annoyingly hard to replace..

we dropped the trans a second time in a couple hours and realized it was a leaking slave cylinder... we chopped it up as defective and I talked to spec about it... since I don't have time to wait around for them to see if it was defective or not I just bought a new slave and clutch disc (since fluid got on the disc and wasn't reusable) and put all the new stuff back in...

waiting till tomorrow for new sub frame bolts to arrive (old ones were fubar) and should just need to bolt in those 6 and then drop the car and go..

spec thinks that we installed the clutch wrong by doing the same thing blkSVT's friend did (putting the clutch disc in backwards (same situation I was at work and my friends were the ones who put all that in)). My friends say they tried to put in backwards and it just wasn't physically possible to get the pressure plate bolts in so I'm doubting that was what happened. Planning on boxing up the 'defective' slave cyl and the soiled clutch disc tonight and shipping them back out to spec for assessment.

I see the wooden engine support. How did you attach it to the engine? Just the factory hook or in two spots. Did it roatate and hit anything?

Just a little off topic, but I was reading that when you change the clutch slave you have to replace the big o-ring also, otherwise you would leak fluid. Does anyone know the size or part number for this o-ring?

my clutch

i know this thread is old, but i just replaced my clutch on my svt and am now trying to re-install the trans. it seems that the back end where the axles meet is getting caught on the sub frame. any hints/ ideas? or should i remove the subframe? (i really don't want to.) thanks.
