Need some help

I've tried searching, but I cannot find a step by step procedure on how to change out this clutch. My buddy is actually doing the work for me and he is telling me that when he put everything back together, that the throwout bearing comes off the tranny fork when it's pushed far enough to make up for the 1/2" thinner flywheel. Has anyone else had this issue? Any thoughts on why this would happen?

I bought all the parts recommended (thanks EdsLex!):

N/A Supra flywheel 13405-46040
Flywheel bolts (X8) 90910-02103
Slave cyl push rod 31473-14030
N/A sprung clutch disc 31250-30391-84
Pilot bearing 90363-12002-77
Release bearing 31230-22101
Rear main seal 90311-90006
Pressure plate 31210-30261-84

I'd really like to get the car back on the road, so any help is much appeciated!

I would also like my unanswered question of which way does the spring pack face on the clutch disk.

I put the assembly together on my counter, the disk will sit on the flywheel either way and the disk will mate to the pressure plate either way. Flipping the disk changes the offset of the splined hub so it has to be one way or another.

Ok so a friend showed up...we put two bolts into the flywheel then held the flywheel up and set the disk on there both ways. Yeah its obvious. The spring pack hits the bolt heads so much that the disk doesnt even touch the flywheel.

Clutch pack out towards the pressure plate. That is the answer.

Montag. Also what is the bare minimum of stuff that needs to be removed for this to be done? Does the exhaust manifold actually need to be undone? (Or does it make things significantly easier to do so?) I've heard people referencing loosening the engine mounts but upon reading the service manual I see no reference to it...

Can some one give me a basic rundown of what they actually did/removed to replace the clutch? I'm not really down with removing pretty much the entire exhaust system if I dont have to.

When i did the clutch in mine I removed the driveshaft and exhaust (including manifold back to the axle), a number of plastic panels, and i believe the starter. Use a good impact and extensions and you can have everything torn down quite quickly. I never loosened my engine mounts but I did take a hammer to the tunnel after dropping the transmission, you'll see that it is quite a tight fit when you try to get spline into your new clutch assembly.

Did you get yourself a new rear main seal?

Smart lady.

Since I didn't follow up on the other thread and only read this page I'm guessing your issue all this time was the clutch/ pressure plate?
