Its done. What an exhausting day.

Also my flywheel springs were SHOT. There was so much play in the face of the flywheel.

I still need to adjust the master cylinder pushrod back out.

Dude, the clutch works awesome. I have a bad transmission. I drove on a bad OEM clutch (failing pressure plate, clutch wouldnt disengage all the way) for over a month. I wrecked my transmission doing so. Its not the new clutchs' fault. Many aspects of driving improved quite a bit after the swap...I just waited too long.

Removing the pilot bearing from the crank and removing the dowel pins from the old flywheel. Those were the only "problems" at all. The bolt for the bracket from the bottom of the trans to the Y-pipe was rusted but a cutting wheel fixed that...

It might be worth the extra few dollars for new dowel pins unless you have a good acetylene torch.

no problems installing at all. I've done motor swaps, and installed turbos and what not, so i knew this was going to be a tedious job, it's not HARD, but its difficult with the room you have underneath the car, you definitely need a few friends to help you.
if you need help or info PM me, where you located if your close maybe I could help you out. good luck! don't get discouraged, the end result is awesome, i missed driving a manual is300
