I think I watched Jurgen and Van Svenson's tutorial several times each prior to picking up the first wrench, thanks guys!!!!

Rear main seal and pilot bearing removal is next. I did purchase the proper pilot bearing removal tool a while back and the Arnnworx rear main seal insertion tool arrived over the weekend (just another excuse to buy good tools...).

BTW: It was a real bugger removing the bellhousing, partially because I missed one of the starter cable clamps located near the top drivers side and offset from the reference sensor mounting plate. Imagine my surprise when I pulled the clutch and found this:

There's still some meat left but the throwout bearing was tired and noisy. Besides, the torque tube was whining but I guess after 35yrs and 133k miles, I'd be whining too...
