I just finished the clutch replacement in my race car and it can be done in a couple of hours by someone that has done it in the past. For a first timer figure a weekend possibly? The major steps are:
- Gather all the parts including new shift bushings, two shift set screws, new engine tin seals, clutch disk alignment tool, exhaust gaskets and a new trans ground strap possibly.
- Clean the underside very well, possibly twice.
- Unhook the batt neg cable.
- Unfasten the bolt Dave mentioned as it is easier to get to with the car on the ground.
- Put the car on stands as high as safely possible.
- Unhook clutch cable
- Unhook shift linkage
- Remove muffler
- Loosen front engine mount bolts so engine can pivot slightly
- Loosen rear trans mount bolts, insert jack at rear under trans
- Lower trans from rear slightly and set rear of engine case on a jack stand
- Unhook starter wires
- Unbolt bell housing and tilt front of it upwards as you...
- Slide trans back far enough to remove clutch disk and pressure plate. You do not need to unhook CV joints
- Assembly is reverse.
