WOW, thats alot of time.

I was just looking at the flat rate time for replacing the clutch in the 951. The time is 15.6 hrs!!!!! does it "really" take that long? This is looking more like a weekend project rather than an after work project...

It can take that amount of time and then some. Basically the bulk of the extra time on the Turbo is the crossover pipe. If you have never had it off before then be ready for a fight. You have to disconnect at the headers, and at the turbocharger. The turbocharger side is a real PITA!

Even the NA takes arounf 11 hours or so. I guess they never planned on the clutches outlasting the cars.

Looking through the little hole in the bellhousing while the clutch is being depressed. I see some slop between the release fork and pivot shaft.
I see the clutch fork bearings are listed as available but what about the shaft that they turn on? Are these usually worn and need replaced or is it just the bearings that wear.

No the pivot shaft should be fine, just get new needle bearings. You may also need a new release fork if its too badly grooved on the ends.

Yep. The whole job is a PITA, Scott just pointed out the most fun part. A helper will REALLY come in handy, too.
