It is easiest if you pull the jackshaft and front driveshaft, disconnect and drop the trans. I can do a clutch in about 2 hours now doing it like that and it really gives plenty of room afterthe trans is out of the way.

Great decission to go with the PW HD clutch. You will probably not have to replace the clutch again for many years... My (PW) trail zook clutch is now probably 6-7 years old and still going strong.

I got a new flywheel from rockauto.com this summer and it works fine, except that it was missing the timing marks, but the dremel tool care that of that.

Dont forget to unplug the pigtails for the 5th gear/reverse sensors.

Yea,I remembered that.We have the trans out and my throw out bearing is trashed! Haven't got the clutch out yet. I'm 2hrs in so far but a lot further than i thought I'd be,lol. It's sandwich time right now! So far so good!

well,bad news!Got my clutch done today and it took about 6 hrs but although I needed the new flywheel & both bearings were shot my clutch wasnt in that bad of shape but I do like the PW clutch! After getting all back togethger that god awful noise I had was still there!!My buddy rode with me this time and he said no doubt its in my tranny!!!He said it sounded like a bad bearing ?Ok,so my next question,how much trouble is it to rebuild my tranny myself ????I can get a kit from Low Range,which is where I have been getting all my parts,for $129 but a rebuilt tranny with a core is almost $1000!!!

thats a bummer man.. did you also replace the pilot bearing? does the sound go away when clutch is out? You can figure out which bearing it is by putting the t-case in neutral and shifting the through the tranny gears while reving. listen for the loudest one, its probably 5th.. if it shifts smooth you can buy just the gears but then again if youre going in there you might as well spend the extra 45 bucks and replace the syncros!

reason it cost so much for a rebuilt one is that it's a lot of labor involved. You can do it yourself but take your time and don't cut any corners. What kind of noise is it making?
