Hey people,
I have another question. Wondering if the throw out bearing is needing replaced. Reminds me of my old VW bug that made noise with the clutch out in neutral, quiets down some when pushing the clutch in. Hopefuly will last a while, just spent a bunch on the other stuff. Does replacing the clutch and or throw out bearing require pulling the engine? Thanks.

Since I didn't get any answers here, I though I would share what I found elsewhere. Doesn't look to bad.

You will also have to get your flywheel resurfaced, so find a shop that can perform this. You can also replace the seal behind the clutch in the transmission, it's an oil seal and gasket and you could replace your rear crankshaft seal on your engine, it is highly recommended you do both, ,this is the perfect opportunity and the parts are cheap. Also, make sure you get a clutch alignment tool with the clutch, if it doesn't come with it, you will have to get one, it's pretty cheap though. Have fun. Logged

Seems pretty easy 2 hour job maybe, i was just curoius if there was anything to watch for ? The flywheel is a must though,

I was looking for a write-up with pictures maybe to see how others perform this.. cant find anything on any of the zuki forums, which is weird,

thanks Logged

You'll need to support the rear of the engine as the transmission supports the engine.

My suggestion is to go to the Public Library and check out a Haynes or Chilton's Manual on the Samurai. It's free and Haynes (!) is pretty thorough in it's description of the process.

Don't forget to get one of those spline alignment tools for the clutch plate! They are dirt-cheap and very useful! Logged
