Did it my self took about 4 hours on a Saturday not super difficult but you only want to do it once so replace your throw out bearing pilot bearing clutch fork pressure plate clutch disk and have you flywheel machined or replaced

It will take Much longer then 4 hours if you have long tube headers. Your transmission will NOT clear long tubes width wise anywhere so you have 2 options. Unbolt the headers from the heads and spread them out or cut the bastards and weld them back up. I took the easiest of the 2 and cut em and it still had clearance problems. Like he said, do it ALL at the same time. It's a pain and you won't wanna do it again do get it right the first time. I'd suggest changing your quadrant too if you haven't already. The added clutch strength will possibly break it. Just a good safety measure.

Re: Clutch install prices?

i agree with them, i did it myself as well and since mine had no mid pipe i had to cut my pipes off to get the tranny down.. and yeah you won't want to do any of this again for a long while so get everything fixed up. and if got long tubes and try to bring it places to do it they will charge some outrageous price to get it all done.. id just set a day to do it and get it done.

I have a stock exhaust and will be putting an bbk off road X pipe on when I finish I also have the ford racing throw out bearing an pilot bearing with a new 6 bolt flywheel and exedy stage 2 clutch with a new quaderent I have the firewall adjuster but the adjustable clutch cable was a pain in the *** I will buy a non adjustable one

It's my daily driver and I just don't want it up on jacks for a week if I mess up or something

Oh ok well when you do your clutch it will be a good time to switch to your x pipe and it won't take you a week but just a hint go to an auto zone or harbor freight and buy or rent a pilot bearing puller that will strand you if you can't get it out and it is a need to replace but other than that it should just be a Saturday type deal

Here's a even better suggestion. Take 2 pieces of bread. Yes BREAD and cram them in the hole then take a socket just big enough to fit in the hole and hammer it in and it will pop out. It sounds ridiculous but it seriously works.

Grease and a wooden dow rod work as well.
Used to have clutches replaced for $150 labor. Replaced auto's for less then $200 too.

About the clutch cable. I bought the Steeda model with the quadrant. Tossed the stock. Adjusting is a breeze and don't have to go under car to adjust. Clutch is heavier though.
