- Remove the transmission.

- Remove the clutch fork and release bearing assembly.
- Matchmark the clutch cover and flywheel for installation reference.
- Remove the pressure plate retaining bolts, loosening them evenly so the clutch cover will not be distorted.
- Pull the pressure plate assembly clear of the flywheel and, while supporting the pressure plate, slide the clutch disc from between the flywheel and pressure plate.
- Thoroughly clean all working surfaces of the flywheel and pressure plate.
- Grease radius at back of bushing.
- Rotate clutch cover and pressure plate assembly for maximum clearance between flywheel and frame crossmember if crossmember was not removed during clutch removal.
- Tilt top edge of clutch cover and pressure plate assembly back and move it up into the clutch housing. Support the clutch cover and pressure plate assembly and slide clutch disc into position.
- Position clutch disc and plate against flywheel and insert clutch alignment tool through clutch disc hub and into main drive pilot bearing.
- Rotate clutch cover until the punch marks on cover and flywheel line up.
- Bolt the pressure plate loosely to flywheel. Tighten the bolts a few turns at a time, in progression, until tight. Then tighten the 5 / 9 in. bolts to 13 ft. lbs. (27 Nm) and the 3 / 1 in. bolts to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
