REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 through 18
- Support the engine and remove the transmission.
- Disconnect the clutch fork pushrod and spring.
- Remove the flywheel housing.
- Slide the clutch fork from the ball stud and remove the fork from the dust boot. The ball stud is threaded into the clutch housing and may be replaced, if necessary.
- Install an alignment tool to support the clutch assembly during removal. Mark the flywheel and clutch cover for reinstallation, if they are not already matchmarked.
- Loosen the clutch-to-flywheel attaching bolts evenly, one turn at a time, until spring pressure is released. Remove the bolts and clutch assembly.
- Clean the pressure plate and flywheel face.
- Support the clutch disc and pressure plate with an alignment tool. The driven disc is installed with the damper springs on the transmission side. On some 1967 6-cylinder engines, the clutch disc is installed in a reverse manner with the damper springs to the flywheel side.
- Turn the clutch assembly until the mark on the cover lines up with the mark on the flywheel, then install the bolts. Tighten them down evenly and gradually to avoid distortion.
- Remove the alignment tool.
- Lubricate the ball socket and fork fingers at the release bearing end with high melting-point grease. Lubricate the recess on the inside of the throwout bearing and fork groove with a light coat of graphite grease.
- Install the clutch fork and dust boot into the housing. Install the throwout bearing to the fork. Install the flywheel housing. Install the transmission.
- Connect the fork pushrod and spring. Lubricate the spring and pushrod ends.
- Adjust the shift linkage and clutch pedal free-play.
