  1. Remove the transmission from the vehicle. For more information, refer to the procedures earlier in this section.
  2.  
  3. Mark the clutch assembly position on the flywheel with paint or by a similar method.
  4.  
  5. Install a clutch aligning tool (or drive plate aligner), or equivalent, and remove the pressure plate retaining bolts in a crisscross fashion.
  6.  
  7. Remove the pressure plate assembly from the flywheel.
  8.  
  9. Remove the driven disc from the flywheel.
  10.  


WARNING
Do not allow oil or grease to come in contact with the working face of the clutch driven plate.

  1. Inspect all parts for wear or deep scoring. Replace any parts that show excessive wear.
  2.  

To install:

Due to clutch friction, the engine flywheel becomes scored. Putting a new clutch with an old flywheel can cause chatter and premature clutch plate wear. It is good insurance to remove the flywheel and have it resurfaced at a qualified machine shop. You have spent a lot of time removing the clutch assembly and you do not want to do it twice.

  1. Clean the flywheel surface, the facing surface, and the pressure plate surfaces.
  2.  
  3. Use the clutch aligning tool to install the driven plate assembly onto the flywheel.
  4.  
  5. Align the pressure plate assembly with the flywheel knock pin.
  6.  
  7. Install the pressure plate assembly against the flywheel, then tighten the clutch cover bolts a little at a time in the sequence shown in the illustration. Tighten the pressure plate assembly bolts to 13 ft. lbs. (18 ft. lbs.).
  8.  
  9. Remove the clutch aligning tool from the rear of the engine.
  10.  
  11. Install the transmission, as previously described in this section.
  12.
