WARNING
Do not allow grease or oil to get on any of the disc, pressure plate, or flywheel surfaces.

  1. Remove the transmission from the car as previously outlined.
  2.  
  3. Place some matchmarks on the clutch cover and flywheel.
  4.  
  5. Loosen the clutch plate retaining bolts one turn at a time until the spring tension is released.
  6.  

If the screws are released too fast, the clutch assembly will fly apart, causing possible injury or loss of parts.

  1. Remove the retaining bolts and remove the clutch cover and disc from the bellhousing.
  2.  
  3. Unfasten the release fork bearing clips. Withdraw the release bearing hub, complete with the release bearing.
  4.  
  5. Remove the tension spring from the clutch linkage.
  6.  
  7. Remove the release fork and support.
  8.  
  9. Inspect the parts for wear or deterioration. Replace parts as required.
  10.  

It should be noted that the pilot bearing (pressed into the flywheel) may have to be replaced if it is showing any signs of heat disfiguring or any other sort of damage. If the pilot bearing is to be removed, it is recommended that a special pilot bearing removal tool be used. This tool can be purchased or rented at any reputable parts house. The pilot bearing may also be removed by removing the flywheel and driving the pilot bearing out of the flywheel from the back side of the flywheel.

  1. Installation is performed in the reverse order of removal. Several points should be noted, however:
  2.  
    1. Be sure to align the matchmarks on the clutch cover and pressure plate which were made during disassembly.
    2.  
    3. Apply a thin coating of multipurpose grease to the release bearing hub and release fork contact points. Also, pack the groove inside the clutch hub with multipurpose grease.
    4.  
    5. Center the clutch disc by using a clutch pilot tool or an old input shaft . Insert the pilot into the end of the input shaft front bearing and bolt the clutch to the flywheel.
    6.  


Bolt the clutch assembly to the flywheel in two or three stages, evenly and to the torque specified in the chart below.

    1. Adjust the clutch as outlined earlier in this section.
    2.
