This is how it is done

One man job...literally!
Well maybe a little help
Looks like a lot of elbow grease ahead
The heart of it all
Deep into the night
Where do I start?
First is to separate the trans
Needs a little cleaning no?
After powerwash and lots of elbow grease
To be filled with Swepco 201
Original rubber-centered clutch.
New clutch Take 1:
Thought this replacement clutch was enough to handle the 475 ft-lbs of torque. Was I wrong! A good problem to have.
New Clutch Take II. Due to the tremendous torque, the previous clutch kept slipping even in 3rd gear! Had to again swapped out with this heavy duty kevlar clutch.
800 ft-lbs heavy duty pressure plate to go along with the new kevlar clutch
