another kudo to the wealth of info on USMB !
Hello all. Need to know how long it takes to replace clutch in 82 Brat. I presume removing front axles, rear driveshaft , remove trans, replace clutch , pressure plate, bearing, and re-install.
Suggestions, tips, time estimate?
thanks in advance, PK

so then I drain radiator, remove radiator/hoses, and pull motor forward enough to replace it that way?
p.s. I dont stop for beer, I wear a two-can hat (jk)

The real biotch is, I sold the Brat over the weekend, and I am supposed to drive it out to the buyer Friday. I just emailed him the news.
(maybe it is destiny - and I am really supposed to keep my Brat, sit inside and apologize for attempting to sell her, and embrace the moment with a group dash hug)

Also - since this is an 82, you have the 200mm clutch stock. Unless it's been upgraded already?? I know what the 200mm is like with big tires..... VERY BAD. The 225mm from 83 and up 4WD's is the one you really want. For that you will need the 83 and up 4WD flywheel tho.... better ask the new owner which one he wants.....

Bought new clutch kit with pressure plate throwout, etc. (Kragen). Clutch is correct. HOWEVER, the pressure plate is wrong??? The original's surface sticks out past its mount toward the flywheel, but the new one does not - it is flush with the mount. So it wont reach the flywheel surface.
I returned it and ordered different part number, same application from PepBros. Is there more than one type pressure plate? I'm thinking maybe they sold me a 1600 kit? Is there difference between 1600 and 1800 kits?
