there are ways to lift the engine w/o having to use a cherry picker. as for help, i suggest you smooth-talk some people on the board near your area to help you with your clutch, and donate all the money you save on the clutch replacement to the board. take a board member to dinner and he/she'll im sure will help you. i would. (considering i knew how to do it myself)
hello newbie to the board... may I humble suggest (while admittedly assuming) your skill level. That if you had time and patience to do this, some basic tools, and a friend or two that you'all could spend a day doing it and it end up fine and done correctly.
size of sockets that I remember needing to do it minimalistic style:
shallow and deep socket sizes: 10(S),11(?),12(S),14(S&D),16(?),17(S)mm's
IF you have the spare $ I'd also recomend the craftsman wabble sockets.
A jack to cradle the tranny and help with the tilting of it away from engine, etc.
I know for a fact that several of us could talk you thru this over the phone.... think of it as a "tech-help call line for subie maitnance" LOL
