I need to replace the clutch in my 87 Wagon.I am getting a Luk kit for it today.I am going with a luk upon the advice of Chef_Tim.I am gonna try dropping the trannyand pulling it back instead of pulling the motor.I won't have a chance to get it all done in one day since I have to schedule it around two full time jobs.Any hints or suggestions or tools I will need to have would be very appreciated.Thanks.Dave

bout the only thing i can think of is making sure you have your flywheel machined.

essential step, sometimes overlooked.
makes it nice and flat again instead of blue and ripply.

if you get really desperate im only about 4 hours east of you

If you don't have the flywheel machined, does that shorten the life of the new clutch?

make SURE SURE you use that clutch alignment tool to be very very centered with that pilot bearing or you will have an impossible time trying to put that tranny back in!
