its easy! The easiest way to do it is to remove the engine (which sounds like a lot but its not). First off, unbolt the y-pipe from the bottom of the engine. Then remove the radiator and hoses from the front of the engine bay. Then disconnect the 2 heater hoses, throttle cable, disty wires, alternator wires, main engine harness (2 small plugs), clutch cable and pitch stopper. Then unbolt the tranny and engine from one another, unbolt the engine from the crossmember and pull it out. Replace clutch and stuff it back in just the opposite of removal:banana: Fairly simple really, I can have that engine out of there in 20 minutes:headbang:

Also while that engine is out you will want to replace the valve cover gaskets, oil pan gasket, rear main and oil pump gasket. Chances are they are all leaking.

yeah its easier to remove the motor and pull the clutch with the motor on a hoist. and while your at it do the valve cover gaskets and oil pan gasket.

with the propper tools it shouldn't take more than a saturday.
