Rebuilt Motor

Well getting my truck back monday after being at the shop for a week. Can't wait only bad thing it mech says I need a clutch now. All the new power I have, he says he can hear the clutch slipping in overdrive when you floor it. Gonna be doing the work myself, and was curious if anyone new of any good writiups on doing it. I have done a clutch swap on a 96 cobra about 6 years ago with a buddy but nothing this big and heavy, so looking for pointers and such. thanks

i did my clutch couple months ago.. the best thing u can buy is a floor jack transmission adapter or transmission jack.. and use a rachet strap. dont separate the transfer from trans, unless u want to.. but balancing a transfercase on a jack is a b**ch

i found out FORD recommends that you split the t-case & trany they have had some issues with the trany cracking when you remove them together & the crack create a vibration

a friend of friend did his clutch in an 01 & had a vibration so he called FORD & told them what he did & the first thing they asked him was did he separate the two....he wound up getting a new trany & installing it with his new clutch & no more vibration

just thought id pass that along

where would the tranny crack? everyone i talk to says leave them together, makes it easier because the balance on the jack better and saves time.

i would call ford & maybe a couple of trany shops see what they say
i dont know all the details on the cracked trany but the ford dealer that he talked to said they see it a lot. people do there own clutch r&r & then have a vibration problem.

I just don't see how leaving the trans case on makes it balance out better. seems like it would make it heavier and more weight to one side. I know when I dropped my auto trans on my 4x4 ranger I pulled the trans case first and wasn't too bad a job. I know the 250's case is bigger and heavier but will have a jack to help.

All told between xfer case and trans, you're looking at ~450lbs. Nothing you do is going to make it light. The height of the transmission will not allow it to come out from under a stock truck, so either use a lift or jack up one side of the truck, unless the truck is lifted. Other than the weight and size of this stuff, it's pretty standard. Make sure you resurface/replace your flywheel. Total job time is 4-5 hours.

My truck is not stock height but not way up in the air by no means. I may just get her up on some 4x4s for lil extra room. Not sure If I should just go ahead and get a new flywheel or have this one resurf. wish 230k on the truck don't know if it has ever been changed out already or not. Just gotta find me a trans jack to borrow and will be good to go.
