Look under the dash at your clutch pedal, there is a heavy gauge spring about 3" to 4" long. Take that spring out or the clutch pedal will stick to the floor. It's easy don't sweat it, if you need to PM me your cell number and I'll send you a pic of my spring I took out.

the clutch is in finally!!!! i was able to figure out which spring it was too, thanks. it will take some getting used to now. way nicer clutch pedal feel now. over all time took me probaly 10 hrs. the hardest part was getting the tranny back on the engine. had a hard time getting it lined up right. then i got smart and made some guide pins (found some long bolts that were the same thread, cut the heads off, and slid the tranny on those) made it alot easier to get it aligned. have not drivin with the clutch for more than 20 minutes but so far i like it. south bend says to wait 750 miles for break in before heavy use. i used the middle rated clutch 350 hp- 750lbft clutch, its the 1944-60k one.
