New Clutch.

Going to put my new clutch in next weekend, just wondering if anyone has any tips about doing this. I have two friends that are going to help so I dont think it will go to bad. I wish I had a trans jack tough.

Oh well, if anyone has any pointers just let me no. Thanx.

Just finished installing one in my 97 f350. Did not intall a new dual mass flywheel, went with a solid flywheel and clutch assembly. Works just fine except that it is a little jumpy when engaging the clutch. If keeping the truck recommend replacing with dualmass again. Mine is sold and a new 09' f-350 is on the way. Installation is just like any other clutch replacement, a pain in the a--. For tranny removal plan on loosening the exhaust up from the turbo, things get a little tight.

There is 1 bolt up by the downpipe, it can be a pain to get out. You don't have to remove the DP but if your not using a trans jack you may want to loosen the clamp and get it out of the way

I might go rent a jack, I think it will make things easier.

After fighting with 2 floor jacks and an extra person, I highly recommend getting a tranny jack.

Yes, rent the tranny jack. My two buds and I pulled my tranny today in a couple of hours using one. Make sure you keep everything very organized also.

I use 2 20" extensions to get the top bolts out, makes it easier than reaching up over the tranny. Definitely get a tranny jack for the job.
