Bought my South Bend for $700 from a buddy who is a Shop owner and gets better pricing. I would try to find someone like that cause he saved me $150 on just the clutch. This was a kit that came with everything including the flywheel rated to 450 HP.
I borrowed a sh*tty tranny jack and it took me 6 beers to finish it.
I snapped my Clutch fork last Monday. Dropped the tranny on tuesday in an hour using the same sh*tty tranny jack and all hand tools. I do not own air tools or a lift which would turn this into a 30 min job. Picked up a new fork from dealer and installed in 1.5 hours on Wednesday.
This is seriously a very very easy job. The hardest part for me was stabbing the tranny back in due to the crappy tranny jack. I had 3 ratchet straps on it just to help it stay still on the jack.
Best part of this whole bit of fun was borrowing my dads rig. Man was it a nice ride!
