Oily clutch slipping

One of the hp oil lines broke and soaked everything. Now the clutch is slipping when under heavy torque. Is there a way to access the clutch without pulling the trans? And can I clean the clutch with brake cleaner?
Thanks, Luke

Yes, You can clean the clutch with brake cleaner. But I don't hink you can access the clutch without pulling out the mamoth.

just drive it around. It'll dry/clean itself out after a while. Might not sound like a good idea but the more you work it to get it warm the faster it will dry out.

You should be able to remove the starter and be able to spray in some brake cleaner into the bellhousing. Or is there a plug on the bottom of the bellhousing that you can remove with a 1/2 inch drive ratchet. Then spray in the brake cleaner that way. Other then that I have no clue besides unmounting the trans and slide it back so you can spray down the clutch and clean it and then slide the trans back in place.

Thanks, Luke
it is possible to drive it out of it , as long as you can keep it from slipping while driving , there is no way to possibly clean the disc correctly without pulling the trans , my professional opinion tells me you very well may have to replace at least the disc, if its soaked it bad enough to make it slip it was probably going anyway

Thanks

Thanks for the advice. I replaced the clutch 2 yrs ago when I had a fuel filter that didn't seal, well it looked sealed no leaks at idle, but when I ran it down the highway it started leaking and soaked the clutch. So I had the pleasure of replacing the clutch then. I guess I might be doing it again. The info is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Luke
