Hi Bob. I was surfing around looking for help with a problem I have, but first let me add a little something for your 'Do-it-yourself'ers. When replacing any clutch it is a good idea to replace the throw-out bearing and the pilot shaft bushing or bearing. Manuals always tell you to use certain pullers or tools to remove the pilot bushing/bearing from the rear of the engine crankshaft. The way I do it is by packing grease into the center hole where the pilotshaft rides. When you can't pack any more grease into it, insert a 6 inch long wooden dowel, the same size as the pilotshaft, into the hole and whack it with a hammer. The grease will force the bushing/bearing out. Then all you have to do is wipe out the grease and install the new one.
