Oh god, it was a huge hassle to get my old motor out with the fenders off and everything removed - I'm glad I'm not you! Of course I pulled mine with r380 and LT230 attached, but still... and you didnt even remove the brush guard. I hope you have a clutch alignment tool for reassembly.

Although I dont know why you went to all the trouble to remove and replace the motor - you should have just used the "Fixing Kit!"

Did somebody throw up in front of your truck? LOL.
No really, I am glad I am not you, though I know an engine swap is not long in my future.

Well according to the manual I need to replace the whole clutch, because one of those little springs is broke. Nope, no I don't have a clutch alignment tool, there must be a way to do without? I tried the fix it kit, and no luck. Jesse, I drove into 3 feet of trowup and thats when all my problems started. So any guesses ae to what else will go wrong?

what you gonna replace with mike? I feel like I read somewhere around here you were gonna put in a 4.0?? I put a 350 na jeep once we didnt use the alignement tool. when we found it we were like maybe you use that to line things up..

Dave Merchand's old 4.0 is going in. I don't remember anything about an alignement tool in the manual, but I could have missed it. I bet it is doable without.

Alignment tool - its just a big help, you can get one from RN for less than 20 bux. It just alows you to line everything up during clutch assembly and transmission installation. I did mine without, but you just have to gently make an attempt, turn the input shaft a hair, and try again until it slides in.

Or you can use an old input shaft from an old trans if you have one lying around.

So am I gonna need a clutch alignment tool when I swap my clutch out?

Mike, Sorry about the throw up. I think that's what made my clutch go squirrelly too.

The tool just makes it easier, worth the 15 bux in my view.

Hmm for 15 or 20 I think I'll get one, when you first said I needed a special tool I though it was going to be $$$$$$. And after I use it I'll send it over your way Jesse. The clutch is easy to get off, it is just all that other stuff you need to do to get to it.

The main idea of the alignment tool is to simulate the input shaft from the tranny to help center the clutch disk. It's possible to do the job without it, but the alignment tool sure does make it easier. That disk MUST be centered under the pressure plate, or you just ain't gonna get the tranny on.

Thanks Jim! Oh and to answer one of your first questions yes, brushgaurd left on! The engine lift my father could lift the engine high enough to clear the brushgaurd with room to spear!

No, a new clutch, a Megasquirt (replaces ECU), a heated Garage, and a good looking mechanic! I could go on but I think that would be pushing it.

LOL! I think the only one I'll be getting is the clutch, and It's not even from Santa! What did I do to get on the naughty list?
