Clutch change, advices/tricks/warnings ?

I'm doing it this week, i'm planning to change clutch cover,
clutch plate and release bearing.

As i'll have access, i'll also change rear main seal.

Any good advice or warning ?

Just in case someone wants to know, part numbers are:
cover URB100760 / plate UQB500030 / bearing FTC5200
rear seal LUF100430 / gasket ERR6811

be prepared to pull the flywheel too, often need resurfacing. Get an alignment pilot tool if you can find one at a fair price, very helpful for making a quick install.

don't forget to remove the half round shaped cover plate on the bottom of the transmission.

what about the cross seals on the rear main cap and might as well do the slave cylinder and flex hose.

+1 on that clutch alignment tool. Or get an old main shaft and use that (providing that the teeth aren't sheared off).

And the bushing in the flywheel.

Are you planning to drop the transmission or just pull it back?

the plastic clutch alignment tool at the auto parts store that fits Mitsubishi fits.

Always do the rear main and resurface flywheel. Use small sections of 2x4 against the frame with a bottle jack and a piece of pipe to get the crossmember out of the way.

Reach way up high on top of the transfer case to make sure you pulled those two wires. Mark them so you remember where they go so that your diff lock light works again.

I have a lift and a tranny jack. Hope you have both or a good friend with both. It sucks even with them. You couldnt pay me to do it without them.

Don't force things on the way back in or you will end up starting over.
Good luck, been there twice recently

When I pulled my first trans, I forgot to take over the cover plate on the bottom part of the front of the bellhousing. as a result I thought it was stuck, but it was the clutch hitting the plate.

Just curious, what do you mean when you say starting over, like if the release bearing was to accidentally get unpinned while fitting?

Oh, two things I forgot.
- Make some locating dowels. Bell housing to flywheel housing size bolts (3/8 x 16tpi) about 4-6" long with the heads cut off and slightly tapered. 4 should be enough. Screw them in to the flywheel housing and use as guides to fit the gearbox.
- When refitting be careful not to catch the O2 sensor leads inside the bell housing. Don't ask me how I know what a pain it is.

If you get pissed off at it you can easily F up the pilot bushing.

Transmision out this morning. The fault was on the clutch
release arm. Popped open on the lever point, i guess
lack of lubrication weared and weakened it.

I'll change disk and plate anyway as i'm there now.
