Clutch replacement?

Hey I searched around and could not find much on the way of tech so I thought I would ask. Does anyone have any good pics or tips on droping the 5 speed out of a 1995 f350 to change the clutch. I got a new SBC with the SMF. Any helpful tips on doing this in a garage with no lift... its just me and my dad and we have not done a big truck like this before, just jeeps. Thanks.

zf 5

take t case off unless you rent a big trans jack
remove 8 shifter bolts
Use long extension with wobble head socket for top two bellhousing bolts
do not disconnect slave cylinder just tie up out of the way

o ya wash first then wash again

have fun

where did you purchase the clutch from and what kind of price where you able to find it for if you don't mind me asking? I am gonna need to order one as well in the next week or so as my throw out bearing is giving up on me.

I'm curious too. I got a quote with a single mass fly wheel and clutch for $1200 installed. I'm not fond on the idea of wrestling the tranny and t-case in my driveway since the truck won't fit in the garage.

Well I gave up on the idea of doing it myself too.. I got all the parts from Dynomite Diesle in Monroe, Wa. Thats who I buy from. It was $540 I think for the parts.

That's a good price on the parts, I ended up giving 550.00 for mine shipped and I will probably have another few hundred in the install since I am not gonna tackle the job by myself.

Don't be afraid to tackle this job on your own. I did my 99 speed with a friend in the garage with two small floor jacks. If you have a trans jack and a manual it really isn't that bad.

early '99 converted to late '99 F-350 dually, 4x4, 4 door, long bed, 6 speed. Midwest transmissions 05+ zf-6 transmission with their short throw shifter and SB clutch. Rosewood 180cc with 80% nozzles, Termy modded 17* HPOP, International bellowed up pipes, fs-2500, DP Tunes. A few other things here and there...
dually club member.. Why replace 5 tires when you can replace seven? I like my training wheels...

Yeah, I took the advice and with the help of a friend who is very knowledgeable on the ford zf-5 we swapped the clutch out last night and the only thing we have left is to button up the shifter and the cover plate and make sure everything is working as it should. I am also replacing the rear diff cover and fluid as the original one is starting to rust and seep oil so we r doing that as well.
