1) Buy a clutch (Paul @ Complete Performance is a SouthBend dealer)

2) Drive to shop with clutch in the back seat.

3) Write a large check and hand them the keys

4) Come back a couple hours later and drive away

I paid about $400 in labor to have my clutch replaced, and it was money well spent.

I've done clutches before, and they aren't any fun.

I put a Southbend clutch in. I don't remember the exact type, but the only thing better would've been the dual disc.

I would recommend calling Southbend directly and asking for some advise.....

Back in the day, I had a 304 cid Jeep that needed a clutch. We rolled it on it's side, and that made the job VERY easy. When we got it back upright, the left bank was full of oil. I pulled the spark plugs from the four cylinders on that side, pulled the coil wire and cranked it over a few times. Oil sprayed all over the alleyway. lol It smoked like h*ll for about ten miles or so. lol
