Re: weekend project
Just a side note.... if you buy a clutch and pressure plate SET, they usually come with a plastic alignment tool. It's not a top grade tool, but it'll get the job done.
And I agree with the others, it's the weight of the tranny that'll kill you. Get some help. Or at least a small child that can dial 911 for you. There really isn't much to the work. Just bolts, a wire or two.... and paying attention. You'll be fine.
Make sure you inspect the throw out bearing, and input shaft bushing. Those trannys aren't much fun, and you don't wanna be back in there in a month for something you can fix now.
