The new clutch assembly will be available from any Land Rover shop but be sure to quote the Chassis number. Replacing the unit is straightforward but not a job for anyone without a hoist and some basic knowledge of these assemblies, also a spline alignment tool. If you must do it yourself, get a copy of the workshop manual and follow the instructions carefully. Honestly, by the time you mess around with it, it will be cheaper to go to a Land Rover specialist (not a dealer) and get it done professionally

Steps to remove install clutch in a 1994 Pontiac Firebird

Start by disassembling the center console.Then,remove the shifter boot and shifter.Disconnect the wiring harness from the trans and tuck it aside(bungee cords work good for this).Remove the bracket that attaches the torque arm from the rear axle.Mark the universal joint at the axle(so it goes back in the same way),and remove the four bolts on the joint.Lower the driveshaft and slide it out of the trans(put a drain pan down to catch the trans fluid).Remove the clutch slave cylinder from the bellhousing(2 bolts).Unbolt the crossmember and lower it with the trans,then remove from trans.Remove the bolts from the bellhousing to the block(probably want someone's help at this point as the trans is heavy).Then slide the trans out.Remove the 6(?) pressure plate bolts,and remove the plate and disc.If the flywheel surface is cracked from overheating,you'll probably want to replace it also.If it just has minor glaze,you could just take a sanding block with 80 grit paper to clean it up.(I have started the engine and used a high speed sander against the surface to make a"swirl" finish,but this is not for the faint of heart).A good replacement clutch kit will come with a plastic alignment tool,new disc,remanufactured pressure plate,and a throwout bearing.Install the new parts in reverse of removal,leave the pressure plate finger tight,center the disc with the tool,and tighten the bolts in an alternating pattern in several passes,making sure the alignment tool doesn't bind.Put the new thowout bearing in the fork,and put it back together.(getting the trans back into the car will be the hardest part,but don't force it.)If the input shaft doesn't want to line up in the disc,try turning the input shaft a little and try again(gotta get the splines lined up).Now put everything back together,use a skim coat of silicone gasket maker when reinstalling the shifter.(It's been about 15 years since i quit the Pontiac dealer tech job,but this should be enough info for a do-it-yourselfer to get it done as far as I remember)

Repairing linkeage on 89 VX fox

If by fixing the clutch you mean replacing it ?
Replacing the clutch is relatively straightforward:
Parts needed:
Throwout bearing
Transmission clutch kit including pressure plate and driven plate
rear main seal for the engine
rear transmission mount rubber.
Shifter linkage rebuild kit ($20 bux from the parts place, google on web)
3 qts redline MTL transmission oil
17 mm hex wrench to drain and replace fluid (think Sears here)
Borrow of buy a clutch alignment tool (no not the rabbit style)
With vehicle on ground loosen the front wheel hub nuts (they are on VERY tight >150Lbs/ft torque)
Remove the battery ground connection after noting any radio securoty codes you may have.
Chock the wheels , jack up the front of the vehicle, secure on jackstands.
remove the drive shafts on both sides baggie the CVs so you don't contaminate them.
Mark and emove the starter wires, remove the starter.
If starter is old consider getting it rebuilt at this time.
remove the shifter linkages, replace all the worn plastic bits, bag and lay aside.
Support the engine with a floor jack. Loosen the front engine snubber mount (near the crankshaft pullry)
remove the transmsiion mount (looks like a sqaushed starred donut) under drivers feet (approximately) Remove the mount bracket
I suggest you renew the mount at this time
Remove the clutch cable from the clutch lever
remove the bolts holding the tranny to the engine
Lower the engine at the rear
SUPPORT the transmission and slide the unit off the pilot bushing. PUT NO PRESSURE on the transmission input shaft!!!
Lower tranny to ground and remove from under unit.
mark the pressure plate (clutch cover) as to orientation with a witness mark. Remove it and the clutch driven plate, don't breathe the dust. (BAD for humans) Note the driven plates spline orientation.
Clean the pilot bushing in the center with carb cleaner, regrease when dry with a smear of MOS2 greas (black and ugly type) Not too much just a thin smear.
Clean the transmission shaft with WD40 or Kerosene, dry with clean rag.
Remove and replace the throwout bearing, if you've been breaking clutch cables lately the pivot point on the side of the case where the thowout shaft lives is dirty. It needs to be cleaned w/cleaner and lubed with MOS2 grease.
Place the clutch plate in position, make sure you get the splines oriented correctly.
Clean the steel surface of the clutch pressure plate with a light hydrocarbon like lighter fluid, no grease here... I've used starting fluid here in a pinch, no smoking ;-)
Place the clutch cover (new unit? orient the same as the old one) over the plate. Use the tool to center the plate under the cover. If you mis-align the plate putting the unit back together will be a painful experience... so be careful, check your work. Tighten the plate into position, use a cross pattern on the bolts. Don't be sloppy here , a bolt coming loose would be bad $$$$$...
Add a small amount of grease onto the transmission input splines. This helps the clutch action, not a lot just a bit to make the shaft shiny.
If you're strong enough you can lift the transmission into position and slide it onto the plate splines. Otherwise use a floor jack to lift into position. Put the tranny in gear so that you can spin the axel adapter to move the shaft splines to get them to align.
Reverse this procedure to finish up.
I recommend driving the car after initially adjusting the pedal for 12mm or 1/2 free play. Drive the car and re-adjust as needed.
Get the transmission hot by driving for an hour.
Drain the fluid.
replace the bottom plug after it stops dripping
Add fluid to the side plug till the fluid runs out. replace the plug.
Enjoy the new clutch.

How get to flywheel bolts

In the Toyota Pick-ups/Land Cruiser/4Runner 1989-1996 (free register) can find several graphics about this.

Driven Disc and Pressure Plate - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

(see Figures 1 through 27).


CAUTION The clutch driven disc may contain asbestos, which has been determined to be a cancer causing agent. Avoid inhaling any dust from any clutch surface! When cleaning clutch surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid. Never clean clutch surfaces with compressed air.
  1. Remove the transmission.
  1. Matchmark the clutch cover (pressure plate) and flywheel, indicating their relationship.
  1. Loosen the clutch cover-to-flywheel retaining bolts one turn at a time in a crisscross pattern. The pressure on the clutch disc must be released GRADUALLY.
  1. Remove the clutch cover-to-flywheel bolts. Remove the clutch cover and the clutch disc.
  1. If the clutch throwout bearing is to be replaced, do so at this time as follows:
  1. Remove the bearing retaining clip(s) and remove the bearing and hub.
  2. Remove the release fork and the boot.
  3. The bearing is press fit to the hub. Turn the bearing by hand while placing it under some pressure; check for freedom of motion and lack of grinding or resistance. The bearing is permanently lubricated and cannot be disassembled or greased.
  4. Clean all parts; lightly grease the input shaft splines and all of the contact points.
  5. Install the bearing/hub assembly, fork, boot, and retaining clip(s) in their original locations.
  1. Inspect the flywheel surface for cracks, heat scoring (blue marks), and warpage. If oil is present on the flywheel surface, this indicates that either the engine rear oil seal or the transmission front oil seal is leaking. If necessary, replace the seal(s). If in doubt concerning the condition of the flywheel, consult an automotive machine shop.
  1. Before installing any new parts, make sure that they are clean. During installation, do not get grease or oil on any of the components, as this will shorten clutch life considerably. Grease or fingerprints may be cleaned with an evaporative cleaner such as the type used on brake linings.

To install:
  1. Position the clutch disc against the flywheel. The long side of the splined section faces the flywheel.
  2. Install the clutch cover over the disc and install the bolts loosely. Align the matchmarks made. If a new or rebuilt clutch cover assembly is installed, use the matchmark on the old cover assembly as a reference.

Whenever the clutch disc is replaced, replacement of the pressure plate (clutch cover) and release bearing is highly recommended.
  1. Align the clutch disc with the flywheel using a clutch aligning tool. These handy tools are available in many auto parts stores at a reasonable price. Do NOT attempt to align the clutch disc by eye; use an alignment tool.
  1. With the clutch aligning tool installed, tighten the clutch cover bolts gradually in a star pattern, as is done with lug nuts. Final tighten the bolts to 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm).
  2. Apply molybdenum disulfide grease or multi-purpose grease to the release fork contact points, the pivot and the clutch disc splines. Install the boot, fork, and bearing on the transmission input shaft.
  3. Install the transmission.
Hope helped.

Remove fan from water pump on a 1997 Ford F150 4.2 Liter

There is a special tool that is required to hold the fan clutch. Then the fan screws out of the clutch. The tool can be bought or rented at your friendly parts store like autozone, etc. It will look something like this:

Clutch not properly disengaging on a 91 ln130 surf

You seem to have a bad or weak pressure plate. Even if its relatively new it may be defective. As far as help to remove the gearbos our its alot of work and its very heavy. I would need a transmisson jack to hold the box. reove all the bolts arount the bell housing the starter and lines to slave cylinder. You should be able to wiggle the box out. To re-install you need a clutch alignment tool.
