As far as I know, it comes off just like any other clutch. The changes that convert the bike into right hand drive are all in the transmission. Drain and remove the primary cover, remove the compensator nut, remove the plate held into the clutch pack by the snap ring, take the mainshaft nut off that holds the clutch on (NOTE: Left-Handed threads), take the primary chain adjuster off. Lift the compensator sprocket, primary chain, and clutch off as a unit.

Good Luck
Steve

WHat is the intermittent droning noise in 5th gear of my Mustang when driving?


Bearing inside the trans would be my guess

Have to pull it,take completely apart & change
all the bearings & hope for the best

First I would have the drive shaft checked for
being straight & have it balanced

2001-- loose the drive shaft joints

Check or replace ALL motor & trans mounts
& check any rear axle suspension bushings

Standard Trans have issues that require a lot
more work to diagnose & find a problem, than
an automatic

If & when you ever do the clutch, you balance
the flywheel, then bolt on the pressure plate &
balance the complete assy

Do not rule out the rear axle bearings

With a 14 year old vehicle,if you do All your
own work, you got only things to learn,so replacing
a few old worn parts to find a problem, is not really
a waste of time or money,because you need to fix
the issue & learn something

If your paying someone,I would forget all I said

I am removing the motor out of my 97 Subaru legacy its twin turbo 5 speed manual // question ??? do you have to unbolt the fly wheel or does it all come out with the transaxal if it does have to be...


The flywheel does not need to be removed, the clutch actuator does. That is if you are only removing the engine. I have found with this engine, it is easier to remove both the engine and trans at the same time while bolted together, then separate the two on the floor. If you are going the separation route you will find the actuator near the starter with the clutch slave cylinder attached. This engine trans setup uses a pull type clutch. If you do not disconnect the actuator that pulls the clutch away from the flywheel before separating the engine from the trans there will be problems.

On my fathers 97 gmc sonoma the slave/throwout barring began to leak and now he has no clutch, i have the new part but i cant get the bell housing out to replace the broken part. it seems there is not...


Changing the clutch or throwout bearing in a rear wheel drive is one of the easier things to do.
Having it on a lift is nice but it doesn't have to be. The truck needs to be high enough to get under and work. Needs to be on jack stands or blocking sturdy enough to hold the truck steady. Do not use ramps.

Remove the drive shaft, making sure the caps stay on the U joints. remove the shifter from the transmission. Take the slave cylinder off the trans., the stater, and then the transmission from the engine. You will need to support the motor in place so that it doesn't tear up the radiator or the firewall depending on the balance point. Take the trans down by pulling it back about 3 inches. Use a jack or 2 people to do this. Transmission is somewhere around 100 lbs.
On the back of the motor you will see the pressure plate held on to the flywheel with 6 bolts. Take the pressure plate off and the clutch is between the pressure plate and the flywheel. The flywheel may need to be resurfaced or you may just clean it up with coarse sandpaper. The clutch disc goes in one way with the spring assembly facing the rear of the truck. There should be an alignment tool with the clutch kit. The clutch has to be centered on the flywheel. If there is no alignment tool provided, you can center it by making sure the clutch disc is even with the edge of the pressure plate all the way around. Usually, the clutch is just a little bit smaller diameter than the pressure plate.

The throwout bearing is on the shaft coming out of the transmission. Should be held on by a fork that sticks out through the bell housing. After the throwout is replaced and you make sure it has free travel on the shaft reinstall the transmission. You may need to wiggle it a bit to get the splines on the shaft and the ones in the clutch to line up. Make sure the transmission is held straight so that the shaft in the transmission doesn't get bent. Slide the trans. to the motor and onto the alignment pins and bolt in place. Reinstall everything and you are done.
Thank you for using Fixya and since your going to replace the throwout bearing, you might as well replace the clutch since you have the transmission away from the engine to replace the bearing. Good luck and be safe.

How do i install a clutch on a 1990 laser?


You need to get a manual. Try the Haynes manual for your car. Try autozone; generally available for around $20. This is not the type of thing that can be covered here in enought detail to do you any good.
Basics are;
disconect the negative battery cable, set parking brake
locate the trans mounting bolts
get something to support the engine and something to support the trans
seperate the trans from the motor by removing the bolts. On transverse mounted engines you will probably have to pull the trans to get enough room to remove the clutch and you'll probably have to remove the 1/2 shaft axles (front wheel cars) or drive shaft (rear wheel drive cars)
If replacing the entire clutc assembly (pressure plate, flywheel, and clutch), loosen the pressure plate mounting bolts gradually working your way around the pressure plate. If only replacing the clutch then seperate the sperate the pressure plate from the flywheel and remobe. Align clutch with a clutch allignment tools and replace pressure plate. Torque bolts to spec. reconnect the trans to the motor. Few other things to think about. You should replace the throwout bearng when doing a clutch. Lube the clutch fork as directed without getting lub on the clutch face. Hopefully I have convinced yu to get a manual or you will be hating life if you take this on without it.

No high gear in 3 speed auto trans in 98 caravan


You must have a 3.0L engine to have a 670T 3 spd trans, if so, with high mileage trans, the diff bearings will start to wear out under torque and send fillings into the governor mounted on the tranfer shaft, giving you all kinds of shifting problems, also worn front clutch disc pack and seals will do it, also total failure of the front clutch will give you no reverse, 3rd gear needs front and rear clutch to work together,pull the pan off and check for fillings and material, if lots , pull the trans for overhaul. need more info, just ask RDJRP.

Manual transmission noise


It's most likely your throw-out bearing. It's located very inconveniently on the front shaft of the transmission and the way to remove and replace is to pull the tranny from the car... While you're at it, inspect the clutch and pressure plates and the pilot bushing (located in the center of the flywheel).

Remove both cables and the stay together. 6 Remove upper transaxle mounting bracket, remove the 4 transaxle to block attachment bolts that must be removed from the engine compartment. 7 Raise and support the vehicle safely. Remove both front wheels and splash shield 8 Drain the trans oil, remove clutch save cylinder.
