Thanks. Yeah, I was able to find a shop by my buddies house that would turn it for $30.

Just got the flywheel back - looks pretty. Anyhow, I'm getting ready to replace the flywheel, and then the clutch and pressure plate. However, I just realized.... I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO BLEED THE CLUTCH! :O

A little help please.

Thanks.

ejeeperguy,

That was a great tip on getting the pilot bearing out with the reversed socket!! Hopefully I don't have to use it soon, but if I do, I will remember it.

Thanks and take care,

With an external slave you dont have to do anything special to bleed it. I was told to take the cap off the master cylinder reservoir and pump the clutch slowly a few dozen times. That's what I did. Everything worked out... (especially my left thigh!)

UPDATE:

So I didn't get my transmission back from the shop as anticipated. The guy told me the shaft in my tranni was busted and he had to buy a new one - not sure what he was reffering to, but it's only gonna cost me an additional $50. I will be getting it back sometime this week and installing it next weekend.

Anyways, so instead of installing the tranni back in, I went ahead and had my flywheel turned and replaced the clutch. It wasn't a difficult job at all. Pretty straight forward. However, between the drinking and working, it took us about four hours - good times.

Clutch Kit

I just priced out a clutch kit @ Advance Auto. About $105 shipped (with 20% off coupon for labor day "LABOR") Kit includes clutch plate, pressure plate, slave cylinder, alignment tool and misc hardware. Also if you buy anything over $100 this weekend you get a $50 coupon for your next purchase over $100.

Clutch Set

Good luck.

That is a sweet deal. However, I already bought and replaced the clutch. I paid a little more ($120) but I bought it from Autozone and it came with a lifetime warranty.

Thanks anyway!

Yes, that's definitely a great deal. My goodness where do u people live where you pay only $120 for a clutch kit and turn your flywheel for $30. I paid $180 for my kit. Best price i could find in my area. Ugh... gotta love the DC area...

LOL I actually live in Los Angeles. Autozone always has great deals on car parts. They are like the wall mart of auto parts! I got lucky with the flywheel. My co-worker told me about a place he goes and they were able to give me a good price. Trust me, we pay for it in other forms out here in LA.
