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.
