Question Advice needed! Rebuilding clutch 89 YJ.

Hey there. Looking for advice, need to rebuild my clutch on a 1989 YJ 6 cyl. Have purchased the new clutch kit and ordered the new pressure plate. Anyone out there with tips, tricks, or advice for me before I get started? I would appreciate any you can give me!

Thanks.

I rented a transmission jack from the local rental center for $26.00 for the whole weekend. Best money I ever spent.

I'm doing one right now without the jack and it is a pita...rent the trans jack. Also take your time it is a frustrating dirty job but you'll get through it.

They have a special tool for pulling out throwout bearing. You can add lock-tight to your pressure plate bolts. Use your alignment tool to align the clutch before tightening pressure plate. Clean Bell housing. You can check your clutch slave and Master cylinder and line connections for leaks before you install the trans by hooking them all up first. Make sure you bench bleed your new Master Cylinder before install and bleed entire system after install.

Bleed the shit out of the clutch hydraulics, they are a PAIN to bleed, so be patient, and bring extra brake fluid for the job...
