3.2 six cylinder
ok im here hoping you can help cause nee to get this done so i can get my 88 ford bronco back from girlfreind lol
NOTE: Be sure not to insert the remover between the wedge collar and the clutch.
now this has a hydraulic clutch and its a push style slave . do you still have to that to get it out
ok yea i know its hard for you not being here. would it be easier if we put the tranny back up against the bell housing reinsert the bolts and take transfer case off so that its not so front heavy to help. and do we have to do anything with the release thing to put tranyy back in
hey thanks a lot trace. i greatly appreciate the help. we were working on it all day yesterday and i thought getting the y pipe off was going to be the hardest part with the bolts lol. thanks a lot for the info
yea thats for sure wish we had a tranny jack i know that would help a lot. deisel mechanic in military for 11 years and never had this much trouble doing a clutch job lol. thanks a lot for the help
just one more thing when we seperate the transfer from tranny i dont need a gasket when we go to put it back together do i? im hoping not because parts store would probably have to oder it?
yea have both shifters out . so dnt remove transfer
ok thanks. when i first saw your web site someone had same year and tranny and they were having problems putting it back in. they got it to an inch from bell housing and they were told to take the transfer off to make it easier with the weight distribution problem . but thanks for telling me not to take it off
ok thanks for all the info. i greatly appreciate it.
you have a good day and thanks again. going to see if i can find that release tool if not i'll have to try with the long flat tip screw driver thanks again. you were a LOT OF HELP ! thanks
cldnt get the tranny to come backwrds more than an inch. with the slave cyclinder removed from the outside, left the lever and fork go to far forward. couldnt even see the bearing u were saying about. put the slave cylinder back on and it pushed it forward . then we cld see the bearing thing but cldnt get it to release.
we couldnt even see that bearing till we put the slave cylinder back on . then it moved the lever and fork just enough to see it, we tried using the screw driver to do that but the screw driver kept bowing to much.

it has a push style clutch. the slave cylinder is bolted to the out side. when i unbolted the 2 bolts to take the slave cylinder off, which the haynes book called the clutch bearing release cylinder. the lever on the fork pushed it back out of the hole. to put the slave back on had to push in on it to get the bolts to start. only then could we see the bearing in front of the forks. we tried all day, i said the heck with it. its at a garage now. which i wanted to do in the first place. and not mess with it. tried to save 500.00 labor, but ended up wasting a whole weekend. but i appreciate u trying to help me out i really do
