No not yet.. Planning on changing clutch. Throwout bearing, keeper bearing..
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Going to check clutch release cable as well..
Transmission Mechanic: Randall, ASE Master Tech replied 2 years ago

ok, back then the repair manuals really offered no pictures, The fact is the trans comes out as we know, Once out? the TO bearing is simply held on the arm by 2 clips, unclip it and slide it off the nose of trans, NO biggy at all.

then unbolt pressure plate, remove it and clutch disc, the kit will come with an alignment tool to align disc etc,

I have inlcuded a couple links showing repair to pull trans and picture of the TO bearing, Once trans is out, it is straight forward and just remove the 3 parts and reverse procedure to put new ones in, Once trans is out, it is easy from there. I know the file says 1987 but is the same
