I did my clutch last year. Unless your flywheel is in bad shape you might want to have a good machine shop turn it. This worked for me and saved me some money.

Yeah I would turn the flywheel again... You'll save a bunch there then all you need is the new parts... But while the flywheel in being done see about having the shop change the pilot bearing for you... :smart:

time might be my only problem on the fly wheel. if i get the time i would rather just have it turned.I bought a valair clutch fron thorobred diesel for 314 to my door and it comes with a pilot bearing, should that be sufficient? do any of you know where Valeo is made? finished rebuilding my fornt end on christmas eve. upper and lowers, all new tierods, track bar, u joints, brakes:hyper:. mike you will be proud that i didnot have to use 2X4's or nascar string to align. i left a day late for work and went to the alighnment shop and discount tire for new tires. thats why my budget for the clutch is small. appreciate the help guys.

it shouldnt take a shop more than an hour or so to resurface the flywheel and change the pilot bearing, plus itll be way cheaper that way. as far as Valeo i have never heard of these folks before.

I just put in a new tranny and replaced my clutch awhile back. Did alot of research on clutches and reading. I know your trying to save money but if you do any pulling of any kind don't cheap out on your clutch get a south bend and I would also get the heavy duty hydraulic clutch to go with it. Just my 2 cents.Thanks Rob
