clutch replacement

How hard of a job is it changing the clutchloride on a zf6 with 7.3. I'll be doing it on the ground. Is it possible to unbolt the cross members and slide the tranny/transfer case back enough, or just plan on dropping them?

Re: clutch replacement

go to H/F and buy the big hydraulic tranny jack, jack up the truck or put it on ramps, support back of t case, remove crossmember, disconnect shafts, remove trans and t case as an assy, drop em down and then roll the jack back as far as you can.
Now get in there and pull your clutch, read my sticky in the 7.3 section and put on your new dorman bellowed up pipes (unless you already have em), then put on the new clutch n put it all back together.... as expensive as these clutches are and as easily as they can be damaged by the weight of the trans, t case not to mention the risk of injury it just isn't worth trying to cut corners.

have ur buds chip in $10 each time they borrow the jack and it'll pay for itself (IF they bring it back )
