Angry The 300's clutch says bye bye, who will help me put another one in?

Well on the way back from Asheville tonight (after Dylan's springs install) my clutch started slipping really bad. I got about 5 miles from home and the car wouldn't even move anymore

I had to have Jackson's Wrecker Service tow it home ($40). All of the garages around here are shiesters and taking it to a nissan dealership is instant rape.

I've got to order a clutch within the next day or 2. There goes more money I don't have.

So the car is sitting at my house. I have a garage.
Who is willing to help me once I get the new clutch? I'm located in Landrum, SC (about 15 minutes from Spartanburg and about 45 minutes from Asheville).

I would seriously appreciate the help. When I receive the clutch I'll post a date for the install. I'll go ahead and try to have the tranny pulled by then. More than likely it'll be on a Friday or Saturday.

Thanks.

Cam

I've never installed a clutch on a Subaru, but I'm willing to give it a shot if it doesn't fall on a horse show weekend. Let me know.

Psst... guys... it's not on a Subaru! It's on a Nissan 300ZX

I'd offer my help, but I have no earthly idea how to change a clutch.

I thought that after I made my post... A 300Z shouldn't be too difficult.

Hey guys I appreciate all the offers to help. I have the car up on jackstands in the basement right now. I got 4 of the 6 exhaust bolts out before I broke my long 14mm socket (dang craftsman).

I'm having second thoughts about putting this sucker in at the house...........I don't know.

I may have it towed again to a garage in Green Creek. I'll go ahead and order the clutch though.

Sometimes I really hate cars.

I don't think it should be too much of an issue, Cam. My grandfather and I dropped the driveshaft, transmission, and torque converter on my Oldsmobile in the backyard with nothing more than a tarp to catch the transmission fluid, a socket set, and a pair of jackstands. I doubt the 300Z is complicated enough to require a full garage setup.

Steven,

You might be right. I think if I have enough people it won't be too horrible. But it is a Nissan and a 92....so it might be a little overengineered compared to that Oldsmobile.

Anyone who is willing to come help I'd really appreciate it and consider you a true friend . I'm still checking out clutches and I'll order one within the next day or so.

Napa has a Beck/Arnley for $160.60 (oem)
Clutch City Online has an Exedy Daikin Clutch for $115 (oem)
Clutchmasters.com has a stage 1 for $295.74
CoxImport.com has the ACT clutch for $327.60

That's what I've found so far. Any opinions on this?

Thanks.

If you have to replace the clutch you might as well upgrade to a better one.

Paging Dixon Certid......Your party is waiting.

I don't think I'll ever do much to the engine of this thing. I'm really missing my subaru, so I'm just going to put an oem clutch back in it. I don't have the money for anything else. Also I read some bad stuff about centerforce clutches (just an fyi).

I went with the Exedy Daikin Clutch. I'll post the install date after I get it.

*sigh*

Apparently this is the same tranny used in the 240sx. One of my friends has had his 240 tranny out before, so I'll see if he can come help.

Mom said she'll supply food.....probably pizza. BYOB if you want it. We'll have water lol, and sodas. And I'll supply the annoying cocker spaniel to lick your face while you're under the car....

Alright here's the present situation:

I got a replacement 14mm socket and got one more nut off the exhaust. There is still one nut holding the entire exhaust on and it's stripped . I have no idea how to get it off. I wish I had one of those Gator Grips. I also bought 3 quarts of tranny fluid and exhaust gaskets (which I'll have to return b/c the hewhore gave me the wrong ones).

I've drained the transmission fluid and the hydraulic clutch fluid.

There is a local guy that is "suppose to" come help me tomorrow pull the tranny. If he comes through I can try to get the flywheel resurfaced on Wednesday.

The new clutch is suppose to be here on Wednesday. I know the dragon is this weekend, but if I could get at least 2 people who have a slight idea of what they're doing we could do it on Thursday or Friday.

Best bet is to hunt down a Dremel and a metal cutting tip for it. Cut that bolt off and replace it with a new one. NAPA or any other parts place should be able to get you a replacement. I'm sure it's just a standard 14mm exhaust bolt that nearly every import car uses. Just take one of the good bolts with you and find a match.

The only problem with that is that the stud are like seated in the exhaust manifold and they'd be hard to get out. I've been buzzing at it with a dremel for the past hour to just try to cut the nut off......haven't accomplished it. I may just need to either drill it out or torch it off .

Ryan, I'm talking about the gator socket....guess I didn't say it right. The thing that is suppose to fit all kinds of bolts even if they are stripped. I dont' know if this would work either.

Damn this sucks.

Ryan, don't worry about the gator grip thing.

My dad worked on it for like 2 hours with a hammer and chisel (and penetrating blaster) and it came off. Came off severely mangled but it's off. I'll have to replace the stud.

The exhaust is off. No wonder this car is a pig, I bet the exhaust alone weighs 130lbs at least.

Next step.......pulling tranny. The clutch is suppose to be here tomorrow. And I'm suppose to have help tomorrow as well.
