Default Looking for Help with Clutch install Friday and or Clutch alignment tool.

Pretty much what it says above, I will be putting a new clutch and flywheel in on Friday, any help one could offer would be apprecited. But I also need an alignment tool so if someone has one I can use that would be great. For anyone considering helping I live in Georgetown, MA about 20 minutes from the NH boarder and 25 minutes from boston right off of rt 95.
Thanks,
Joshua

Oh, they have CAT at Home Depot! Oh wait, you said Clutch, I was thinking Contractor Alignment Tool, hehehe.. We had a CAT at my one of my last jobs, it was a cardboard cylinder that we used when the Contractors fell out of line.

Thanks Jonathan,
Is any one available to help me though? My techs at work are telling me I am an idot to try and attempt it on my own and that I should just have them do it. But without help I am serious starting to reconsider. But then again they also said I was stupid to do the turbo.

I think I recall SubaTubaru and maybe Fitz talking about doing their clutches as well. Maybe If y'all work together as a group, you could get them done sooner.

Can you use Ira's Facilities (lift & tools) ?

Option 1:
go to Exeter Subaru. They did a good a job and gave me a loaner when mine was done in Oct 99?

Option 2:
go to Bob's Auto in Gtown. Talk to Bob & my friend Matt. Bob is the owner, Matt is their best tech (in my opinion). I'm sure staying local for you would be of great convenience.

That's like taking a client and introducing them to your competition.

Pete et. al,

it sounds like his dealership won't touch his car or he won't pay their more expensive labor rate and tax.

Option 3:
he does it himself w/ help.

Well, his dealership will definitely do it. It's a clutch, not a turbo. I'm gonna guess and say he doesn't want to pay for the labor. I don't think the labor rate among Subaru dealers vary by much. BTW, no tax on labor.

I know there is no tax on labor... But just saying if additional parts are needed.

My clutch install went slick last night. I already had the whole exhaust sytem off, the driveshaft out, intake system, and all the guarding before wayne showed up. By the time he got there we had to work on all the technical stuff (ex: trannie, shift linkage, etc). We had it done in a little bit under 5 hours. We also installed the STi trannie mount.. one hell of a difference there.

Default Sorry away

Sorry I was up in VT yesterday nite and today. Anyway, the reason I don't want my dealership to do it is because I enjoy doing these kinds of things myself. For one it saves money, but the main reason is for the experiance and for feeling of acomplishment. Bill, I thought I had sent you an email saying that I wasn't going with it, if I didn't, then I just plain forgot and I'm sorry. But I have decided to tackle it myself today so wish me luck.
