    I'm in the process of rebuilding a '87 2F and I'm trying to decide if it would be worth it to replace the clutch or not. I have a clutch with 50K Miles and seems to be in good shape. I also had the flywheel resurfaced. I'm over budget because this project started as a '85 2F, but that motor turned out to be hatched, so I had to buy another engine. Is it worth it to replace the disc and/or diaphram?

    :confused:

    I would say go ahead and spend the extra $$ while you have it all apart. Just do the clutch, pressure plate, pilot and throwout bearings. Much easier with it already apart. Then do the Slave and master once you get some extra $$$.

    If you cannot spend the money and don't mind yanking the tranny some time down the road then what the hey put her back together and just wait till it all goes out.

    Just depends how much time you want to spend replacing the clutch. A little now or alot later.

    you really don't want to have to pull the tranny/transfer case to do a clutch. a real bear of a job.

    I agree....DPO had rebuilt the tranny and didn't replace the clutch/TO bearing and now you can really hear the bearing noise as it sits and idles....Summer project to pull it all and replace everything...

    Thanks Guys,
    The new suspension will have to wait.
