What you need to do is hunt ebay for a set of FSM's for your car, and follow it. They walk you through a clutch change in fine detail.

Re: 88 daytona shelby z clutch replacement

It's a little daunting if you've never dropped a transaxle before. There's a lot of stuff crammed into a little space. Take your time and be patient. The first time you do it, assuming you actually have all the tools, just plan to be at it all day. And always look for that last bolt between the bell housing and the block. I always manage to forget one even after all the times I've done it.

Some tips if you're leaving the engine in car:

1) You need a hoist or something to support the transaxle. You can do it with a jack in theory, but I've found it's 10x easier to lower the trans down from above where you can turn and wiggle it past the subframe and engine.

2) Once you have the axles out, all the bolts out, the starter pulled back out of the way, and the shift/clutch cables disconnected, get your hoist or jack set up under the trans so it's supported and remove the trans mount. Just taking the bolt out through the wheel well won't always give you the wiggle you need, so take the whole mount off and out the way. Once the mount is out, do NOT let anyone under the trans unless you put it back in. That thing weighs quite a lot and if it falls on a body part it will do some damage.

3) You'll want a jack with block of wood under the engine too. As you lower the trans, let the engine come down with it so they're both on an angle down towards the driver's wheel. Keep the engine supported with the extra jack so you're not putting all the weight on the engine mounts.

4) Once you have it all clear of the body and everything is supported, the trans should basically slide away from the engine. This is the part where the hoist is super helpful because sometimes the weight of the trans will make it hard to slide away from the flywheel. You may need to wiggle or twist it a bit to get it to pull away. Once it's loose though, it'll basically fall out.

If you run into any issues, don't force it or get frustrated. Just walk away for a minute, rethink what you've done and come back. Or take pictures and ask us what to do next. There's almost always someone on here to respond. (Also, sorry if I repeated anything you already said Asa).

Re: 88 daytona shelby z clutch replacement

Another thing to remember is to plan time to have the flywheel resurfaced. You absolutely have to do that! Otherwise, all that work will be wasted. Find a good local drivetrain shop, and see what their schedule is. Some places will do it while you wait, other require a day or two...

Re: 88 daytona shelby z clutch replacement

Great advice from everyone, so you should be good to go! Definitely use the hoist as opposed to the tranny jack if at all possible, i have done 3 of these this year and the jack is just awkward due to the shape of the transmission. Good Luck!
