Well I worked on it for about 3 hours today. Every bolt was a rust fight all the way. The two bolts holding the Carrier Bearing took an hour. My air tools aren't much use because of too long of a hose to reach so the pressure drop is too much. Why do they use bolts that are 6 times longer than needed? I took a lot of breaks because I am not use to working with my arms in those positions. I get tired a lot quicker than I use to. I used "PB Blaster" on the bolts which I have used before with great success, although it helped every 1/8 turn was still a battle. I used a 24" breaker bar and my arms are going to be sore. I will get it done though because I am not a quitter.

I have a longer breaker bar that I should have gotten out, LOL

I took today off to recover before I continue. I think holding my head off the ground kinked my neck a little.

Also looking like you should be able when you're not makes it seem like you are just making excuses for things you "don't want to do" when you really just can't. I do feel a lot better today so I think I can go for it again tomorrow. Today I will be eating turkey & stuff & pie with my daughter and family and being THANKFUL!

I took today off to recover before I continue. I think holding my head off the ground kinked my neck a little.

That's killer on my neck as well. Last month I had one mower blade that refused to come off so almost an hour later of laying sideways torquing my neck and straining with everything I had then I finally got the blade removed with a 6ft cheater bar. My neck was toast that day and sore the next along with everything else but I got it done.

 ;) Last time I had a stubborn nut to remove I finally broke down and broke out the impact gun and $45 dollars for the for the 1 1/2" 6 point socket . 3 hours wasted turning purple trying to remove it with a 2 foot breaker bar and 45 seconds with the impact driver  ::) ::) ;D. The nut held the shaft seal on the inboard transmission of my 1968 Lhurs 28 ft Sport Fisherman

I can definitely relate.  I had a work injury to my neck almost 20 years ago which resulted in surgery fusing two vertebrae C5 & C6. My neck hurts after I change my mower blades as well, or when I look under my truck. Seems the older I get the easier it is to hurt it and the longer to get over it.

Yep since this ain't heaven yet pain is life. We suffer yet we persevere. Multivitamins, supplements and cbd oil help me get through the pain and recover faster but sometimes I still need pain pills too. Guys that lived before us building our nation had it way worse with brutal physical labor, way less comforts and possessions, so I'm grateful my suffering is light compared to them.

I can relate... usually after about a half hour of working under a car, my neck starts to hurt.
Then I think to myself... "Hey Ding Dong... relax and lay your head down."
I know sometimes that is not possible, but it amazing how I lift my head up to get a closer look when it isn't really necessary.

I just realized I never updated this after the job was finished.
When I got it done it worked great, he was so happy and he said he has never been so impressed with anyone in his 70 years. I think that is pretty sad he has never been so impressed with anyone, I did it because he needed the help and it's hard to believe that no-one ever just helped without strings attached before. I will say it was hard to get him to let me help.

I put in a new pilot bearing, flywheel, clutch, pressure plate, slave cylinder, and clutch master cylinder. He had driven it until the clutch was so burned up that it would not move the truck another inch, IT WAS COOKED. The flywheel was cracked it about 12 places with groves from the clutch rivets, everything was heat discolored that could be.

The C-6 was about 140 pounds not counting the torque converter which adds another 30 pounds.
That is with NO fluids Guys!
Yeah. I worked on those a lot back when I was around 17 or so.
Always used a floor jack to lift that bad boy!

Believe it,  or not, I bench pressed the one in my 71 F250 Highboy. Out, and back in. Then again,  I was in my late 20's. Wouldn't try that now.

I once burnt my clutch way out in the sand dunes on a surfing trip we had to do the job on the beach at night in Mexico!!!

I feel that The only way this can be outdone is by replacing the clutch on the Lunar Rover...on the moon, the darkside.
