When you are ready to do the job. Let me know, I will drive up and give you a hand changing out the clutch.....
Getting the flywheel resurfaced and getting the driveshaft rebuilt and balanced would be the right thing to do since you will be dropping out the driveshaft to remove the tranny.
I lost the slave cylinder in my tranny, so since I was there I replaced the complete clutch assembly along with what I mentioned above. I install a complete pumpkin with 3.27's along with this job.
The ONLY problem I encountered was I had RUSTY starter bolts. I have to grind off the head of the lower bolt in order to remove it. But other than that, It was really simple job to do. Why pay someone else over a grand for something that you can do, is what I told myself when I got frustrated.......
