Took my NEW Flywheel and New Clutch cover to San Diego Engine Balancing today.
The flywheel was on the money and the cover just need indexing, but the balance was good.

Pulling the engine to replace the clutch is no big deal, its all "the while you are there" distractions that add up.

We pulled my engine & trans "just" to replace the clutch and head gasket, and some general clean up. Just get the car driving, then figure out where to go from there. A couple-three weeks max, right?

Discovered wiped cam and lifters, which then progressed to frame off. Almost five years later, just starting to reassemble......heavy sigh.....

Ahhh, the problem with a vaccine or cure is that if you don't succumb to the disease at the right time (While you ARE actually there or at it), then you are forever plagued with the regret of "Why didn't I do that last time while I was in there?" or the similar corollaries: "Why didn't I just:" a) Do it right the first time, or b) spend the extra money for the better part or c) why didn't I seek professional help! or d) fear of "Did I do that or not....????"
For every action there is an equally gut wrenching mental reaction to torture you!
"When all else fails, force prevails!" Ummm, we're gonna need a bigger hammer here.
