the answer is yes!! with time left to drink a six pack and smoke a cigar. The last clutch I did on a first gen took 3 1/2 hours. but then again I have done a lot of clutches on front wheel drives.

another question..........how much is absolutly nessecary to remove??? my day was unsuccessful, i ended up buying the clutch,but we didn´t even start dismantelling it....so, i have to get my dad to start on it before i get home from school.....so i can atleast pump it out..........we also ended up replacing the stabilizer bar, it was rusted thru.....so tomorrow i am not gonna stop til i have that car running, i will not go to sleep if need be, i cannot, and i stress this point, I CANNOT STAND A 1HR BUS RIDE TO AND FROM SCHOOL WITH THE FRESHMEN!!!!!!! ...

anyways, everyone gave me props for deciding to bring back the flame machine, i got a few hugs,high fives, and a young lady jumped on my, and wrapped her legs around my mid section............i love being an honorary senior, with a sweet ride.....

also, if you don´t mind, can you rate your 1st experience replacing a clutch, from 1-10? i´m so dedicated to get this thing running right now....any help is, well, helpful, and advised.....perhaps drop by, and sing camp fire songs, while making smores
?? anyways gotta go, homework/shower time......

alright, I may be a bit late but I have done the first gens two ways. One is to just remove the tranny as one would suspect. For a step by step consult the haynes manual they do a good job if you haven´t done this before. the only problem was for whatever reason the tranny fought to go back in. then we tried one i wouldn´t recommend but I will put it out there. take the hood off and pull the motor and tranny as one. sound worse than it is. It was actually about 15 minutes faster.
on a scale of one to ten on the first tranny i would peg it at about a 5. ov course I have had water pumps that were an 8 but the tranny isn´t as bad as it looks. just pay attention to where the bolts came from.

yeah, we just decide, take off the hood, tear the engine..............it took us 3 1/2 hrs in, and almost 1 1/2-2 hrs out, so it wasn´t to bad, i just am having trouble getting the fuel system to pressurize...........maybe i need to crank it some more??
??

I would check to see that all the lines are tight and things like that. Just curious what makes you think the fuel system isn´t pressurized? The most common problem I see when someone has starting problems after they pull an engine is forgetting to hook the grounds back up.
