I just drop the tranny from bell housing. its like 11 bolts total. drive shaft, bell housing, cross member, and speedo. assuming the shifter has been removed already. then you have all sorts of room to access the bell housing bolts. 1 ft long extension and a universal joint and your in business. off topic, but has anyone ever had trouble with a bent cluch fork???

Yep, there is nothing too terrible, just have a good selection of extensions and swivel joints and you can get everything from underneath. I usually take the center console and shifter out first, drain the fluid, remove the driveshaft, remove the H-pipe, loosen the crossmember bolts, support the tranny with a jack, loosen and remove the 4 bellhousing to trans bolts, remove the crossmember bolts, slide the tranny back to disengage and lower the tranny on the jack. Then you can access the bellhousing. Remove the starter, I usually just take the bolts out and set it on the K-member without disconnecting the wire. Remove the inspection plate bolts and the bellhousing bolts and the clutch cable cover and take the cable out of the fork. Loosen the pressure plate bolts and remove the pressure plate and clutch disk. Remove the flywheel bolts and have the flywheel resurfaced. Replace the rear main seal, replace the pilot bearing (a special puller is available at autozone). Put resurfaced flywheel back on using teflon tape on the flywheel bolts. Clean flywheel, disk, and pressure plate with brake cleaner thoroughly (this is important). Put clutch disk and PP back on using plastic alignment tool that comes with most clutch kits. Grease the clutch fork and put the bell housing back on. The rest of the reassembly is the opposite of disassembly. It is a time consuming job, but it is possible to do it in a day if you have all the tools and don't have to run back and forth to autozone for a bunch of stuff.
