And it's done a pretty darn good job, too - even with my 302 in my '95 XL! The only problem is I finally fried the original clutch (never figured it'd last this long!).

I have an appointment to get the clutch replaced next week - any tips on what to ask the guy to do (other parts to check, best parts to use, etc.)? The mechanic comes highly recommended for doing good work, and only doing what needs to be done, all at a good price.

Also, what should something like this cost (at least a range to go by...)? I forgot to ask him what he thought, but would like to call him back with an idea of whether his quote is on track or not.

Ouch...I was hoping something more around $700 or so...

I wish I could do my own work, but there are three problems with that:

1. No lift or jacks
2. I'm not exactly what you would call "mechanically inclined", LOL
3. It's 4 degrees here right now, and no heated garage. : (

Do the slave cylinder while it is out. It is a BAD feeling to see the slave leaking when you just had the transmission out a week before and didnt replace it. Trust me, I know.
