How to Replace a Clutch in your Car or Truck (Full DIY Guide)

  • Published on: 17 January 2019
  • Learn how to replace a clutch, flywheel, pressure plate, throw out bearing (aka release bearing), pilot bearing and rear main seal in this video!

    My clutch was fine but my throwout bearing was bad so I decided to show how to replace all of the wear items while the transmission was off. This includes replacing the pilot bearing which the transmission input shaft goes into, the throwout bearing which engages the pressure plate via the clutch fork, the flywheel which I upgraded to an aluminum light weight flywheel, and finally the rear main seal because that is a common wear item which causes oil leaks in higher mileage motors. With the transmission out, it is worth it to replace all of these parts now instead of having to do this all over again. Most clutch kits come with the throwout bearing and pilot bearing so you just need to buy a rear main seal.

    To remove the rear main seal cover on 90’s model Chevy small blocks, you have to partially lower the rear of the oil pan because the cover has a dowel pin pointing down

    Hi, quick question what’s the benefit of torquing the bolts after the sealant is dryed on the cover to the crankshaft ?? Instead of when it’s drying ??

    Can a flywheel or clutch go bad by constantly parking your car with first gear, and now using the hand break?

    I have used a small drill bit to drill two tiny holes on the edge of the pilot bushing and then used a punch to break the bushing inward. Then the tension is off and the bushing comes out.
