Wednesday May 12, 2010 - Went and picked up the clutch kit from a local parts store in kitchener, going to install it this weekend, pictures of kit and installation coming this weekend.
Monday May 10, 2010 - Weather was nice so i decided to stay a bit more at home before going back to Kitchener to work for a few more days. I got started on taking out the starter and found more fibrous material from the clutch and we also found that the clutch could freely spin between the flywheel and the pressure plate without any friction, after taking off bell housing bolts and CV axle and other things, the transmission came off, I took off the pressure plate to revile a clutch disk that was so worn, one side was completely gone (see picture below), and the other side was worn to the rivets, i peeled off the only remaining side (see picture), pressure plate was damaged and heat scored and flywheel was heat scored but no surface damage, still thinking if we should get it machined but not shops near by. Ordered a clutch kit, just waiting for it to arrive.
Sunday May 9, 2010 - Used my powerful lawn tractor lol and towed the car out back to get work started on it, jacked it up and put it on ramps, little into the night i found a access panel behind the flywheel and i took it off and found cluch pad material and that was it for the night.
