Subject: Re: Problem Removing 85 900C Turbo Clutch

I will relate my clutch depressing method. I cut up a piece of striaght square bar stock ($2.00 from hardware supply store) into pieces just smaller than width of pressure plate splines. I do not remember if I used the 3/16 or 1/4 inch as I bought both sizes. Using a very short pry bar (18 inch) depressed each spline individually and slipped in a piece of the stock between the spline and plate. I pried against the release bearing and did not care if it or the splines got damaged as both were being replaced anyway. This method worked really well although time consuming. I also shaped my own piece of round stock for the refitting of the new pressure plate.
