There's a set in an '02 at a local yard. Can get fronts and rears for a touch over $50. They're in decent shape, might go pick them up on Friday.

Nice score. I've been casually looking for that package to add to my collection of stuff. Haven't had an ebay search going for a while though, I remember about once a year or so and never find one of course.

Nothing to worry about. Slide it onto the fork (if there are clips left), slip the bearing over the input shaft and snap the clip in the fork over the pivot ball. Done.

They ARE an assembly aid only. Some tabs are plastic, some are thin sheet metal. The fork keeps the bearing riding on the fingers on the pressure plate, not the tabs. There is no real "return" for the bearing by the tabs. The pressure plate fingers are spring loaded and will push the bearing back. B...

He doesn't have testing where he is. But, 160F is too cold, you really need to use something closer to OEM. I understand the heat there and wanting to keep it cool but even if you could get it to stay down around 160 with a radiator that could keep up, the engine will run better hotter.

Just pull all of the plugs, not that it makes a big difference. Crank it over with the gas pedal to the floor and keep cranking until the gauge stops rising. You'll usually see it stop rising by the time it spins over 10 revolutions. Dry should be in the range noted above with stock pistons and stoc...

And the really bad part is that you don't HAVE to remove cams to put rockers in place. There is a tried and true method of prying down the valve retainer enough to get the rocker to slip in.

"Back in the day", the service manuals said that you had to remove the head to get the cam out. We quickly proved that to be wrong by tipping engine/trans.

Telling you to cut the clips off was a pretty poor suggestion. It's too bad someone that is really supposed to be knowledgeable is telling people things like that. The clips are mainly there to aid in assembly, they keep the bearing in the correct position on the fork! Yes, many clutches do "rattle"...

There are other systems that perform better, are easier to work with and are much more stable. The AEM is certainly one of them.

A coarse thread wood screw or sheet rock screw can also be run into the remains of the sensor and then use it to pull it out. Dropping the pan is a pain in the ass compared to that but might be the only other way.

No but if you swap the IAC then I have confirmed that I can upgrade a 2000 ecu to a 01 cal and everything runs correctly
2000 changed to an '01 ACR or R/T as well? No '01 or '02 in junkyards here right now but plenty of 2000s.
