    I sure I got everything I need now? I've been to town and fleeced by the dealer. Not to bad actually. I'm back and have got the shop heating up and will put a couple more hours in prepping everything I can for when the last two parts hopefully show up on time tomorrow morning. fingers crossed. Weather is dicey. :whine:

    I've been researching a bunch I think the repair kit will be a winner. Apparently it's a better pilot bearing that goes with it too. Bigger and more contact area or something? Also looks like I should get my hands on a new clutch fork, the little plastic bushing thing the clutch fork rides on and the piece the throwout bearing contacts referred to as a 'quill'. That hopefully is the end of the shopping list. The missing items will be mainly dealer only items I think. Our local dealer keeps good stock so I'm hopeful they have something. But I have no account there so it can get ugly fast. I know one fella who works there, hopefully he's around tomorrow.

    I was kind of amazed at the pictures too. Crappy oldish iphone with a beat to living hell and back otterbox case over it too. It did quite a job. It's love /hate for me with the wrenches. I just can't bring myself to pay someone to potentially mess up or harm my truck and me pay them a fortune for it. I'm much more mentally stable when I screw it up myself for just cost of parts. :D

    Well the fun part is over. Orrr I think it was fun. It's all apart about 4-4 1/2hrs. My buddy much to his credit grabbed his jack and showed up when I was about 2hrs in solo. Crappy dual mass flywheel is present and accounted for. Pilot bearing is gone and the input shaft is chewed. And the clutch itself is blown apart, it's hard to see but a piece of it is missing, fell out when I opened it up and the springs are literally busting right out. I have ordered a repair sleeve kit but now I get to be Canadian.........and wait. Won't be here until Friday morning hopefully. Sure hope that works out, tranny otherwise has always seemed fine but I'm researching things to check shaft endplay and whatnot. I've already got a luk replacement kit and a luk solid flywheel.

    It's to quiet gear rollover noise I believe. So to keep. The tranny quieter. It's getting replaced with a single mass for sure. I'll probably pull the transfer case off and then balance the tranny on my floor jack looks like. My buddy can't get at his jack or something. Or would need me to come and lift it out from where it is? Floor jack it is!

    It don't matter none to me. I'm in a heated shop. But it matters if I need to sand anywhere. This is my only sander truck. When I was young I removed a v8 motor once from a car in a field in the winter. Slid it to the truck on the hood of the car. Lmao. Those days are done. Me and one other guy stupid enough to do it with me.

    Well it's about to get down and dirty in the shop. Still spitting out snow, but my 550 is going to be spitting out casings if I don't open it up and re and re this clutch and flywheel. I'm quite certain it's dual mass in there and it's coming apart. There's no more limping it along much I think. It's definetly getting worse by the km. I was really hoping to put it off. Just making a good breakfast while the shop heats up a bit. Worse thing for me is not having a proper tranny jack, hopefully a friend is stopping by with a motorcycle jack and we can improvise something up? I've balanced many a tranny on my floor jack but this zf6 is a bit of a monster. Pucker up buttercup. Lol.

    For sure check the fluid level and condition, there should be a box of fluid under there somewhere with a fill and drain port on it. And then check that the linkages from the knobs are working/adjusted and lubed properly.
