1931 Auburn clutch replacement was created by auburnandyscar
Wanting to replace the clutch in a 31 sedan.
It seems (to me) that there is no "easy" way to accomplish this.
*Note* I have more experience with newer cars (1965+) so I may be looking at this wrong (?)
Does the engine and transmission need to be out of the car to get this done?

Doesn't the free wheeling unit have to come off too ?

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Even if you removed the free wheel unit there does not seem to be enough space to slide the transmission back ( before it hits the X member) for the input shaft to come free.

If you are doing this under the car on your back make a cradle for your floor jack and remove it supported by the cradle. Much easier. On a hoist use a trans. jack for support if you have one. Worth while investment if you don't have one. Just took a oil pan off a 10 Mitchell that I thought was Alum. but discovered when it came down on my chest it was cast iron! Put it back on with the floor jack and cradle. Easy peasy
