    I will be installing a new pressure plate, clutch disk, throwout bearing, and slave cylinder this weekend in my 93 F**D F-250 7.3 IDI diesel. Is there anything I need to know or is it straight forward?

    Im going to purchase a "clutch kit." In this kit it has a "clutch tool" What is this for?

    When you install the clutch plate, you use the tool to keep the plate centered while you bolt the pressure plate (spring loaded thingy) in place. In other words, the tool is used to keep everything centered so that the shaft of the tranny can slip right in...just don't forget to take the tool out once you have everything in place...Did that make sense?
