I managed to make my sub-1000 mile clutch go bad. Brand spanking new EVERYTHING except the pedals and bellhousing. I think there is something (probably loam, cat tails, and mud) keeping the pressure plate from applying the clutch. I tried hosing it out. The clutch still slips so bad that it can barely move the truck in low range second gear. I suspect it is going to require me to pull the clutch apart. It took me roughly 6 hours to get my clutch and 465/208 bolted up last time because I couldn't get the 465 to hit the pilot bearing. And this was having the benefit of having no cab or anything on the vehicle. It sucked so bad having those benefits now I'm dreading it to the point where I'm considering saying piss on it and replace it with a 700R4/NP208. Is it possible to slide the complete 465/208 back and leave them attached then try to slide it back in later or is this going to be nearly impossible? Is it always easier to bolt the bellhousing to the block then try to stick the transmission into the clutch/pilot?
