i currently have to tcase and trans out of my b2. i am replacing the clutch that only had 1000miles on it that i smoked already..... well keeping in mind i smoked a clutch in 1000 miles does anyone have any reccomendations of upgrades or changes i can make easily with the trans and tcase out? i am putting the best zoom clutch summit sells in to try and avoid having to pull the tranny again around new years. i already am going to lenthen all the vent tubes.

ideas on how to keep the bellhousing vented but keep as much water out as possible?

anyone in northern ohio have a u-joint style driveshaft for a b2 sitting around they can sell for cheap? i dont know what lenth it is but will measure. i also need the metal sheild that helps protect the tranny/clutch, it bolts between the bellhousing and the motor.


backround= it has a electric tcase, fm146, and that tulip/cv style driveshaft.

tranny should be out about a week. hope to put it back together next sunday if the cash is availibe for the 300+ dollar clutch.......

did you replace the slave cylinder when you replaced your clutch the first time?

i am up in the air on the slave cyl. i know the master cyl leaks very slightly (toped it off 3 times in 1000miles). the slave is 100 bucks from summit but if i do that i will spend the extra 60 or so and replace it all. it will take a few more weeks to have the cash to fund that so i am not shure.

Im assuming this is behind a 2.9? If so, you could do the 4.0 clutch upgrade....

if hadent JUST replaced the flywheel when i did the last clutch i would be doing that without a qestion but i would need to buy yet another flywheel and a 4liter starter and that would end up running atleast 500 probly more like 650. i am almost positive that the top end zoom clutch will out proform a stock 4 liter clutch. i was looking into that and WILL be investing the cash if i smoke this clutch within the next year.

wheeling vehicles like you stole them is fun til shit like this happens!

Just replace the slave cylinder while the tranny is out so you won't have to remove it again. You should definitely replace that master too, leaky clutch systems are not good at all.

there are the stock ranger 12 hole aluminums (4), stock ranger turbine style aluminum from my old 92 STX (4), 4 steel stockers that are on the b2. the steel rims are a little bit rusted and the aluminums are a little oxidized but all the sets can be cleaned up to a acceptable apearance.
