Spinal stenosis is why my back is fucked up. Pinches the nerve for my right leg, its a genetic issue not a injury issue.

So now I need 3 sticks of HREW 1.75 .120 wall tube to build a cage. Anyone got a few sticks they want to sell for a reasonable price?

SLH Metals in Corunna usually has some. Don't remember the price last time I bought though.

Replace it with a AutoZone lifetime warranty one when I can afford it. The one that was in it was a 120k+ mile stock clutch from the parts car. I gotta pull the motor anyway and fix the oil leaks and notch the oil pan where the truss hits it.

Sounds like a good plan to me! I am unsure what type of throw out bearing (ie. One that's attached to the clutch slave or one that is on the clutch fork) but I highly recommend replacing the throw out bearing with a National bearing and not the one in the kit.

I do not think the clutch kit comes with a throw out bearing, but mine definitely needs to be replaced. it squeaks when you hold the clutch in for more than a few seconds

Every kit I've ever bought has had a throw out and pilot bearing

replace the top with a factory style one
replace the fuel lines with new stuff
install a 10 gallon fuel cell and a ford E2000 fuel pump
put the rear shocks through the floor
convert to heim steering
install a front locker and 4.30 gears
install the geo tracker hybrid rear axle housing i picked up, with 4.30 gears in the chunk
