I am a new owner of 88 all trac. i am going to replace the clutch with an act clutch and flywheel set-up but wanted to know if there was a better setup on the market. Also just for kicks. Is it absolutely necessary to remove the entire head in order to get the intake manifold off. Thanks to all responses. I am a diy die hard so learning this platform is going to be fun as I am a honda guy.

The guys here swear by Exedy clutches. You can spend silly money on an HKS or Tilton multi - plate setup which will handle 800hp. (I put some pics on for u into my members gallery)

Can't see why you can't remove the manifold only, you may have to remove the fuel rail (3 bolts) and wiring harness first. Take some pics of where all those hoses go first!

Oh and don't forget to mark the injector connectors - took me weeks once to figure out why my fuel consumption was thru the roof & it was idling rough - now I have cable ties on them so I can't do it again.

I was looking at the fuel rail and all and i see that its just going to be a pain in the butt gettin to the bolts underneath the intake manifold. thats why i asked if it were necessary to take the entire head off. but thanks for the info on the clutches

Saw a new range of nice looking clutches and light flywheels yesterday.
They are made in Australia by Xtreme and available in all combinations

You shouldnt have to take off the rail to get the mani off. In fact it is the opposite. It is a real bitch to get the rail out with the mani still in there.
