Maintenance to Do w/ Tranny Off


Recommended Posts

doing my clutch next month ('99 box). while the transmission is off, i plan on:

- replacing the rear main

- re-surfacing the flywheel

- replacing the pilot bearing (most clutch kits don't seem to include it)

- intermediate shaft seal & bolts

- replace 4 crankcase bolts w/ new type

anything else i should take care of while i'm in there?

I suggest you go hang around the best Porsche tech you know and watch them replace an RMS and IMS (or two or three). Then, if you can, borrow the installation tools.

good advice. with all of the RMS issues in particular, i'm sure depth / technique is paramount. thanks.

Also, from my experience with clutches, most of them come with a release bearing (throw out bearing) and generally the bearing that comes with the clutch is a POS. Make sure whatever your using is OEM from Porsche because aftermarket bearings never seem to last. I do about 3 clutches a year on my talon and the release bearing lasts about 1 year with me going through 3 clutches, but twice I used the aftermarket bearings that came with my clutches (ACT and Competition Clutch) and both times they failed fairly early. They don't lock up or anything but make noise all the time, and when you push the clutch the noise goes away which is the sign of a smoked release bearing.

Anyway not sure how it works on a BOX but make sure you're using OEM part for that, don't wanna go back in to change it because a cheap bearing that came with the clutch failed. If your buying a Saches clutch, don't just assume the release bearing it comes with is OEM, it might not be.
