    not that hard at all. Basically just remove anything that interfears with getting the tranny seperated from the block rear mount, tranny mount,axles, etc.. Don't need to pull the tranny out completely just enough to get in there and change the throwout bearing. Although it would be alot easier to remove it. You have a book just read it and go step by step. Its really the only way your going to learn is just go in and do it.

    prepare to have a real good fight with the roll pin on the shift linkage and make sure you don't drop the gear from the speedo cable into the tranny.

    ive done this many times and you don't have to drop the exhaust. and the speedo gear should not fall into the tranny.

    Tip for putting the tranny back on:

    Get the shaft lined up and pushed in there, and with one of your friends pusing the tranny in towards the block, rotate the crank from the other end of the motor with a socket. The splines will eventually line up and it'll slide right in.
