    Yeah especially trying to bear hug it with your arms and legs while wiggling it into place 6 inches off the jack. (Yeah I had no help save for the wife who, put kindly, is no help)

    What does the small adapter fitting look like? I appear to have everything I need, but I didn't ask for anything special.

    Re: Monster Clutch Install

    Maybe this is an odd question but everything is apart now for install other than the flywheel. It looks like the bolt holes are partially covered by the flywheel plate or something and can't get to the flywheel bolts. WTH. Can someone give me a heads as to what bonehead manuever i'm not doing right here.

    You need to keep going.

    I think you still have the pressure plate mounted.

    Pressure plate is not on there. The dual mass part is not lining up.

    Pictures would help you know what you mean.

    Since the dual mass FW turns while it's still mounted, have you tried turning it back and forth to show the bolt heads?

    Look at the pics on the first page. It's the small fitting that screws into the slave cylinder.
