Like the steering wheel in a pirate’s pants, google is drivin’ me nuts. When the would-be home mechanic wanting to work on a London Black Cab looks up clutch, he finds a feast of handbags and not a mess of gears and plates.
Every time I look up FX4 I get stinking Ford trucks rammed down my throat.
I have to believe that someone out there on the interwebs has changed a clutch on an FX4 and tell me some basic things like where it is and what it looks like.
After watching a 2 minute video of “how a clutch works“, I guess I could look for a flywheel and start undoing things bolts and see what comes off. From what I can tell I’m looking for a master cylinder, a slave cylinder, a clutch plate and a clutch cover assembly. Oh, and I’m supposed to hoist the engine up with some string thrown over the garage door opener.
How hard can it be? <– famous last words. Expect cussing and bellowing from the garage next week.
