Before the new trans and Clutches Unlimited racing clutch could go in, the old trans and clutch had to come out. The trans wasn't an issue, but the original pilot bearing proved stubborn, to say the least. Demonteverde actually broke a slide hammer trying to get the bearing out and had to take time to rebuild the hammer before he could start whanging on it again. It eventually came out after he took a die grinder and chisel to it.
