Steve - Everything you read here is absolutely true. Absent the size and weight of a transmission, a job like this is no different than any number of others you may face with this or any other car. Getting the car off the ground to a proper height is critical. Too low and you can imagine what will happen. Too high, on the other hand, can be equally problematic. I have done 5 clutches in my life, but none on my Alfa. Two Vegas (go ahead and laugh - I don't care as they weren't my cars) and three on Volvos. The first Volvo was the worst as my friend and I were in another friends garage pit, which was a couple of feet deep. We went in with our tools and the other friends pushed the car over us. They drank beer while we worked - hard - and transmissions are heavy, especially when your arms are tired. The others we did as Andrew describes - the trans comes out, onto your chest, and you slowly roll it onto the ground, making sure you start and end the project with ten fingers. So now I am 55, and when the clutch goes, someone else is going to do it.
