    I picked it up from our salvage yard which seems to be where I get most of my vehicles. I should have took pictures before hand but it really wasn't that bad. I don't know what it hit but it was a pretty light hit. It looked like something kind of sharp not like a deer. I have a total of 4 hours into it tearing apart and putting it together so it was by far one of the easiest rebuilds I've ever done. It got there the day before I bought it, a Mexican was in line before me but he decided to pass which I was kind of surprised about.

    Well tues I put a fuel pump in the Cavalier and sold it for $400 bucks to a local kid for a work car and he was tickled pink. I put about 700 miles on the Tuscon and finally got it licensed on wed and Thur morning the throw out brg went out of the clutch, !@#$%^&*( I guess I should have kept the Cavalier, It seems like there's always somthing.

    Sorry for the setback... but, you know how it is, right?

    It didn't go awful getting the clutch out, I was able to pull the trans back far enough to yank everything out without removing the cradle all the way. I only had to take the front bolts out and drop it down a bit. Here is the clutch which was pretty thin and the offending bearing.

    It probably had a driver that liked to rest his/her foot on the clutch pedal. Nice to see you didn't have to blow it all apart to fix it.
