3.55 or 3.94?

Things to watch for

1. Don't break the tabs off of the throw out bearing when putting it on the clutch fork. It will make terrible noise.
2. Drop the drivers side of the motor as low as possible when putting the trans on, makes it a lot easier.
3. Buy a case of Molson, you'll need it
