Well my trans will be in tomorrow or Thursday. Today I did the rear diff oil and started to soak the Barnett clutch pack in moto oil.A barnett clutch is only about 150$. Little risk. buying the oem laminar pack and a new basket will set you back 2300$. With time on our hands why not try the Barnett. Don't forget do not use the spacer and spring that goes with the small first plate towards the pressure face with a Barnett pack. Be sure to save it though in case you go back to stock parts. It is really pesky to scissor the the gear drive together to get it back in. The factory tool was useless. I ended up with a piece of bent welding rod in the hole using needle nose vice grips to tension the gears and insert the tool. you will know when you are in far enough when the gear faces are flush. That means the oil drive sprocket in the back of the clutch has meshed properly. Some have tightened things up without the pins or dogs engaged and it is not good. The tension on the oil pump drive chain is a little more that what is needed to keep the left side from touching anything when you press on it. I have the tool but it ends up like that. It took me several attempts until I figured that just do it by hand.
Take some emery paper and smooth up the edges on the tangs where the plates have worn. Don't remove much metal, just take out burrs and sharp edges.
My barnett clutch pack didn't come with spacer and spring. So the small plate is the first plate that goes in towards the engine when putting the clutch pack in the basket.
