replace the TO bearing, the pushrod, and the thrust plate when you do the clutch. your bentley manual has step by step instructions on how to do this. its really simple as long as you have the right tools.

The pushrod dosen't HAVE to be done, but I believe sometimes it can bend.

Do the crank seal and input shaft seal. Good insurance on keeping oil off the clutch. Better yet, just order the clutch install kit from GAP (or at least go and see what it contains and buy all that).

I managed to get my trans in without actually removing the passenger rear mount, but I would never do it again. I had an engine holder on the fenders and I driopped the trans side down and forward (I would reccomend undoing the passenger mount and also moving it as far to the pass. side as possible), and put the trans in diff-side down, and rotate it into place once the bellhousing is covering the flywheel.
