Anyone that works in a dealership (service dept. perfered).....

What does the book/computer say is the chargeable time for replacing a clutch? Just curious as how long to expect to take when dropping the auto tranny/t-case, swapping out the flywheel, installing the clutch, and reinstalilng the manual tranny/t-case...

I don't work at a dealership, but the last time I priced this service (to install the clutch I already bought for my '93 Escort), "the book" charge was 7.5 to 8.5 hours. That, I assume, includes the time/labor to remove and turn the flywheel -- so, if you have a new or already-turned flywheel, it should take less. In any case, the cheapest I could find around here to do the job was starting at $750 and going up from there! (since this would have eclipsed the value of the vehicle, with or without a new clutch installed, I never actually had this work performed)

It may be considerably less time on a Ranger (which is rear wheel drive) than on an Escort (which is front wheel drive), though... so, best option is to just call around a few places and ask for ballpark estimates.

looking through stealership receipts.............edit soon

receipt doesn't list hours, but when I supplied my center force dual friction kit Ford charged $400 in labor and 111.22 in parts (6L5Z-7A508-AA cylinder assembly) for the install.
