Sooo you take out one 6 speed to install another 6 speed? Anything wrong with the first 6 speed? Or do you believe the mazdaspeed part has some extra voodoo?

I have about five from previous clutch jobs. No one around has one? Better yet, scrap the input shaft from an old transmission like a boss.

An old transmission input shaft would be best. It's about 3" from tip of the input shaft to where the second clutch plate teeth sit on the shaft so slop in my busted clutch tool = fail. Metal would = win

Thank you very much for the offer guys! I shredded the plastic on the first one trying to get it in so a loan would not be a good idea. I just picked up two tools from Finish Line performance so I should be good to go.

Also, I spoke with a shop who has installed several twin disc clutches and yes, proper alignment of the clutch teeth and the pilot bearing hole is critical.

I wondered this also. I mean, insert tool in disc splines, put tip in the pilot bearing, install pressure plate, remove tool.
so yeah...

If the teeth on the clutch plates are misaligned and you jam the tool in, the plastic tool will strip. When it strips, you get slop and that 3" distance means misalignment of the teeth and the pilot bearing hole. Fun

Man, be gentle with your car. Once the pressure plate on the clutch is torqued down, it will take whatever the clutch is rated to move it. In your case, 600ft/lbs. Did you really think that a plastic clutch tool would win vs. 600ft/lbs clutch? You HAVE to loosen the pressure plate......
