    Clutch alignment tool

    Does anyone know if any of the major auto parts stores carry clutch alignment tools (just the tool)? I am currently stuck in the middle of my build because I can't find the tool that came with my clutch last year and The F$^#$& retards at Advance and Autozone don't have any clue what a clutch alignment tool is!!! How the hell can you work at an auto parts store and not know this shit!?!?!?!?

    salvo might be MD only, but they carry them i know for sure. if you can't find one you can buy one from a company for dirt cheap, but ya gotta wait for it to be shipped.

    I called NAPA and no go either...? All of the major chains said that they had no way of even ordering them... I just went ahead and ordered from Scoggin Dickey since that's the only other place I knew of that sells them.

    Probably could have ordered one from the GM dealer down the street but they are mentally retarted as well, and I have vowed never to do business with them again! Oh well, I guess it'll be a good thing cause I'll have to wait for someone else to help me put the motor/tranny/k member back into the car instead of doing it all by myself.

    meh, already have the tool coming in the mail, so I might as well wait lol. I thought about using a dowel or sockets but I'd rather pay 6 bucks and do it right
