Replacing the clutch.
The old (Original 1975 clutch) suddenly failed with a cracking noise.
Thought this was an easy task, but not so. Especially without a garage lift.
Thanks a lot to my danish friend Per, his help in the process proved to be priceless.

The clutch pressure plate broke, most likely due to material fatigue.

The clutch plate was also quite worn.

(Left picture): After a few hours of work our spirits were still high. (Right picture): After about 20 hours I looked like this. :-)

Done and ready for another season.

While at it we replace the rear mufflers and reroute the rear exhaust pipes.

How to tighten the difficult rear headers bolt on a '55 Chevy :-)
