Yes, it's around the front drum I believe. The bad thing is, once it starts slipoing and burning up, it's not long before the other clutches start to burn up due to heat too. I have no experience rebuilding one, but I've watched enough on them that I'm sure I could do a pretty good job. I may buy a core to rebuild for the next time this one goes out. Either that or save up for a Performabuilt stage 2 4l60e.
