Jeff, my clutch actually went out 2 weeks ago and I just did it myself for the very first time. How mechanically deficient are you? What have you done? The job is a piece of cake.

For a quick rundown
-Exhaust has to come off
-Downpipe has to come off (3 bolts from header to 2 bolts to exhaust
-Driveshaft needs to go: 3 bolts on one end, 4 bolts on the other. The pipe wrench is needed to get the large nut loosened.
-Shift knob needs to come off entirely as the tranny needs to get dropped. ( 2 bolts at the shift linkage )
-2 Harness clips on both sides of the tranny need to be unclipped.
-2 bolts for clutch cylinder plus ground
-a lot of bolts around the tranny itself.
-Positive cable has to be removed.
-Crossmembers
-6 bolts on clutch itself which are revealed by unbolting the metal plates on both side.
-2 bolts to remove starter. On one of the bolts that connect to the starter, I tried a small socket and open wrench but there just wasn't enough room to play around w/ to get that top bolt off. There are about 4 bolts on the very top of the bellhousing tranny itself. I used 2 extensions to get the bolts removed. Each extension was about a foot and a half long . Push down on the tranny to get the extension and socket over...literally over the tranny itself and a wrench on the other end to have them removed. You would literally be un screwing the top bolts off from behind the tranny area.

Everything is pretty straight forward.

You all are right it won't work since the tool arms are too big. Go figure Toyota would've made a larger TOB for the Supra. The autozone guy I talked to was pretty cool considering after I broke one of their 100 dollar torque wrenches he adviced me to cut one of the arms shorter so it would fit.
