Last year, when I was doing the clutch on my car. It 
seemed that pretty much, I would spend one night, not 
being able to do something (anything!) and the next night
it would go in easy (ok, relatively).

Mating the engine and tranny backup. I realigned the 
clutch (with the $8 plastic tool) probably 4-5 times
before I got it. I also, tipped the engine on it's nose
so that I was working, more or less, up and down. 

And I only smashed 2 fingernails! :-) Though I'm thinking
that was on a failed night.
