So the clutch just went out on my truck, this makes me angry because I have
no money to pay for the replacement clutch let alone the installation. I am
really not to mad that the clutch went out though, because I knew it was old.
I am more made at the time that it happened, because it is right after
christmas and my family doesn't have any money to help me with the costs.
So here comes the question, do any of you know how much it would cost to
put a new clutch in a 1987 mazda b2200, it has a 5 speed transmission in
it. I don't want a heavy duty clutch unless you can find one for cheap, and I
don't need a high performance one or anything so if you could please help
me out.

A buddy of mine put a clutch in his civic.  The job costed $700 ish.  I'm not sure if he put the clutch in himself or if that was with labor.  I do know that it was a high performance "racing" clutch. 

Civics need high performance parts.

Junkyards FTW. I don't think many people keep parts in stock for you car, a junkyards your best bet. And don't even get me started on installation. Get some friends who know what their doing and do it yourself.

You might be better off just buying a similar transmission (used) from a junkyard if you can and dropping that in.

How much did you pay for the truck btw?

You should probably look into getting a new truck because fixing the truck you have probably isn't worth it.

Junk yard definatly to get you by for now. As far replacing it yourself, unless you have a cherry picker or a sturdy tree, you may have to take it to a mechanic.

I would go with the scrap yard route. Better chance of finding something there than online or in a store.

Im getting ready to build a 302 for my truck and because of this im gonna get a t-5 trans. I need to find a heavy duty cluth and ive came across a few that were pretty cheap. You have to just look around and you will find one, my suggestion would be to go around to the local salvage yard to find one.
Ps: Ill keep my eye out for yours while im looking for mine.

Thanks all you helpful people, after doing some research I can get just a
normal old clutch for around $120. As for the installation, that is still an
unknown, I have a good friend who went to college to become a mechanic
and he is supposed to be calling me with an estimate on how much it
would cost. If that is to high than I will continue to search for some one
else to install it.

As for the two of you who said I should go to live journal I really
appreciate your comments that you seem to use in every thread. I mean
they are just so clever... You snake are especially clever, I mean not being
able to think of something to say on your own makes you seem oh I don't
know how to say it... maybe intelligent. Well anyways, I hope you guys
get far in life because you have such good people skills.

EDIT:
SSOK I paid $400 for the truck, .357 I don't really want to drop the money
on a new truck. The reason being is, my dad will have his scion paid off in
2 years and I will then get that. So all I have to do is make my truck last
just another few years, and I think if I put a new clutch in it I will be fine
for quite a while.

Labor shouldn't be to bad. I wouldn't expect you to pay over $300 total.

Labor sucks on clutches. Having to take out the tranny means the shop will charge a good bit.

If you have the right stuff it's quite simple. But shops won't tell you that.

M5OD correct? Tell your friend you'll rent the xmsn jack and buy the beer. should take more than an afternoon unless your toasted the throwout bearing or hydraulics. $120 for a stock 10" clutch is a little high but not bad.

Truck goes on stands. Disconnect the linkage, speedo, driveshaft. Not 4x4 correct? Xmsn jack under xmsn. remove xmsn support. Remove bell housing bolts. drop the xmsn. remove bad clutch and install new. reverse to install. There is a lot more to it than that, but it's not a difficult job.

Well, I know I don't have the right stuff, because I would have to take out the engine to get to the tranny, that or jack it up pretty high. I don't have the right stuff to do either nor do I have the time, so I am hopping my friend is really nice and does it for next to nothing.

That would be freaking awesome, I would love to have a 4x4 but what all
would be involved in such a conversion. As for renting the lift and buying
the beer, sorry I can't remember your name, anyways that would be kind of
hard considering I am 16.
