The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

help with throw out bearing/slave

Post  dougs951s on Thu Jun 08, 2017 7:50 am

So guys, I am running an 86 corvette throw out bearing and clutch slave since that is what I took out of the car. I have what I believe is a T56 clutch fork, is that the correct one? It almost seems too short.. Correct me if I'm wrong, but there isn't a guide tube for the bearing or anything like that right?

My problem is my clutch doesnt appear to be releasing all the way. I'm having an issue where it appears the operating rod on the clutch slave is contacting the fork at a weird angle; that is to not straight up and down. I am also having a extremely hard time assembling everything inside the bellhousing. This is my assembly procedure, please tell me if I'm doing something wrong.

1. slip TT into BH
2. Slide fork with TOB installed onto TT input shaft, it just sorta floats on the splined shaft for now
3. continue sliding TT forward, guide splines into clutch and pilot bearing
4. slide fork backwards so the spring clip grabs the pivot bolt head and locks in place

My problem is that with the shaft in place and the TOB centered on the fingers of the pressure plate, the fork is pulled too far "in" to the bellhousing, which makes the fork not contact the pivot at the correct indented point. Since the fork is pulled too far into the bellhousing, this also makes the slave rod contact the fork at a weird angle.
