    I just spent the last 2 nights(5:30 to 2:30) swaping in a 465 under my Blazer. We got everything bolted up and started her up. I tried to move it and the clutch wouldn't disengage. The linkage(mechanical) is adjusted all the way out but it still isn't far enough.
    It is a 465/208 combo with mechanical linkage. I used what I was told is a 1982 pick-up for the pedals and linkages and flywheel. Could there be some differance between the trans and the linkages?

    i ran into the simailar problem when i bought a new brute force clutch. it seemed that the friction disc was larger than the bolt pattern would allow, after giving it a bit of gas while lightly pressing the break it broke loose. i also have had problems with the aftermarket shift forks, they seem to be the wrong shape and do not seat on the pivot ball correctly. just my $.02

    Make sure you have the right length throw-out bearing also
    as well as the length of fork!

    There is a "length" difference (relative to how fork pushes on the clutch) between a hydraulic clutch fork and manual clutch.

    See my sig. I had the description wrong when I first posted these pics, now the description is right.

    Good luck.
