    This isn't on my Blazer, but on an 84 K20. it got an SM465, and the clutch fork came out...from wha tI understand, its supposed to have a shaft between the two "prongs", and it slipped off. The part that swivels to engage the fork (mounted to the frame, tranny, and attached to clutch pedal) was messed with by the previous owner, and we took his junk off, and welded on a new piece, but its a little differrnt from stock. Instead of being straight, it has an angle in it, and the hole is a little out of position. Could this be the problem? What would be involved in putting the fork back in? Thanks, sorry if this was vague.

    A snowballs chance in heck with the engine and tranny bolted up. There is a ball mounted to the inside of the bell housing that faces forward and the there are two prongs on the back of the fork that have to go over it. They go over it from the passenger side toward the drivers side while you have to have the fork ends over the throwout bearing. You will more than likely need to separate the engine and tranny a few inches. That is fairly simple to do with a couple of floor jacks and a helper. While it is apart put in a new throwout bearing for good measure.
    Putting one of those forks on is hard enough with the engine out, I wouldn't even begin trying with them bolted together.
