    so yesterday after 2 hours of getting my butt kicked by the sm465/205 not wanting to go back in after a new flywheel pressure plate and clutch, i got it together a little while ago...now when i pull on the clutch fork, there is almost no resistance, remember i have no cab on so i can pull on it with my hand.... the new throwout bearing is about 1" thinner than the old one, i thought, well maybe it'll work, now im not sure... is what im experiencing due to the throwout bearing?

    sounds like the wrong throwout bearing. 1" is a lot in clutch terms

    If you have the money for a new one, try to find a throwout bearing the same size. I'd hate to see it all get put together only to have your old bearing crap out on you.

    well i put it back together with the old bearing, and no i didnt change the bushing... but the braze on the shifter is broken inside the trans so i have to get a shifter, the clutch fork and clutch fork ball is worn out so i have to get them too, when i get this pos pulled under my carport it'll all come back out, but it should be mobile for now...



    ****UPDATE****


    how is the best way to make manual clutch work with a body lift? 3"?? cut a new hole in the floor?
