So I pulled out my old TH350/NP205 in favor of the sm465/np205. Well first off, its very difficult to remove a tranny from a truck with 7" of lift and 42s. Anyway, I put the manual tranny in, then removed it, then put it in again, and now its got to come out once more. Seems that the release bearing is pushing through the pressure plate or something. I put the 12" hd clutch and pressure plate on it, the one with just the 3 fingers. I guess tomorrow I'll pull it again a try a stock pp and clutch disk. All I know for sure is that this sux. This is kinda a vent but would consider any advise that you may have to offer. I've put manual trannys in before but I've never had this much trouble.
