hey all. I just dropped the engine in my car yesterday and bolted up the tranny. I seem to have an issue though with the clutch fork and play. I purchased a throwout bearing form the local performance store that had been around since the 60's and the guy was very knowledgeable. I purchased the clutch fork from GM classics. My old fork with a different bellhousing was more angled or curved. The one from GM classics was flater. I am attaching two picks of the old fork and the slot where the fork sits with the bearing which you can see pretty clear. There is barely any movement left before hitting the bellhousing with the flat fork once the bearing hits the pressure plate as you can see in the picture. I am sure I have the bearing on correct and the fork is attached properly to the ball on the housing. I have not attached the bellcrank or linkage yet but it seems there should be more room than what I have to release the pressure plate. Not sure how geometry plays into hear Anyone experience this before. Am I using the wrong fork I got from GM Classics. The bellhousing is the correct one for the Nova. 309 I believe.
