Installing stock clutch setup in a 63 w/6 cyl. and the issue is how much clearance (if any) between the throwout bearing and the arms of the fork. Choices seem to be 'interference fit', snug but free(loose), or needing a rubber mallet to get the thing to go into the fork where it is supposed to be, which is the only viable choice at the moment. Perhaps a simple case of wrong fork to begin with? Thanx.

The 1962 - 67 Chevy II clutch fork is flat and short compared to other ones. Can you post a pic? Replacement throw out bearings being too tight is not uncommon. One option is to grind the fork down a bit in the trouble areas.

Three things in play: the fork, the bearing and the stud in the bell housing. Two different kinds of bearings (long and short), two lengths of stud (short and shorter) and a '62-'67 Nova only clutch fork. Some pictures of the parts you have would help.
