just finished replacing the clutch in my 93 legacy (cable clutch)
one of the springs in the clutch plate had come out, one of the tabs on the TOB broke off and retaining springs were missing.
new clutch kit from excedy #15010, had the flywheel turned
with everything bolted together the clutch fork can has no resistance in its entire traval. the throw out bearing only makes contact with the pressure plate once the fork is maxed out against the tranny case.
i measured all the old parts (pressure plate and throw out bearing) and they are the same dimensions as the new on. Even tried with the old pressure plate installed. the travel on the TOB and clutch fork seem normal, the TOB slides to the end of the smooth section on the tranny shaft.
I can not figure out where this extra space is coming from, it is roughly a 1/2" that the TOB can move freely.
Is there any chance that the machine shop took that much material off the from the fly wheel. Is there any kind of spacer between the fork and the TOB. Would a bent fork cause this?
I feel like i am missing something obvious but i have had the engine on and off the tranny three times now it i cant figure it out.
im open to any possibilities
