OK - you buy the FS Getrag clutch fork shaft (Design 1 in my case) and the bushings to go with it.
Item http://fierostore.com/Produ...ail.aspx?s=54030&p=1

You go through all the grief of getting that "darned" bottom bushing out and get the shaft, bushings and release bearing installed.
Everything looks good - you bolt the transmission to the engine and drop it on the cradle. So far so good...

NOW you go to install the clutch slave cylinder and something doesn't fit quite right. I thought I had screwed up somewhere.



BUT I remembered Troy mentioning something about this when he rebuilt the Getrag I was installing in my Indy.
There is something odd about these FS Getrag clutch shafts - they "clock" wrong. (this is the 2nd one I had bought)

A phone call to Troy and I knew what to do. Remove the clutch arm to modify it (NOT the shaft).
Using a round file, file off the first tooth by the "8" and slightly elongate the bolt hole. You can install "1 tooth over".



Guys: Troy Ritchie is now at Mr. Transmission in Red Deer

I would think you could get the same result with a slightly shorter actuating rod?.. No?

I just can't believe that they can't even make a straight piece of steel correct. Their usual quality inspector must have looked these over before shipping

I wonder it this had anything to do with my clutch fork slipping off my throw-out bearing two times on my 88 GT. This destroys the fork and pressure plate each times it happens. I don't know how it can do this unless somehow its over extending.
