OK - you buy the FS Getrag clutch fork shaft (Design 1 in my case) and the bushings to go with it.
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
