My clutch fork has slipped 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. The first time I had bought the car and drove about 800 miles. The second was after a complete rebuild with all the components new including the clutch fork lasted 1400 miles. Does anyone know what causing this?
The slave cylinder I sure was replace by the previous owner. I know it’s the correct length push rod because when I was a newbie at bleeding the clutch I looked into that. The Getrag tranny was original to the car as is the 2.8. I replace the flywheel and installed a new clutch kit the later was an AC Delco (made by Sachs) both ordered from Rock Auto. I also installed a new clutch fork (ordered from Sachs) since it was damaged from trying to chew through the pressure plate’s spring fingers. Somehow the clutch fork is getting driven past the throw-out bearing. I guess I try to find out if I have the correct slave cylinder. Is there a particular clutch kit that you would recommend? Thanks for the quick reply.
I guess when I get around to removing the clutch I will check out the slave cylinder to make sure it's correct. But first I have to work on numerous home projects for my wife since I spent all last winter doing a engine/drivetrain rebuild and this summer going to car shows. Has anyone else had this clutch fork problem? Max
