well i feel like an idiot. the bolts for the pressure plate aren't threaded all the way up. now that the flywheel is thinner i need bolts that are threaded all the way up is all. **** like this always happens when im in a rush and trying to save money, my original plan was to get new hardware anyway. i always end up doing stupid things like this when im working in the driveway as apposed to on a lift, i forget to check all the details because im so miserable under the truck i just want to get it done lol. I cost myself so much time and effort today for nothing! now im gonna spend all Christmas trying to remove a broken off bolt in a flywheel... great
lol oh well, as long as it gets done.
