sbc mated to '40 Ford tranny

I have installed a 327 sbc in my '40 Ford. 14" flywheel, 10' Ford clutch plate, Chevy pressure plate, Crager adaptor. The problem is the '40 clutch linkage will not push the throwout bearing far enough into the pressure plate diaphram to disengage the clutch plate. Any ideas?

Did you get any kind of installation instructions and/or dimensions to measure from and to? If not, call and talk to Bob Bendtsen at 763-767-4480. He sells Cragar adapters and is a gee-whiz at mating anything to anything.

Thanks for the referral. The problem doesn't seem to be in the adaptor. It is pretty standard for this swap. The problem is the length of the clutch pedal rod and yoke end. They don't turn the rod in the transmission that pushes the forks forward far enough. I have put in a longer yoke end and it does depress the diaphram, but not enough to disengage.
