What he said. imp:You've got the bearing pushed too far into the fork, it doesn't ride in that position.
The two end tabs of the fork should be at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock on the lip of the bearing when the bearing is centered on the diaphragm clutch fingers.
Ericnova, you saw it and I didn't. I didn't even notice how far the bearing was pushed into the fork. I was just looking at the shape of the fork and it doesn't look like what I'm use to seeing. It still doesn't look like it's quite long enough.
Yes, I measured for the correct pivot ball length.Are you sure you have the clutch fork pivot ball at the correct length??
I don't remember what the exact distance is, Centerforce tech told me 25 or so years ago. Something like 6.75" from the block mounting face of the bell to the tip of the pivot ball. You should confirm with your clutch company what that dimension needs to be for their clutch.
1/8" difference in pivot ball height will make the outer end of the arm move nearly 7/8".
Dont worry about the bearing. The input shaft and bearing retainer will go through the bearing and center it up. Until you put the transmission in place the bearing can move all over and itll cause all the linkages to be misaligned.
