What is the flywheel step height?
What is the with of the contact end of the shift fork?

I think you may be right about the pp. Just being a little off. Unless your tob is incorrect size.

If you can still press the slave back by hand you shoud be fine.

The flywheel was turned down by JAM down to .608 and I verified the measurement myself.




The clutch fork is in good condition. The pivot ball area isn't worn and the fork is straight (verified both by comparing to a new one).

Someone on T00ners said you're supposed to have some free play at the top of the clutch pedal travel. He said I should feel slight pedal movement at the top before you feel it pushing the plunger in the master cylinder. I've never really paid much attention to this, but it makes some sense. Thoughts?

Just ran across this. I don't know how, but I've never seen it before. Some good tips about the cruise-cut switch. I'll try that and see where I'm at: click

Sorry bud I put mine back together with the flywheel at .015 step and its working with no shim. I didn't even adjust my pedal after install. Which I probably should. Mine looked like yours did when I had a 2.5mm shim. last time around. Only other thing I changed was the fork because between the two I had one measured thincker than the other at the tob contact end.

Do yo have another pp to compare thickness?

.015? Is that a typo?

In theory, the flywheel step from the flywheel surface to the top step shouldn't affect clutch fork position. The step from the flywheel surface to the top step will affect how the clutch disc engages/disengages.

The overall height of the flywheel (measurement from the mounting flange to the top step) will affect clutch fork position. In my case, the top step was cut down which should move the PP closer to the block, and make the clutch fork sit more toward the passenger side of the car. But I'm not really seeing a difference, which leads me to believe this PP is just screwy. I've literally inspected/changed/adjusted everything else in the system that would have an effect on clutch fork position.

Quoting GSTwithPSI:

He said I should feel slight pedal movement at the top before you feel it pushing the plunger in the master cylinder. I've never really paid much attention to this, but it makes some sense.

The freeplay should be evident in the clevis pin. Basically you want movement there before engagement so that you are not always depressing the plunger as you mentioned.
