Clutch Fork problem

Postby mnofal225 » Thu Oct 03, 2013 8:17 am

so recently i have installed my new clutch and one of my dads friend offered him to install my clutch for me. so of course i did and when i got the car back the engagement point was all the way at the top of pedal. so i replaced my master cylinder and that did not help. so then i went to install the new slave cylinder and i noticed that my clutch fork was not forward all the way on top of the slave cylinder pin thing. i could litteraly take out the pin part with my fingers because there was that much space. what do you guys think. i know this should not be like this and it is really annoying me. even though i barely have to press on the clutch pedal to engage into a gear im just so used to the clutch engaging towards the bottom of the clutch and i prefer i that way.


here is a pic of the clutch fork. i know that shoudnt not be like that and i say an s13 at the junkyard and that clutch fork was pressed up pretty much all the way on the slave like it should be. and like i stated before i can pull out that pin on the slave free with no problem or using any force. please i am in need of assistance. thank you guys and God bless.

The clutch fork popped off the pivot inside. The transmission will need to be separated again to address the issue. Also, your slave cylinder's piston popped out. Be sure to put it back in. I've seen slaves go bad and start to leak because the piston popped out like that

Thank you so much i will try it and also I forgot to mention that like as I try to speed up the transmission is slipping bit no grinding or anything and it was fine before the clutch install
And also the car vibrates a little when I go in reverse or first gear and I think it has to do with the TOB but unsure of how to fix it

Do you really need to Seperate the Trans and Bell Housing to get the Clutch Fork back on???? on My Wifes car the Clutch Fork came off of the Throwout Bearing .I am installing a new Clutch Slave Cyl and noticed that the Fork came off of the Bearing. I am selling this Car ASAP .

I was able to finagle mine back in by looking/manipulating it through the side opening with the boot removed.

I took the Boot off and lined it all up again I could not get the Rod on the Slave Cyl back on to the Fork. I took one of the bolts out of the Slave Cyl and Rotated it so the Rod would go into the Fork . BANG it worked . Back on the Road again Thank you Father GOD.

^That's pretty much how I did it. I may have taken both slave bolts off though IIRC. Its been a while.
