Default Clutch fork problem

I've searched for about two hours now and haven't found anything. I'm putting the engine into my bugeye and the clutch fork will not align with the holes for the shaft. I've tried wiggling it around and made sure the car was in neutral and such. I'm stuck on this on...

Anyone? I can't get the holes on the fork to line up with the ones on the trans for the pin to go thru.

I've had this work for me before.

In the handbook it recommends putting the throw out bearing on, and putting the fork through the bearing before closing up the housing.

Try putting the throw out bearing on, aligning it straight and level, then close the bell housing and THEN feed the fork through the hole and push it into the bearing holds. Use a flashlight to double check and make sure the fork is going the right way. The pin should fit with ease in the hole at that point.

Patience is a virtue with that job, if need be take a beer break

Also the throw out bearing may not be on properly....make sure it's all the way on, hat will throw the whole god damn thing off.

I'm trying to put the TOB on the fork and then putting the motor in. But I can't get the fork to go up any, that's the only issue I'm having. I've moved that thing in every direction and have gotten nowhere.. It seems like the only way to get it to line up is to unbolt the cylinder from the trans, but there is no way that is necessary.

Throw out bearing on first, then feed the fork in as last step

Didn't work, the fork will not move up either way I try it. It's fully depressed into the cylinder.

Is your clutch slave cylinder still connected to your trans? If so, unbolt the 2 bolts holding it on and ziptie it out of the way.

Unbolted it from the trans and it seemed to fix the problem, but now something is stopping the motor from fully going on the trans. I have about an inch of space between the two. Nothing is hitting or blocking it that I can see..

IF your certain the clutch fork and TOB are on properly and you have the dowel pins lined up then you may have to put some bolts on and start tightening it down.

I just went through this a month ago.

On to another problem, the pin inside the cylinder came out and is almost stabbed through the rubber boot.. I'm calling it a day.

I unbolted the cylinder from the trans and put the pin back inside of the cylinder, put the boot back on and now the bracket won't line up with the bolts on the trans...

Bump, can anyone help me out with this? Everything is put together right, is it possible that the cylinder itself is bad?

I'm not exactly following, the slave cylinder bracket won't align up? Can you take a picture?

Correct, it's about half an inch away from bolting back up to the trans. I can but I'm not sure if I can upload it I here from my phone.

Did you take out the small sliding pin that locks the tranny ? I assume you took it off to get the motor out, but if you reinstalled it or got the car without a motor and it was reinstalled, than the tranny will never meet up with the motor until it is removed. It is a small sliding pin located right below the clutch master cylinder on the drivers side.

I got the trans mounted up already, throw out bearing and fork assembled correctly, but I had to unbolt the cylinder from the trans in order to get the pin into the fork. Now the bolt holes on the cylinder bracket won't align back up to the holes on the trans, they are about half an inch above them.

This is with the cylinder fully depressed and the clutch let out.

Are all the bolts secure on the bell housing? How about the tranny mount?
