Well we had everything bolted up yesterday, spacer, clutch, flywheel.. go to put the trans on and SAME issue as 2 to 3 years ago.. trans wouldn’t go on. Figured out that the guy either messed up when making the flywheel spacer or it’s not supposed to use a pilot bearing (which i doubt). There’s 10mm of interference between the bushing and the input shaft.. Back to the machinist to fix the issue..
Other things i DID get done yesterday are make the modified shifter mount. For those of you that don’t know the linkage on a z32 has a solid bar inbetween these mountings thats about 2-3 inches long or so. Cut that out and modified the stock mount. Before this i had it bolted to the car instead of to the trans. I think this is a much better design than before.
