Is there supposed to be any play in the clutch fork left to right? Not in and out, but should it be able move like the hands on a clock any?
It’s going to move some, but it shouldn’t have a large swath. How much movement are we talking about?
I have max motors quadrant, cable, and firewall adjuster. I replaced the oem stuff because the cable had stretched. I could hear the TOB rattling. It’s new as well as the clutch.If it has tension on it, it means your throwout bearing is riding on the PP. Not good.
It’s not noisy now though. The noise actually went away when I band-aided the clutch cable by taking the slack out with zip ties.I don’t think you have a cable issue. You’re going to wind up pulling the box and doing some investigating. You already know the TOB is noisy, so there’s your first clue...
Yeah, the TOB was rattling at idle it wouldn’t go into gear so I replaced the cable. The TOB no longer rattles but it still won’t go into gear all the time.I suppose the cable could be poorly designed and the sheath/housing could be compressing when under heavy load. This could interfere with disengagement and cause those symptoms.
Was it also having the disengagement issues on the original OEM cable you replaced?
What would I need to buy remedy the pivot part if itMight not be the TOB or the fork itself. It might be the pivot point the forks works off of. Have you checked to make sure the pivot part is solid? Not sure how your year/model is set up but this picture of a 1969 Mustang 351W bellhousing/fork shows the part that is critical.
I put a Lakewood scattershield on my Torino Cobra's 429SCJ back in 75 and back then we didn't have the bolt quality we do now. The bracket bolts broke on me and the fork worked somewhat, but only enough to get me home to figure it out.
‘95 Mustang GT T5.I reread this post and I don't see it anywhere on just what we are working on here? Year, engine, trans type, etc?
BallWhat type of pivot is it, ball or metal clip?
I wonder why it shifts it well before it’s up to operating temp?Looking at the picture and watching the video, could the fork be bent? That would change it completely? Or maybe the pivot ball has worn thru the fork on the other side. That would also change how it works properly.
