Make sure the clutch is centered.


Showed up to a friends a few weeks ago to help him install his TR6 transmission.  


After 90 minutes of struggle, we double checked the centering of the clutch and discovered that he had not fully inserted the clutch alignment tool into the pilot bearing, so he thought it was centered, but it was not.


After proper centering, we popped it on in 5 minutes…………

A light coat of oil on the splines aids the insertion.. after that it requires muscle for the first 1" to get parallelism of the splines... Muscle.

I've done this a few times;  IIRC it always takes a bit of fiddling to get them to mate up. How far out is it; an inch or so the first motion shaft is probably butting-up against the spigot bearing, any more and you might be facing the same issue Simon said he had?

Can you be more specific?   Not sure why you even have the shifter still attached.  It can poke you in the eye.   You just need to make sure the tranny is in one of the gears so you can rotate the output shaft if necessary to make the input shaft splines mate with the clutch splines.

Try as two of us can, we could not get the tranny back in the car. Is there a specific position it has to be to mate?  I heard the shifter at about the 10 oclock position but that didn't seem to work.
