Clucth Fork SBF

Post by BigBlocksOnTop2 » Mon Jun 29, 2015 10:40 am

McLoad has one and I see one at Summit. There different and which one would you choose? Project ''Wakin Up the Dead'' went for a ride yesterday after a cam wipe and replacement. Turning into my driveway, the freeplay in the pedal went from 1'' to about 3'' immediately. I believe its the stock fork. There's a Hayes diaphram clutch and I believe 2450 lbs. It's the gold one.

If you haven't already, check if the top arm of your equalizer, or z-bar, has bent. Common problem.

I have beefed that up a long time ago. I believe what has happened is the Hayes release brg. is not configured like oem and the clutch fork was not riding on the brg. where it should have been. Replaced with SKF (configured oem) and alll is well.

Glad you got it worked out! You know, if you plan on putting quite a few miles on the car it's not a bad idea to add a zirc fitting to the z bar and be able to cycle fresh grease in over time.
