Advive on LT1 tremec. Clutch fork hits pressure plate.
« on: August 09, 2020, 06:23:03 AM »
I'm installing an LT1 Tremec out of a 97 Camaro in a 1987 corvette. It functions correctly but the clutch fork hits the pressure plate with pedal fully depressed.

I have read others have had this problem and fixed by grinding the fork but I really don't want to pull trans again. Is there a way to shim the slave cylinder or is there an adjustable one made?  There is no clutch adjustment on a c4 corvette.

Thank you.

This sounds more like a throw out bearing size or fork pivot point location issue.

No everything is good as far as parts. Fir some reason save is overextending. Is there an adjustable Lt1 slave cylinder or some kind of regulator that can be placed inline?

I installed a clutch pedal stop and bypassed the clutch safety switch. All is good. The C4 corvette hydraulic clutch system has no adjustment and is overwhelming for an LT1 T56.


Easy fix now that I know  :-)
