Maintenance / Re: Brake pedal switch striker P/N 3917957
« on: November 24, 2022, 07:58:57 PM »
Thankyou for the info, now if I can actually find a place I can order 1 from..... (no ETA on this website) and hire a contortionist to get it installed would be great.

Maintenance / Brake pedal switch striker P/N 3917957
« on: November 24, 2022, 03:17:14 AM »
Does anyone have any photos showing how this part is installed on the brake pedal?

I have power brakes and a manual transmission so the clutch pedal is a major obstacle to work around to install/adjust the brake light switch as well.

Does anyone have a source for the P/N 3917957?

Does anyone have step by step instructions for installation of the brake light switch and the striker plate mentioned? Is it easier if you remove the drivers seat, etc.?

Maintenance / Balancing flywheel and clutch assembly together?
« on: November 24, 2022, 02:10:15 AM »
Has anyone heard of this? I recently purchased a Hays clutch kit along with a new flywheel and in the "Dos & Dont's Problems" paperwork from Hays
states "Hays recommends balancing clutch/flywheel as assembly before installation." The paperwork also states "Balance with crank if possible." Paperwork identifies this next to a problem of "Vibration at high RPM."

Just wondering if this balancing is really necessary or not and what other CRG experts might suggest. I do not intend to race the car, or rev the engine to extreme RPMs, it will only be an occasional street driver. I also don't want to put everything together to find out it needs to be disassembled to correct a clutch vibration problem.

A little off topic however I believe the following photos of synchronizer hub damage ultimately are the reason behind 1&2 shifting issues. This is a new transmission (never installed) from a shop up north (can't say) that was received with visible impact marks on the shipping box adjacent to the tail spline.

Question is the damage seen enough to cause the shift issues noted?

Thankyou all, I have not added gear oil due to the side cover being removed, I will add a little gear oil to the shift fork interfaces to see if that makes a difference, thinking will also add light grease to the cover arm detents to see if that helps. Thankyou for the reference to Paul C. @ 5Speeds I was thinking of calling him as well.

Update - Rotated 1/2 shift post to second gear position (not easily) with 3/4 and reverse in neutral positions and removed the cover, for some reason the 1/2 (part that slides on the main assembly with synchronizers that interfaces with the shift fork) is very difficult to move forward or backward (perhaps because it is new?). A little concerned how this difficulty will translate into the shifter brackets and linkage.

Thankyou for the response and photos, the transmission I have with the forward and reverse levers positioned as shown in the photos is not allowing the input/output shafts to rotate independently - they remain engaged for some reason. The transmission is a new (never installed) M22W I ordered. Sounds like it's time to remove the side cover to see what is going on. Anyone have any ideas what might be wrong with it or what to look for?

Assuming the 1+3,2+4 threaded shafts with 2 flat areas through the side cover are perpendicular to the housing as well as the reverse are perpendicular to the housing as well should be neutral correct? In the transmission I have the front and rear shafts rotate together - internal gearing seems to be completely engaged.

Does anyone have photos they can share of where the neutral positions should be for reverse relative to the tail housing and the forward gears from a side cover perspective? I presume when all of these are in the neutral position the output shaft should be able to be rotated independent of the input shaft - correct? If this is not able to be performed then I presume there is some sort of transmission assembly problem - correct?

Thankyou experts for responding, should make this job much easier! :)

Maintenance / Bell Housing PN 3998621 removal without engine removal
« on: November 06, 2022, 07:21:38 PM »
Has anyone been able to remove and reinstall a 621 bell housing in a 1968 camaro without removing the engine? From what I've read it seems it can be done but wanted to confirm with the experts. I plan to replace transmission, clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing, pilot bushing, and flywheel as well, so I need to be able to get the bell housing out/into the vehicle.
