I am going to try a trick with the old hub but I also have a new one coming. Another problem I have noticed is that the clutch release shaft is oversized a tad to where I cannot fit the release arm on (original or repro). About 2/5 too big. Does it have to be drilled out?

I think I saw that video, it was well made and made overhauling transmission easy, hard part was paying for all the parts.

Turns out I had the bearing on the wrong way thanks to the help of a friend! But my new problem is that the clutch release shaft is oversized a tad to where I cannot fit the release arm on. About 2/5 too big. I already put the fork on because I did not think of this and now I think the whole shaft has to come off to be thrown into a lathe. Thoughts?

Is the shaft oversize or you just think it is? 2/5 too big is a lot. Post a few photos so we can get an idea of the problem.

After more thought and looking at it, I think it may be a combination between the shaft being a tad oversized (probably closer to 1/5) and ghe new clutch arm being a tad too small.

Could an engine rebuilder ream your clutch arm to fit perfectly on the clutch shaft the same way they fit wrist pins to connecting rods? Connecting rod bushings are brass and your clutch arm is steel. That might be a problem?

Having a friend turn the shaft down a little in a lathe and ream the arm out a tad and hopefully that will do the trick and we can put it together. For now I have to go buy a new clutch arm as my other one I bought got destroyed in the process of getting it off!

Transmission is all back in the car now thanks to another guy in the club. It runs much quiter and the clutch is much easier to depress with the new arm. No more transmission leaks either with the new gaskets and me unclogging the vent hole in the tower.I am glad the whole experience is over and the car is back on the road for the rest of the driving season. Next project for winter is redoing the AR braking system.
