    I had a bunch of shifting issues at Hallett this year, ended up destroying the throw out bearing, melting the clutch spring fingers, and turning the front bearing retainer on the T5 blue. Take the shift fork cover off and try to see if anything is obviously wrong in there. Maybe the new cable is getting hung up? Can you float the gears between 2-3 without the clutch while moving?

    Hopefully it's not an issue inside the box.

    So the transmission is coming out and going to the rebuilder to see whats up. I plan to replace all hardware and bearings. Does it matter where I get the pilot and throw out bearings from? There is a lot of difference in price out there. Also what about clutch choices? This is all new to me so I don't even know where to start except maybe lightest as possible.

    I run a spec clutch and flywheel, because they have a contingency - I don't think it much matters. I've got national brand parts store stuff in mine and it seems to be fine. All the LS camaro work we've been doing with the #82 uses parts store stuff for pilot/throw outs and it's fine, the engines on the other hand...

    I think the rules are explicit in saying you have to run a steel flywheel, so keep that in mind.

    If no luck inside the tranny, have a look at the clutch fork and throw out bearing. Beat my head over the wall with a clutch issue that was finally resolved with a new fork. LMR sells a Ford racing kit for trivial dollars that I keep in my box of spares.

    Yeah I think I am just going to replace everything and save the old stuff for spares. And yes steal flywheel with a minimum weight if I remember right.

    I have a 20% off coupon from LMR so good timing. Thanks

    Not sure on part number, it was in the car when I got it. Maybe Tyler knows?
