Are you sure the slave cylinder is not depressing the fork too much when it's bolted in causing it to slightly release it? That would cause it to slip but I wouldn't think the vibration.

if all you changed was the bell housing it sounds like you didn't install the different front bearing retainer for the throw out bearing to slide on.

About to admit a stupid on my part but when we did the tranny swap to newer trans and external slave, it started vibrating and releasing very low to the floor.... went nuts trying to figure it out and found the bolts between the bellhousing and engine had backed out..... tightened them up and all is well once again

Just sayin....

Not the sharpest bulb in the box....

Bearing retainer was also replaced with the right one.

Hey...I got the skid tightened down, engine bolts are tight - still having the same problem.

Here's a question though - how close is the throwout bearing supposed to fit over the bearing retainer "tube"? I remember there being a bit of play around the tube section. Is this normal, or should it be pretty well constrained?

...is the shift fork installed properly? you said it was used, bent maybe? is it nice and flat? maybe the other end came off the ball?

Check the u bolt strap bolts while you're under there. Mine were loose, tightened up and eliminated the vibe... Just watchin your back while you're focused on that clutch! GL.

Got it fixed last night before I saw this, but you nailed it! Where were you earlier? haha. Rear drive-shaft bolts were loose.

No kiddin. Lol. Cool. You were focused and I know it can be annoying some suggestions that seem obvious. Didn't think of it til today anyway. Used blue thread locker on those bolts, right?
