I finished my 5.3 4L60E swap a few months ago and decided that I just don't like having an auto in the Jeep. So I decided to swap in a NV3550.
I bought a new NV3550, external slave cylinder bell housing, All new OEM Jeep throw out bearing, throw out arm (lever), pivot and slave cylinder. I also got a 2004 4.8 Vortec flywheel and OEM replacement LUK clutch set. I purchased Novak's kit part # 375-3 http://www.novak-adapt.com/catalog/a...on/kit_375.htm
Along with their bronze pilot bushing.
Everything went together great. Everything seemed to line up well. After getting the slave bleed and the motor fired up I ran into my first problem. The throw out arm was hitting the pressure plate witht the pedal fully depressed.
Novak advised that I needed their adjustable throw out bearing. After following their instructions I determined that I needed a 2.71" throw bearing. Their bearing only adjust out to 2.30". So I adjusted it to 2.30" and threw it in there.
The results were that the throw out arm no longer hit the pressure plate but now I dont get full clutch dissengagment until the pedal is 2" off of the floor.
I am now at a loss as to what I should do now.
If anyone else that has a AX15/ NV3550 / NSG370 behind their Vortec motor could maybe post up how they did theirs or what part numbers they used?
Do I need the .400" spacer?
