Ok I installed the kit and I was told it would mount up to a CJ v8 to t18 bell housing without mods or fabrication....... I worried about this angle on the clutch fork...... Clutch does make a noticeable metallic click when I engage it t the end of the stroke........ Anybody got some advice?

That angle looks pretty steep. I'd be worried about premature wear on the slave cylinder bore.. among other things.

I think if I were going to keep those parts, I'd probably relocate the slave cylinder downward a bit.. or cutoff the end of the clutch fork and reweld/gusset it higher.
