As far as the clutch disc goes, I've got a 258 and it could only bolt onto and properly seat on the pressure plate one way.

Shot in the dark here.

A few years ago there were some bad blocking rings(the brass/bronze syncro rings) going around. They were almost the correct size. Off enough to screw everything up and IIRC produced the same symptoms you are having.

If you search a bit on the forum the thread should come up.

You guys are correct. The clutch plate only goes one way. But, the dang pilot bearing fell out of the bellhousing. After driving it in the crank, the clutch alignment tool went in it. But the trans shaft does not. Interesting. With closer examination of the alignment tool that came with my Luk clutch, it says.... Toyota. Interesting. There are scars all around the outside of it where it has been spinning. Strange thing is the tranny bolted right up no problem. I hope this is it.

I would start with that. check all shafts to make sure they are ok. if it was me i would take it back and make them give you the right one for free along with anything that got messed up.

Well, I'm still waiting on parts. But since I've had such an issue I put the tranny and tc together again. And guess what, it is binding a little bit. I put a little oil in it to help lube and it barely helped. So being as ticked off as I was, I put double gaskets between the tranny and adapter. Guess what, it turns like a champ. She's gonna roll just like this. The pile of beer cans is building on an old four wheeler to the point that you can barely make out what it is. It has been dubbed the Beer Wheeler. I've got empty beer boxes coming out of my ears and I think I've gained 5 pounds, bashed a hole in my thumb nail, bled, cussed, pulled the tranny and tc 3 times, and cussed some more. She's gonna roll or destruct trying. If she destructs, it will be for sale. Lol. I've owned 5 jeeps from a CJ-3B, a 61 willies, a 73, a 75, and now a 84. I have never had issues like this. I think the gaskets will give me that thousandths tolerance that I need to keep it from binding.

Got a chance to put her back together. I double gasketed it. She runs and shifts like a dream. She shall stay this way. I appreciate everyone's assistance during my mental breakdown. Now on to the left rear which I just noticed is leaking grease. It never ends...

The thick double gaskets seem to be doing the trick. Can anyone think of any issues this could cause doen the road? Any?
