This displeases me. The other theory that might make sense is that the flywheel maybe has a small amount of runout and i should have checked it?

Is it possible to install a TOB backwards?

Local buddy says he's seen a bunch of Mazdas in general with bent forks, but i hadn't heard of that before. Any way to check without dropping trans again?

Did you not resurface it? Even then i don't think so, it would shutter and squawk, but it would still release properly i would think.

I did not. There was extremely minimal hotspotting and was in generally very clean condition with no glazing. Brake cleaner and a quick pass by hand with a scotchbrite pad.

I forgot to drop it at the machine shop and took a gamble, figuring i could live with some shuddering and noise if i had to for a couple months before tearing the car down this winter again. THIS wasn't something i would have expected though.

Can't the clutch disc go on backwards? I seem to remember someone doing that once.

It can.

It's not LIKELY that i did such a thing, having done a clutch or dozen before and never made this mistake, largely due to the large stickers clutch manufacturers put on them that say "THIS SIDE TOWARDS FLYWHEEL," but it's a possibility. I did not double check this, as it's been something that i haven't had an issue with.

But hey, if that's the case, i'll definitely let you guys know i did that and you can all point and laugh at my expensive and time consuming mistake. Looks like i'm dumping another $40 of trans fluid on Friday.

why not just drain it into a clean bottle and reuse?

or get/make a tailshaft plug and no need to loose any trans fluid. I could send you mine to borrow if time wasnt an issue, offer stands either way.

I have a shitload of spare fluid that i bought for the Jeep that i never got to use because it got totaled. Not the biggest deal in the world. And i'm a weakling so the idea of chest pressing this transmission with even a pound more weight in it from fluid sounds awful.

I don't even lift bro.

Trying to lose more weight so my n/a Miata is faster. I think 135-140lbs should be nice.

I still eat ice cream 3-4x a week. But i'm down over 20lbs this year already. I don't have time to nourish and maintain a big buff bear body.

We might actually have a lift available for a hundo or so of my dollhairs. If so, we're talking a 2 hour job, plus whatever it takes to get the flywheel resurfaced. I don't want to spend money, but i also don't feel like doing this job on my back in my driveway and wouldn't want to subject you to that. If we can knock this out quick, then we have better chance of knocking out rollbar.

A step forward towards closure: The clutch disc is defective because my luck is super awesome.

All four pads thicker than spec. 3 of them slightly, 1 of them big time.

ACT sending me a new disc, but might not be here until Tuesday, which is not so awesome, considering i leave Wednesday morning.

I would want a new PP too, seeing how its been partially broken in on uneven frictions.

At least it wasnt your fault and youve found the issue.
