you didn't put a clutch in did you?? if so you used an alignment tool right?? if not the case then hold up on the clutch fork and make sure the TB slides on to the retainer while pushing in......also to aid in slide in I lube up the pilot tip and bearing retainer with some anti-sieze..usually slides right in

You sir need to step away from the tools. That is not the right way to do it. If everything is lined up correctly it will slide right in no problem. Forcing it in with the bolts couldcause damage tothe pilot bearing, clutch disc, tb, input shaft, and front bearing retainer.


Double check the alignment of the disc to pilot bearing. If the tool slides in and engages to pilot bearing with ease you need to have someone sit in the car and lightly work the clutch pedal until it slides in flush to the bellhousing.
