    Having some clutch issues on a 77' corona w50 trans...help!

    So I installed a brand new clutch/pressure plate/throwout and input shaft bearing(had the flywheel resurfaced) in my w50/20r equipped rt105. Drove the car about 6000 miles and all was well.

    I then decided to put an 86 22r in place of the smoking 20r.

    So I just bolted all of the 20r clutch/flywheel/trans parts to the 22r.Seemed to work fine,but I did notice all of the clutch adjusters had to be maxed out(master/slave)..and now the clutch grabs right at the top of the pedal travel,and is bothering me.

    Question is,are these parts compatable?do I need a different cluch arm?throwout bearing different widths?flywheel not thick enough?Flywheel machined wrong?

    Help! It is making me crazy

    Dude, the flywheel/clutch/bellhousing/fork/master-slave/pedal are the same as what you had before...only the ENGINE changed. Sounds like your clutch is kaput.

    I was just worried about 22r/20r differences....I'll pull her apart and check now.

    The distance from the bellhousing mating flange on the back of the block and the flywheel mating surface on the crank is the same. You used all your 20R parts, right?

    Yep...only thing that changed was the engine.Actually seems like when i start the car in the morning it is fine and as the day goes on it the clutch grabs taller and taller...Make sense?
