Transmission

Vehicle Information: Model (914/4, 914/6): 914/6; Year: 1974; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.7 Liter with Elgin Cams and Webers; Total Mileage: 15000;

Hello Ed,I have a 1974 converted 914 six with a 914 transaxle. It was converted to the Pull Type Clutch with a 225mm clutch, and the 911 flywheel 15k miles ago. The set up seems somewhat unique in that the clutch cable pulls directly (through one guide mounted onto the motor) on the throwout fork. The throwout fork seems to have been modified and the throwout bearing housing has just two small rectangular ears (180 degrees to each other) which engage with the end of the throwout fork as simple friction surfaces. A few weeks ago, the clutch cable snapped and the throwout arm just disengaged from the throwout bearing. The transmission was very easy to remove since they were already disengaged. I removed it because the throwout fork seems a little wobbly. I am not that familiar with how to put it back together again, can you advise on:1. Assuming the throwout fork is straight, how should it feel (wobble) on the pivot? The throwout fork is attached to the bellhousing pivot with one bolt.2. How to engage the throwout fork with capture blade to the throwout bearing when attaching the transmission. 3. I assume adjustment will be similar to what Up Fixin' Der Porsche (I have Volumes 1-8)explain for the pull type clutches of the 70/71 911. Thank you,Dan
