refer back to my "LUK" flywheel/clutch

Transmission and Clutch

First, thank you very much for you quick response!I'm really suprise by the performance of your TECH Section dept. two thumbs up for you!Back to the problem. I remembered the LUK dual mass flywheel bolts (9 pcs) were longer(approx. 35-40mm) than old single mass(approx. 20-25mm).I didn't actually measure them but I was looking at it.So, now my whole Dual Mass flywheel/Clutch unit is thicker. And the release Bearing(fingers) is shorter in order to maintain the same total distance from the back of the flywheel to the bearing finger tip. That's the whole ideal.1) And is that TRUE that there is two different type of Clutch Fork then? but since the total thickness is mantain the same, why do I still need a different FORK?2) If there is only one type of Fork(assuming in good shape) for the both flywheel applications.The last thing I would suspect is the Guide Tube.It didn't come with the Clutch Kit. I just used the old one which seems to fit in perfectly. I'm guessing there is different markings on the tube to allow a certain amount of travel.(for example, less travel marking for the thinner flywheel set, and a deeper travel marking for the LUK thicker flywheel set. If that's the case than I can isolate my problem. It's either the Clutch Fork( different style) or the Guide tube (different travel marking) to prevent the Clutch to be able to fully release.(I already had New Master and Slave cylinders put in and I did bled my clutch properly with the 3 guys, pump/release/top-up method) Please advise, THANKS!!!!!!!Wilson
