Hi, I was reading the posts regarding installing a supra gearbox in a LX and have also been talking with Toranamuk. One thing still couldn't find on the posts was what modification you need to do to the clutch fork opening, I believe it needs squaring up. I will be going full cable using a UC cable and the mod to the UC pedal. I have a CRS bell housing. If there is an existing post regarding this can someone put up a link please. When going back over the posts from you guys some photos will no longer show, is it possible for one of the Admin to repost the photos or make this a stickey as I am sure people are still needing this info. Cheers

You need to mock it up.
Fit clutch to engine.
Fit bellhousing , fork and throw out bearing.
Adjust pivot ball height so fork is as per image.

You should have an idea at this point if the clearance for the fork in the bellhousing opening is enough.
If not you can bend the fork and/or widen the opening to suit.

Thanks Rexy, after talking again with Toranamuk maybe the next question should be what thrust bearing carrier have you used and what to avoid. Some have mentioned V6, just wondering what the people have used recently without any hassles or minimal. Cheers

Hi Dattoman, after a bit more checking  I have decided to go CRS bronze clutch fork and they supplied a thrust bearing and as Rexy states will mock up to get it right. Cheers

Don't fret if it's not correct first up.
In addition to bending the fork and adjusting the pivot ball height you can get different height thrust bearings.

Or different style clutch plates.

I used the raised finger pressure plate to correct the clutch fork angle when I put the new drivetrain in the yellow LJ.

Was.
