    Just swapped one close ratio 5 spd for another almost identical close ratio 5spd and as I'm bolting everything back up I notice the angle on the slave plunger is way off and I had to pull the clutch fork back halfway just to get the slave to bolt up. This all worked perfectly on the other transmission and the only difference
    between the two trannys is the one that is out of the car has the tall ears on the shifter,

    Did you use the same pressure plate and throwout bearing collar that were used with the other tranny?

    Also, it is way too clean under there and that may be part of your problem.

    There must be a difference between the two bell housings where the s-cyl. attaches. Two possible suggestions swap bell housings, if there is a difference between them or a block spacer under the cyl.

    Looks like your clutch fork is not properly seated on the pivot ball to me.

    I second the fork seating possibility. The angle of the rod is wrong, it should be close to a straight shot to the seat in the fork. Looks like the fork is sticking out of the transmission too far. That means the fork ends (tines?) are not riding on the throwout collar correctly. Grab the fork and wiggle it and see if the spring clips are holding it on to the pivot ball. If it's loose you might still be able to force it on without removing the transmission. Push it in to where it should be, where the angle is right (almost a right angle with the rod), and press the clutch pedal.

    Thanks all for your suggestions, The Big E and Zed nailed it.
    I must have banged the clutch fork as I muscled the transmission into place, all it took was a couple of firm taps with a mallet and the fork popped into place.
    The car is running great and the new tranny is perfect.
    Even though most of you reading this don't live up here, it is July 1st so,
    Happy Canada Day!
