Measured all my stuff yesterday with the slave installed on the transmission, clutch/PP installed to the flywheel and everything torqued to spec. I'm seeing about 2 11/16" from the bellhousing face to the TOB face, and about 3 1/8" from the block plate to the PP fingers. So, a difference of 7/16". So I'm guessing I need a shim but what I'm not clear on is how much of a shim. I've seen that you're supposed to have around 1", but I've also seen where people said the actual travel is only 1/2"...so I'm not totally clear. Now granted I didn't measure the stock stuff before I took it out but this is an OE replacement clutch kit so everything should be similar and it had no shims. I will say that on the stock clutch you had to push it all the way to the floor to make sure it was completely disengaged. Never really had any problems shifting though. Would a a single 3/16" shim be enough?
