Justin, the transfer case front output nose cone gasket/seal could be a culprit. Pretty easy to check and make sure the bearing is in good shape too.

Our local CarQuest was very good about flywheel turning - did my first one for free so that I'd tell all my friends, and did an excellent job.

Clutch.
Pressure plate
Pilot bearing.
Throw out bearing.

Rear main seal.
Tranny fluid
Oil pan gasket if necessary.

The tranny front seal is not needed unless it is leaking (Hardlly ever leak)
Oil pan is just easier with tranny down. And might have to loosen to get rear main.

Richardo and I were able to get the transmission out and back in with the new clutch. It took longer than we expected, it usually does, because we had to take the transmission hump off as well as the seats.

The only thing that is a little concerning, is that the throwout bearing does not always spin freely when the cluth is not engage. It will spin with the clutch plate and flywheel. Sometimes it will pull back far enough so that it does not spin.

I have tried to adjust the clutch slave to but with no luck.

Does anyone know how serious this might be. It does not really make any noticable noise right now.

Thanks

Make sure the ball on the clutch fork arm that holds the throwout bearing is all the way in the socket. There is a little two-armed retaining spring that it must push past to seat all the way. If it isn't all the way in there, the throwout bearing will do some funny stuff. Ask me how I know.

Thanks, I will double check.

I think the issue is with the fork and or ball being worn. The clearance setting between the throughout bearing and pressure plate fingers is very small; .06" inch according to the instructions in the link below. With a clearance that tight, any slop/play in the fork would account for the trouble we were having getting it set.

This link should bring up the installation manual for the Advance Adapters Chevy V8 the Land Cruiser FJ40, H42 4spd Tranny Adapter Bellhousing Kit you have. The instructions do have a specific part number for the pressure plate but I don't know if it cross references to what we used.
