They looked ok (were not cross threaded stripped) and went back in but Jeff did have to work at it. IIRC, the tolerances are tight and the key is to work all 8 bolts evenly. I would think that opening up the holes on the plates just slightly would resolve the issue. The other thing to keep in mind is to note which side is driver (or passenger) as we initially had it opposite. Once we swapped sides it slid right in (from the rear) and fit snug.

Nice work you guys! Awesome that Randy has it goin' on down there... we are fortunate to have such a generous fellow in the club.

Not sure how I missed the thread.

The verdict is still out on the clutch. I am waiting to get a phone call today from the shop. I told them about my slave cylinder, lack of return spring and the modification I did to have a return spring. I am not sure if the spring is too heavy and puts too much of a pressure on the slave cylinder. Or the possibility my slave cylinder is bad.

I think the trick to the cross member is to start all the bolts and then snug it down once all the bolts are threaded.

Gotta thank the guys again for all the help and also Justin at redline. I'll be making a trip down there to give him a bunch of free parts.

That's good practice for most multi-fastener assemblies

Headers on and it's badass. Quiet and no more chocking. The slave cylinder is a different story. I knew my 2f was out of a fj60 and now pretty sure it's a 1986 2f. I have this screwy clutch fork that doesn't have a return spring. When I ordered a slave cylinder I just ordered one for a fj40 4 speed. So long story short the push rod wasn't long enough (story of my life) . The guys at comprehensive auto overcame this and now everything is working fine. That place is a great shop, and prices weren't too bad.

So you're fully operational and back to trouble free DD status?
