The only thing I haven't swapped is the FW, and, I'm wondering if the resurface took it just out of usable spec. Or...
The machinist also knows me as "the SVT focus guy" (guess I'm the only one that comes there) and I wonder if his guys ground it to specs for an SVT.

We did have a similar issue at first on the twin disc clutches we used to drag race, we had to throw out all ideas of what the working distances were there to come up with new for that specific setup. It changed from car to car too.

You have to put the working space of the PP in the same place as the working space of the TOB. We also found that if you stroked the PP slightly too deep then the clutch began to lock again, the amount of TOB movement there was pretty critical. A lot of measuring to get it right, we set up the PP release numbers on a drillpress to be able to tell exactly when the discs released.
