NVM--HELP (Kennedy EJ mounting issues)

Post by joelzy » Thu Aug 17, 2017 12:19 pm

Spent yesterday afternoon trying to get the motor in and i cannot for the life of me get it seated.
I pushed, pulled, wiggled and shimmied but no luck so far.

I put the long stud in the wrong hole thinking i could cinch it up from there but the opposite corner still wouldn't come together.

To confirm, I bought a 200mm Kennedy kit and am using a 200mm clutch going in a '69 type 1
The pressure plate is used so there is no collar on it but there is the small sleeve on the throwout bearing that could be holding me up.
Am i just misaligned? anyone have this happen?

Any help would be very appreciated, engine hoist needs to go back to my friend this weekend so I need to get her on there.
thanks

Disregard,
The friction disk was somehow misaligned enough to not slide onto the trans input shaft. got it bolted up and mods can delete this
