LT1 Clutch Disengagement Issues !!! Need Help!


I Have an issue that I cannot figure out and I知 guessing it痴 something stupid I知 overlooking but I知 stumped. I Swapped my built LT1 from a 94 auto car into a 96 Manual car. I Installed a Built T56 (Texas Speed Built It), new chromoly flywheel, New Clutch (Zoom HP700). I also installed the Tick Adjustable Master Cylinder. When everything is installed I cannot get the clutch to disengage fully.. The only thing I can visually see is the fork contacts the housing of the clutch. With the pedal adjusted to the max throw the clutch will still not fully disengage. After 3000 RPM it Redlines and clutch slips when driving. It will also slip if you dump the clutch when sitting. I have removed the transmission multiple times with no luck. I have bled the master cylinder multiple times to make sure it is bled correctly. I have replaced the clutch fork/pivot. I have removed the clutch assembly and checked for issues and reinstalled (Used ARP flywheel bolts). I have even tried shaving down the pivot 1/8 of an inch to give it more throw and still no luck. I have tried to include all the details I can but if more information is needed please let me know. Any information that could help me get this resolved would be greatly appreciated!

I would contact Tick and let them know what you are up against. The only advice I have to offer is to be 100% sure the system is bled, and that all of the moving parts are aligned properly.
