New quadrant install

Having issues installing the new clutch quadrant...they say use a large screw driver or prybar to pry the quadrant far enough over the two shafts to install the two cotter clips....yeah easier said then done!!

I remember doing that, it took 2 hours installing the quadrant and a couple bloody knuckles. But like Trojan suggested, use graphite lube.

That doesn't sound like a bad deal. Sucks that the camaro isn't running, what year is it?
