Need help/information asap!!!

Ok yall I know I haven't posted in awhile but I am putting my mustang back together (89 gt hatchback 5.0). Well I just put the bell housing back on and put the tranny up but the arm that pushes the bearing against the pressure plate is really like loose, like it has a lot of play to it. When I disassembled the bell housing and removed the clutch cable from that arm the arm was really tight. As far as I know all the parts are on everything and I have no extras. Should I take it apart again to see if something came undone or will it tighten up after I start it and get it running or does that drive shaft have to be hooked up or something. I don't know what to do. All I know is I don't want to have to drop that tranny again because it was a pain putting it in in the first place. Oiy.

i attached a few pics so you can make sure it all looks right. i would pull the little cover on the trans and look inside.the end of the clutch fork should be on the pivot ball.

make sure your clutch is adjusted properly and on the quadrant

Alright. The clutch fork slides back and forth if you lay on the side and push towards and away from you. Also originally when I took the cable out the thing was so darn tight that I couldn't barely get it off because I couldn't move the fork easily and now it is easy to put on the fork. I wonder if the fork came off of the other side of the bell housing. Hmmm.

That's what I'm wondering so I'm going to pull it apart again and hopefully not all the way out although that may be the only way i can get to it. What yall think?

I'm not positive but I think you can tell by pulling the cover off that goes over the clutch cable.you may need a flashlight and possibly a little mirror.

You maybe able to move the fork a little bit when installed correctly but not a whole lot.especially in and out.its been a while since I have had mine out so I'm not sure , but its possible that you can take the cable off and try to get the fork back on its proper location without pulling the trans back out.

And another thing.its not likely but there maybe a small chance that the cable is stretched if it was overtight.

Found my problem. I don't know if this can be welded well since it is cast aluminum can it? Should I just get a different bell housing or what. Oh my day just had a turn for the worse.

Yes it can be welded, but cast aluminum is difficult to weld due to the porosity and it may not be strong enough after it's done.
