My T18 swap started this weekend. Have the correct pre-70 bell on there and the throwout bearing is jammed up against the new clutch pressure plate fingers. I know the end of the throwout arm needs to be 5-6 degrees forward for mechanical advantage but the way it is now the arm is all the way forward in the hole. I would like to move the throwout bearing back. I am reusing the arm that was on the Jeep when I took it apart this weekend (it was finger clutch that came out and not a borg-beck). The ball stud is what came on the bell. The throwout for now is just the old one that came out too. So my thoughts are to keep the arm I have and instead use a thinner throwout bearing or get an adjustable ball stud. What would you do? Or would you do both? I see there is a lakewood adjustable ball and some threads mention using the OEM buick car throwout. I'm not opposed to using both the new ball and bearing...or if there is a preferred arm to use...but my search did not bring up any arm part numbers. For the ball stud I have Lakewood 15501 and for the Buick car bearing I show National 614018. Should I just grab those to begin?
