It's been a week now since the 5spd conversion and all is still good :)
Just a couple of things though. Firstly, when I did the conversion I put a near new (less than a week old) Daiken clutch in, but the cable has to be screwed right out to it's limits to stop the clutch slipping. Even if I leave my foot sitting lightly on the clutch and step on the go pedal a bit it can slip. It's also really annoying having the clutch pedal sitting about an inch higher than the brake pedal. I just can seem to figure out why. The clutch and the cable are pretty much brand new!
Secondly, that clunk I posted about earlier is deffinately the diff. I took the tailshaft out yesterday to change the extension housing seal in the box as it was a bit leaky. While it was out I could rotate the diff flange about 5-6mm. It makes no other noises except the clunk when changing gears and stuff. Is this normal?? My EA 3.23 LSD was a lot older and copped more of a floggin than this one has, it never clunked but it did have a bit of a whine. Is this because it's a single spinner or something?
