E50 clutch issue

Trevor Fladwood /

Working on an e50 clutch and having a strange issue. I was trying to adjust the spring tension to avoid grabbing too early, and I noticed when I move the clutch by hand, the bell is moving as well, just a bit when I move the clutch forward but continuously when I move the clutch backwards. (I guess I’ll remember not to ride backwards). The bushing seems fine and the bell moves well on the crankshaft. I tried a couple of clutches and got the same result. Could this be a shimming problem? Anything else I check?

Thanks!

Any chance you have a dmp crank ? Mine needed me to reduce he rear shim 1mm. But don’t forget you need to add it to the inside bell shim to retain correct pressure plate to clutch distance.

It’s the treats super stuffy. I will check the shims though.

If there is a bushing issue, if you wanna save a dollar , take the original bushing n re stamp one end 1mm to 1.35mm , repress it on the crank and you'd be surprised how much that will firm up the cluch bellhousing.
