I have never seen a shifter fork break like this, nor has anyone else I've shown this to. I don't know how I managed this :lol:. Here's the whole prob with it not shifting. I had the parts overnighted so they'll be here tom and I can get it back on the road :TU:. You can see where it split

A really heavy pressure plate would do it.

where's the grease?

No grease = wear point at the pivot point.........

do shift forks tend to break easier with a stiffer pressure plate and a higher hp engine setup, or is it mainly the pressure plate?

What tells you that? I would just guess a heavy pressure plate would do it over time.

last time i put my trans back on the car, i put more lube on that point than what is used in a vivid video.

also I have a spare fork if you need, I would be happy to send it out for you.

that's kind of what I was thinking. I didn't put the trans in, so I don't know, I do know that the person I use to have help me work on the car isn't going to touch it again. The bad thing is, he's a Honda technician :sadface:. I'm definitely going to lube the shit out of it before the new one goes on. I got a new fork, new pivot ball, and spring to go in.

sorry but i had to laugh... were they overnighted frm japan??
yes :lol:. You've seen the F&F too many times Jimmy :lol:

Sorry Jay ....I'm going with Bone on this one pivot point looks alittle dry , I have a fork... if you cant find or dont have good one
it's cool thanks for the offer though Cliff :TU:, I got a friend at the local dealership that lets me get cost on everything because I'm in there all the time lol.

That's what I'm planning to do :TU:. I'm going to get some new axles since it's apart and pick up some grease to make sure this doesn't happen again. Thanks for the offer on the fork, I went ahead picked one up at the dealership.

Damn i send in a fork as well i dont use those since im stickin to Cable on my EF!!!
Thanks Milo :TU:

it doesn't take much grease, hi-temp wheel bearing.......

too much and it will end up on the clutch disc......

grease/oil and clutches don't get along very well.

that's what I used, I didn't put too much on. I covered the pivot point in the tranny, the seat on the fork, the fork prongs where the throw out bearing sits, the indention where the slave cylinder meets up, and a little on the bearing itself .

Sorry to hear about the fork break'n... According to your last post the re-install went alright. Running fine now? Think my tranny is acting up since one of my trips home one night too. Hope my fork isn't going? LOL
