Yes the Slave is the same length. I just replaced it over the weekend hoping it might have been the issue. I did not replace the pilot bushing when we did the rebuild so that’s why I suspect it. I replaced the throw out 2 years ago when we did the work. I had a problem right before the Dayton meet and we pulled the engine out and found that the throw out had shifted. (either the clips weren’t put on or they fell off) I replaced the throw out with a new one and a new pressure plate at that time. Pressure plate looks like the one in the picture you sent me. I didn’t replace the clutch plate as it seemed ok and was replaced in 2013. I have a pilot and that’s going to be my next project.
