After a month of pushing in real hard on this 488 ft/lb RPS clutch something blew on it today. I was letting the clutch out and heard a loud 'bang' then a couple of clinks and my clutch pedal is stuck to the floor. '

I started it in first gear and idled home. I sure hope I haven't hurt this new clutch.

I havn't looked yet but I assume the clutch fork snapped in two. Anyone else have this problem? Has anyone had to re-inforce their stock fork?

Thanks

hey it could be your slave cylinder seeing that it is one of the weakest parts of the clutch you could of blown the seal out of the piston in the slave cylinder. check it out and tell me what you find.

The slave and master and S.S. flex line ,pilot and throw bearing and RPS are all brand new. 1 month old. The fork is the original.

I just jacked the car up and had a look. Unbelievable!! THe pivot point is a ball.
That ball has popped through the fork. The clinking sound i heard was a quarter size piece of metal that came from the fork where the pivot point popped through.
I will order a new one from toyota tomorrow unless someone knows where to get a high performance fork. I guess I will have to reinforce the new one so this doesn't happen again.

if you going to reinforce the new on then why not just fix the old one same difference.
Because the new one is less than $30 and the old one has 500k miles on it. The original old one may have broke just from metal fatigue let alone all the wear where the throw bearing contacts the end of the fork and at the pivot point and at the slave contact point.

Oh jeez .. I hope I dont brake another one.. a couple of those tranny to engine bolts and the upper starter bolt are a biatch to get at.
Anyway, its back together (took me 5 hours of hard work Tuesday night) with a brand new fork. Lets hope it lasts.
Do you have any pics or directions on how to beef that thing up.

( I cant imagine this clutch being stiffer to push, my left leg is already looking like the Incredible HULK )

No, but I bought the clips ($1.20 each) and the boot
$10.00 maybe.. Total was very close to $40 us.
