Does your trans have the external slave cylinder? If so, how did you get the trans to bolt up to the engine without the slave cylinder hitting the oil pan?

What oil pan did you use? I tried with a truck pan and an F-body pan, and neither one works. It hits on the bottom of the pan on the F-body and hits the little tab below the level sensor. You got any pics? Is your trans an original '91 Silverado trans?

What exactly did you do to the throwout bearing? Was it screeching or ticking?
