Holy shinto. That sounds like some pretty involved custom work. Are you able to explain (in laymen's terms if possible) why all this was necessary? I'm just trying to understand the whole situation and figure out if I might have the same problem. It sounds like the release fork is likely the issue? Apologies for my lack of experience here, but what does threading the pivot pin hole and putting in a set screw accomplish?

Is anyone familiar with a clutch/flywheel combo that will for sure work in ZF swapped e30?

Thanks for your reply....I'm hoping I can sort out the problem in my car without going to quite so much trouble
