Clutch fork type 1997 Caldina GT-T

Im unsure which type it runs from factory, but you can run the cast fork on a pressed fork box but not a pressed fork on a cast fork box. so in other words cast fork will do both boxes, with the exception of running the correct throwout bearing to match the fork. If yours is originally a pressed fork box you will just have to space your slave cylinder out slightly.Most guys swap in the cast fork due to its strength and due to the fact that it is longer ,which gives you a slightly lighter pedal in car

got a few cast forks here if your in need of one....

this applies only to turbo caldina E code gearboxes not non turbo gearboxes

Ok so until its apart there's really no way to tell... Maybe i should just get a cast fork from you, and then order a clutch kit that's the cast fork specific one and go from there.

Daniboy how can I get a cast fork from you, how much ect. Are you in Brisbane and do you want to help change a clutch I have no experience but want to give it a go, knowing its a crap job. Have been quoted $1500 for a clutch place to do it and installing a organic kit.

Cheers Mike

ahh yea you can see if the fork is cast or pressed steel easily at the bit that hangs out to the slave cylinder. ok to explain it in the easiest terms.... look at the bit where the rod from the slave cylinder goes into the fork, if you can see a bulge out the back of the fork where it locates into its a pressed steel one, if its flat and cast looking its a cast fork.... if in doubt take a photo of where you fork meets the slave cylinder and i can identify it for you.

as for doing the clutch, decent job at home for an unexperienced person.... have a google of diy caldina clutch replacement and see if it looks like something you wanna do :P

My guess is that its cast? No bulge in the fork as you described on opposite side of fork to the slave, its flat. And it does have a cast look to it. Spent the last hour trying to upload the photo i took but it keeps screwing up..
