Clutch Fork Problem

I just got done replacing the clutch on my friend's '91 Legend. We got the transmission back into the car with all the mounts in and all of the mounting bolts in but are running into a problem with the clutch fork. The fork is stuck down under the pivoting/mounting bracket and no matter what way I angle or pull or squeeze, I can't get it back up so that I can get it into the bracket. Am I doing something wrong here? Is there a good way of getting it up around the bracket without removing the whole transmission again? Thank you ahead of time.

I have been using the Helms manual throughout the process. I have actually already installed the new clutch and pressure plate and gotten the transmission back in the car. I am having problems with getting the clutch fork onto the pivoting point because it is stuck below the bracket. Unfortunately, all the manual says about the clutch fork is "Install the release fork". I guess I was hoping that someone else has run into the same issue I am having and found a way around it other than removing the transmission and trying again.

wish I could help more but my knowledge is limited when it comes to manual transmissions and as you said it doesn't cover your issue. I'm sure Mike D or somebody else will chime in with more experience with manual transmissions.

I ended up just unbolting the mounts and backing out the housing bolts about half an inch which allowed me to separate the transmission and pressure plate enough to get the fork up to the pivoting point.
