i had a bad throwout bearing. i dropped the trans/engine/cradle and seperated the engine from the trans. i replaced the throwout bearing. i put the engine and trans back together, but i find that there is 1/2 inch of free play in the clutch arm, and then the clutch arm seems to 'hit a wall' and wont move any further. shouldnt there be at least SOME movement after the bearing engages the pressure plate? how much pressure SHOULD it take to move the pressure plate by the clutch arm? should i be able to move it with hand pressure? i dont want to install the motor/trans/cradle in the car only to find out i have to do more clutch work! HELP

Unless you have a VERY strong arm you are not going to move the clutch lever by hand. Your install sounds normal.
