I just put a new six spring clutch in my 85 GT, so after I lowered it off the jack stands and was just getting excited, I stepped on the clutch and there was next to no pedal resistance. We never diconnected the hydralics, but my Dad and I bled the system anyway. This I thought was the answer since, after we did it, there was significantly more pedal, and we could see the slave pushing the clutch release lever. But no luck, I stepped on the clutch, started it up, went to put it in gear, and GGRRIINNDD. I'm at a loss here...we replaced the clutch assembly and throw-out bearing and were extemely careful to get it right, and I know we did...since everything sounds fine down there. The slave just doesn't seem to be putting on enough pressure to release the clutch. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

first impression is that the clutch fork may have become unseated.

If that were the case...wouldn't it be making a bunch of racket when I step on the clutch? Cuz when I just step on the clutch it's fine...only when I try to put it in gear does it make racket.

Measure the amount of movement you get from the slave - Archie's web site gives you the minimum amount of you need to work your clutch. If you have enough throw then your problem lies elsewhere.

If you push the clutch arm by hand, how far do you have to push it until the TO touches the PP fingers. Sounds like the distances are not right...

You didnt happen to put the disk in backwards did you? Lol I did that once, I dropped the disk ask I was putting the pressure plate on, and must have put it back on backwards. There was little resistance to the pedal, and the clutch would not disengage. IIRC, the springs were allready depressed all the way when they pressure plate was tightened.
