Hey everyone i just got my new act2600 clutch put in my 90GST yesterday. it was doing fine for about 2hours then all the sudden it got harder to shift into gear and reverse would grind horribly bad. so i parked the car. today i go and start the car and when i turn the key i hear a quick grind noise from the tranny? then it stops and when i took it for a test drive i had to force it into first gear then when i let the clutch out alittle bit it would shake? so i held the clutch to the floor and stepped on the gas and my car started going with the clutch to the floor it was like it wasent even pushed in? any replys would be greatly appreciated thanks in advance :cry: :cry: :cry:
 
Check the fluid in the clutch resevior. It's possible that the heavier clutch is pushing fluid past the seals in the master and/or slave cylinder. Check them for any signs of wetness under the rubber boots. Also check the stock rubber clutch line on the tranny for bulges or cracking.
 
I just thought of something else. Check the bolts that mount the tranny to the block. If they're loose that would account for the starter grinding, too.

I've seen this happen, the trans seperates from the block when the clutch is depressed.
 
good advise....adjust your pedal, this needs to be done usually when changing clutches. Also the tranny bolt post was a good one too, i forgot about that one. Check your slave and master cylinders for leakage. The slave is easy, just pull the boot back and if fluid comes out then its dead...
