Re: 1990 Chevy half ton clutch problems
Are you starting the truck engine with the trans in neutral, then can't get it into gear because it grinds? If so, put the truck in gear, then start the engine. Be sure the parking brake is set, chock the wheels, or have the rear jacked off the ground. PLEASE make sure that there isn't any way the truck will run off and hit something! I have had this experience on a couple clutches I installed. The clearances are close, and just need the clutch to wear ever so slightly. If this isn't the problem, then either: 1:You surfaced the flywheel and need a spacer between the crank and the flywheel, or 2:The slave cyl., clutch fork is out of place, and not giving you full throw. or 3: The clutch cyl need bleeding. An indication of this would be a "soft" pedal, very little pedal "feel" from the floor, or pump the pedal (similar to a brake) and you get more clutch pedal.
