Clutch Problems Need help ASAP!!!
Need help right away. Just installed a new clutch package(pressure plate, clutch disc, hydrolic throw bearing/slave cylinder) put everything back together, bleed the clutch, pedal feels nice and firm, when the engine is off, it will shift through all the gears(including reverse) but 5th gear. but when i start it up and try and put it through the gears it won't shift into any of them. this is exactly what the YJ was doing right before i did the clutch job.
before i did the clutch i replaced the master cylinder with one from the jeep auto wreckers, after installing it the jeep was shifting fine, but shortly after (about 15 km down the road) it went back to not shifting anymore. came home, bleed the clutch again. still didn't work. that's when i decided i had to replace the clutch.
could it be something with the shifter linkage.
could it be the master cylinder i got from the wreckers is no good?
also haines manual said to torque the pressure plate down to 40 ft/lbs is this right?
any suggestions please?????
