need help

hey guys i need your help, i recently put a ax15 trans in my jeep and couldn't get the clutch to bleed. checked the master cylinder and it was leaking so i replaced it. i have no idea how long the clutch as been in there but it worked fine before. it will shift thru all gears fine but reverse it grinds like crazy. think it might be the clutch? any ideas and help would be appreciated!!

My reverse acted up and I drained the fluid and had a tooth come out. So my reverse was missing a tooth.....I don't think it was a grind I had it was more of a clunk that got louder as I accelerated. And my tranny is the crappy ba10

I just read that the clutch bleeder screw is on the external slave cylinder. I'm gonna bleed mine in the next few days. The slave is the black plastic piece bolted onto the bell housing of the transmission. Look here for bleeding details:

As for the grinding, the reverse gear in the AX15 is not synchronized. This means that it is gonna grind. Mine grinds, yours grinds, all the others grind too. It's easy to eliminate this problem. Try shifting into 2nd and then 4th before you shift into reverse. So just go 2-4-Reverse. It usually does the trick.
