dreamzx93 I wonder if an air bubble in the hydraulic system would cause this?

dreamzx93 The fork and bearing assembly move freely until it contacts pressure plate diaphragm then it stops. I took the slave cyl off and moved the bearing/fork back and forth with my hand through the sc hole.

The bearing was put on the fork using the clips on the bearing. They rest in the indentions on the fork. The other side of the fork is attached to the fixed point using that clip.

Jerry Bransford If the clutch pedal works normally after the slave cylinder is unbolted from the bell housing, I'd have to guess either the clutch fork or throwout bearing wasn't installed properly.

Too much clutch pedal pressure

I just put a new clutch in my jeep. I've done several in my z and my buddy's cars. So I at least have some experience. Anyway I put flywheel on 105lbs to the crank. Then alignment tool and clutch plate and bolted pressure plate over that at 45lbs I believe it was. Then took alignment tool out and bolt trans, tc, and drive shafts up. Then I put slave cylinder in and went to check pedal pressure bc I did not drain or open hydraulic system when disassembled. I just unbolted from housing and set aside.

Anyway now I have this extremely stiff pedal pressure it will not even budge. I don't want to put anymore pressure on it bc I don't want to blow the slave cylinder. What's going on here I'm stumped? The pedal will not move towards the floor at all.
