Grinding gears with new clutch installed
 
I just replaced my clutch and my gears are still grinding when i shift, anyone know why? Also i have a sqeeking noise that sounds like it's coming form under the jeep. I thought it was the throwout berring but it still does it. The noise only happens when I'm giving it gas. I've checked the belt and it's tight. One of my driveshaft joints is showing wear could it be that? Thanls for reading hopefully someone can help.

Did you replace the pilot bearing in the end of the crank shaft also?
If it is still grinding after the clutch; it could be a bad slave cylinder not pushing the fork all the way in to release the clutch or could be bad synchro's in the transmission. Mine did the same thing and it was a slave cylinder issue. :crash:

What about a pressure test on the clutch master cylinder? If its synchro issue, I would suggest ax-15 or something else. Advance adapters will allow you to swap to about anything. My opinion. Only reason I say that, by the time you spend $200 on a synchro kit and all the gaskets, time and fustration , you can get a good used replacement for about the same money or a little more $$$$. I would rule out all the obvious before pulling it again.

Is the ax 15 compatible with my 4 cylinder engine

Nope, but Novak and Advance Adapter can help you out. Here is a link for some reading about this conversion from Novak.
