On the way to work it started to get difficult to shift into 1st and 2nd. I stopped to check it out and noticed a horrible grinding/growling sound when the clutch was let out a few inches from the floor. Goes away when you push it all the way down. Replaced the slave cylinder as it was leaking, and know change. Pulled the tranny and replaced the throwout bearing which looked pretty bad. Still no change. While i had it up jacks the wheels will spin quit fast in neutral with the clutch out. the fingers on the pressure plate look good. I know i should have bought a clutch kit and replaced it all but money is a little tight. Any thought boys?
