How does the clutch pedal feel after the bleeding procedure?
Are you having trouble selecting gear with the engine running?
Ok, I have had clutches "stick" after assembly, which sounds like your scenario.
I have done this:
Get vehicle to safe place to allow cranking the engine, in gear, clutch pedal depressed.
The vehicle will move forward while cranking, as soon as the engine fires, the clutch plate "unsticks" and begins to function normally.
Have you tried this?
I would think about 3/4 -1 inch, 19 - 25mm.
Of course, if there is mismatch of parts, throwout bearing height, flywheel, pressure finger heights, then the procedure above may not work.
Are all your parts correct for the application?
That's good to hear.
I'll wait until you try my procedure.
If the engine fires, and you have a normal clutch, then hopefully all good.
If the engine fires, and still no clutch release, then either key off to shut the engine down or stall it.
Hope it works for you.
I have had it before a few times, and you start to panic etc.
Your heart is in your mouth, and then relief when it works.
Fingers crossed for you.
How did you go, do you need any further help?
I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.
I had a friend of mine do that on his own car a few years back.
He couldn't work it out, so I helped him.
Eventually I asked is the clutch plate in backwards, sure enough it was.
I didn't think to ask you that, since I have only seen it once, but I guess we all learn.
Hope it is all working ok now.
