After three days of swapping a 5 speed LSD tranny into the 99 G20 from and auto tranny, Ive run into a bit of a problem. Everything is back together (finally) and here is whats happening, the car is on jack stands at this point with the front wheels off.

The car starts and it feels like the clutch is not fully engaging. When in neutral, the rotors do not spin. I can put it into first, but even with the clutch pedal pushed in all the way, the rotors begin to spin, hence the clutch is engaging. I cannot put it into any other gears without feeling like its grinding into place.

Two things come to mind.

1) When putting the tranny in, there was not a distinct *stab* of the tranny into the clutch. It went in, but not like I have normally felt with other trannys Ive done. Could a miss alingment cause this problem?

2) This is a hydraulic clutch, I believe that I have gotten all of the air out of the system but it still feels soft to me, keep in mind this is the first hydraulic clutch that I have ever had experinece with. There seems to be no adjustment for the slave cylinder in terms of adjusting the throw.

Here are the key things down there...Lightened stock flywheel, JWT clutch and PP, new TO bearing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'd keep bleeding that clutch...you have someone helping you right? Make sure you use a bleeder bottle so air can't suck back in before you close it off.
