Here are a few of photos of when I installed the clutch in my '68 jeep project. The new clutch came in a box along with the parts to the rest of the jeep. Bronze clutch thrust bearing: Resurfaced flywheel installed: Clutch kit I used: Clutch disc installed. Is it backwards? Pressure plate: Throwout bearing and clutch arm: Now that the rest of the jeep is put together, I'm ready to take it on a test drive. I installed a hydraulic slave clutch lever. When I start the jeep and press in the clutch, I can't put it in gear. The gears just grind. If I adjust the preload on the clutch pedal to apply a lot of pressure on the clutch's master cylinder, stepping on the clutch pedal will move the clutch arm fully until it contacts the bell housing. Here's what the clutch slave and arm looks like when there's no foot pressure on the clutch pedal: Here's the slave/arm when the clutch pedal is fully depressed. The arm seems like is limited by any more movement by hitting the bell housing. If I chock the wheels of the jeep, shift to first gear, push in the clutch, then start the engine, the starter will try to roll the jeep forward, but the engine will start. There's a screeching coming from the clutch. Letting out the clutch will apply power to the rear wheels. Why won't my clutch fully release with the arm pegged to the max? Did I install the disc backwards?
