ive been attempting on and off now for over a year to fix my 92 awd laser. it has worked for a little bit but now has gotten to not going into any gear at all.

i have done these things in order...

-bought used tranny, had a guy take it apart and make sure it was good.
-bought act 2600 lbs clutch
-new slave cyl.
-new master cyl.
-ss clutch line
-stepped flywheel to spec.
-fully adjusted the master cyl. rod.
-lenthened slave cyl rod.
-welded the pedal assy.

as a result of welding the pedal assy. the clutch is really easy to push down, and it doesnt come all the way back up, it sits about an inch lower than the brake pedal? the slave cyl does travel when pushing clutch down.

some one please help, im about to just piss on it and sell it

i would definetly bleed out the whole clutch system to see what happens then,also by any chance did your mechanic install a new oem throwout bearing with the 2600 cause the bearing that comes with the kit is no good for any dsm trans,i've heard that it will wear out the input shaft really quick!!!!

i did just bleed it after doing the pedal assy. and i used the TOB that came with the kit...

It could be a very worn pivot fork and ball inside the bellhousing. If you have no issues going through the gears with the car off, i would say something in the clutch assembly. If the fork is worn it will not be able to dissengage the clutch properly.

it goes thru gears smoothly with the car off, i sit there dreaming of it to work like that when its running. lol.

how would i check for this to see if it is my problem? Is the cure the "putting shims behind the pivot ball" cure? i guess this will be the fourth time ive taken the tranny out trying to fix this darn thing.

Had the same problem with alomost identical parts.Drove me nuts. Ended up the pedal assembly was the problem. Haad to take it out, reposition the end, and re-weld it . My friends car did the same thing at the same time, and the pedal assy work was the common denominator. My hair is finally coming back in now!!!

how do i find out if that is my problem? when we welded it we put it on a wooden horse so there was pressure on the clutch pushing it to the "top" position.

oh, that sux, thank you. one more thing about the problem, after welding the pedal assy. i was pushing down the clutch and something popped noise, i dont know exactly where it came from, but everything was fine on the pedal assy. i even took it out to see if it was the weld that had broke. and now the pedal pressure is very minimum, similar to a stock clutch. Could i have broken the pressure plate?
