Default wont go into gear!

just did a dohc zc swap, si trans.


I have the ACT clutch and pressure plate, oem flywheel.


it all went together easily, made sure that spring was right that holds the throw out bearing.

when I adjust the clutch, it seems to work OK for about 5 mins, then it stops letting it go into gear. I adjusted it to the point that I ran out of threads



i just don't know where to begin,



thanks,


matt

I am assuming cable clutch setup

Clutch cable is stretched or aftermarket

Clutch bracket is cracked and flexing.

Need to know if its cable or hydro clutch would help to ID the issue.
You stated adjust the clutch so i would assume cable.
Make sure everything is tight anywhere the cable should be secure.
Throw-out bearing look good on the install?
When you say stops letting it go into gear is this a clutch issue or possible linkage issue?
Have you checked to make sure everything is bolted up tight and nothing bent?
Hows the "Bitch pin" nice and tight?

Check your pedal assembly where the clutch pivots, they're known to bend with a heavy clutch.

thanks! this (cable) clutch is brand new. <10miles. brand new clutch, pressure plate, resurfaced OE flywheel.

I read somewhere that because of all this, sometimes the clutch wont fully disengage. I read to rev the engine a few times... it worked!

unfortunately, the car was then thrown into limp mode for code 4,8,9, and 17... blah. I got annoyed, and pulled the battery/fuses to reset. haven't driven it again yet.

also, I used an old wrist pin as a spacer, cut a slice down the center of it, and backed the adjustment back quite a bit!

When the cable is adjusted properly, there should be a tiny amount of free play on the clutch release arm. You should be able to pull up on the arm with your hand and have it move about 1/4” - 1/8”.

Dorman Cable? Junk it.

I put the stretched out OEM back on after 30 minutes of driving.

did you figure out the issue? It sounds like maybe your cable wasn't adjusted to the right length.

Yeah, I did end up adding a spacer to the end of the cable, and the revving truck worked out. It's a brand new clutch, resurfaced flywheel. And its been raining. I'm sure it just got a little stuck together
