Default clutch install question

aright so this is a newbie question i'm sure... but this is my first trans/clutch install on my '90 EX.. i got everything back together... go to adjust the clutch and it has zero pedal feel.... so before i go freak out and have to tear it all down to find the problem... does the trans fluid give the pedal feel?(there is no fluid in the trans right now) or did i screw something up? if i did screw something up... what should i check first? thanks!

no.... adjust the clutch cable... you arent engauging the clutch enough. Or too much.

it doesnt matter where the cable is adjusted... there is just no pedal feel.. pedal just hits the floor... or the cable is completely tight and just stretches.. i've tried both extremes (full tight and full loose) and everything in between... doesnt help

does the clutch move?? try taking the service plate off the tranny and look at it while someone else is moving the pedal... If the cable is streches and doesn't move the clutch, either the cable isnt routed properly routed (allowed to move), or the clutch is being physically blocked from moving.

EDIT: is the spring attached to the pedal??

took the tranny back off.. throwout bearing is installed right.... spring is all set... the pressure plate fins were all pushed in... they were stuck in the depressed form (not angled out like normal) but when i took the bolts off it sprang back to normal... would torquing the bolts in too much do that? the clutch disk was installed the right way too... i'm pretty sure i torqued the bolts to spec? anything else that might have caused that?

ok so this is how it happened. when you were torque'n the bolts down, aliens came from outer space that created a negative charge in the air causing a magnetic field that warped the fins on the clutch... or no?

well what were they stuck too? how were they stuck in. it problably happened when you pushed in the clutch the first time. thats weird.. aliens.
