Alright, After working every spare second for the past 6 days I've replaced my clutch, throwout bearing, and pilot bearing, as well as had my flywheel resurfaced. So after getting everything finally put back together today, I pushed in the clutch, held my breath, and started her up. So far everything was going smoothly. So now the real test, I started to let the clutch out in neutral and it began making this horrible scratching/grinding sound :shocked: so I quickly pushed the clutch back in. So after contemplating what that sound could be I though maybe the gears weren't lined up correctly or something, since I had also installed a short-shifter, so I put it in first and s-l-o-w-l-y started to clutch out once again and like magic, there was no sound and I could feel the car wanting to move forward. Next, I pushed the clutch and tried the same thing in reverse and once again no sound and I could feel the car wanting to move backwards. So now I'm thinking that my diagnosis was correct about the gears being lined up. Now with a little more confidence, I put it in neutral and started letting the clutch out again....... no sound....but....the RPM's began dopping as though it were under load, like it was still in reverse except it wasn't trying to move. So I tried first again and the exact same thing happened, the RPM's dropped like it's in gear except it's not trying to move at all. Same for reverse. So now here I am at a total loss. Does anyone have any idea what it could be or what I should do now?
