auto to manual swap Help!!!!
Ok,so here it is, first off i love all ur answers you guys know ur stuff. Neways, i have a 95 wrangler yj. It was an automatic, my buddy has a parts jeep (93 yj manual). Both have the 2.5 only difference im auto and he is manual. I decided to take all his components and transform mine into a manual. Installation was smoothe and everything is done. Went to start up the jeep. It fired and idles normal. When i shift into 1st,2nd,3rd,and 4th i could do so with or without engaging the clutch and the jeep doesnt move. Now when i try shifting into 5th or my reverse gear i have to engage the clutch or it will grind. When i let the clutch out you could hear the tranny spinning inside but the jeep still wont move. If you put it in gear and push it it isnt stopped by the tranny being in gear. Im told that it might be the throw out berring sticking, making the clutch unable to grab back onto the flywheel, or is it the clutch and the slave making it incapible of catching into gear. I figured id ask because it is 200 dollars to replace the clutch and the slave. Ne ideas?
