Clutch issues after new engine

Hey everybody,
Need some helpful insight here. Just replaced a bad engine with a nicer 2.5 into a 92. The transplant went smoothly enough, not too many four letter words or badly busted knuckles. Got the engine in and hooked up Sunday night, started wonderfully. Then, putting it into gear encountered issues.
1st: No pressure on clutch pedal. Down to floor and nothing after a couple of pumps. Jeep not running at this point.
2nd: Started Jeep, with reservoir top off, checked fluid, pumped, got some pressure in pedal. Finally, stick shift would go into gear.
3rd: Opened Garage door, prepared to back out...Jeep Shoots out full bore, clutch pedal is only 3/4 inch off of floor. The gas seems to be running without my depressing the pedal. First gear ran fine for 30 feet, but couldn't get into second.
Tried to bleed clutch, but couldn't find bleeder valve. Is this a self bleeding mechanism with the top off that air bubbles out of? What about the gas issue? Our thoughts are that the transmission is hooked up properly otherwise I wouldn't get into any gear at all much less move forward or backwards. Thanks for your help in advance!

You shouldn't be having these problems if the transmission worked fine before the engine swap, it does not make sense. I guess you have an internal slave. Certainly your clutch is not working properly. A gas pedal with a mind of it's own sounds like a toyota. Are you sure you didn't put toyota parts on it? That would explain random rapid acceleration.

On the clutch part all you need to do is bleed your system.

Thanks Mike,
Thats what we figured. As far as the gas goes, it may just be a line thing...Not to big a deal.
As far as bleeding the system on a 92, any idea where a bleeder is located or is it just a self bleeding system?
