Just repalced Tranny

Just wondering if anyone knows?? I just replaced my T-5 Transmission on a 1986 CJ7, straight six, at the same time I replaced the clutch also. All assembly went okay.

Well after starting up when I placed the transmission in gear it goes in okay (no grinding or chattering), then when I start to release the clutch it starts to kinda squeal....The transmission at no time turns the drive shaft at all. Does anyone know whats up?? I was too tired to mess with it and it was getting dark. Well, I think it might be as easy as the pedal linkage (not enough or too much free play) but not too sure and I dont want to break anything or make it more worse than it may have already been.

I greatly appreciate any help given,
Andy

well, lets look at the obvious first
1) is the transfer case in neutral?
2) you say you rebuilt it- are you certain the shifter and links in good shape?( you may have a false engagement situation-ie"inbetween gears")
3) did you free spin the tranny with lube or use lube when reassembling?( i have seen cases where people have used a heavy grease and it actually impeded operation)

hope this helps

Tranny Fixed

Thanks for your reply,

I went through all you talked about. The tranny was actually a new one not rebuilt. The problem was with the cluth disc. I had to take my Jeep to a transmission shop to get it checked out. When they took it apart the splined shaft on the clutch disc was too short. Go figure the auto parts store gave me the wrong one. I should have seen it but oh well. Everything works great now.
