Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse
2 things; If you jack up one front wheel, stick it in gear, does it try and turn the engine? If it does then the trans is turning. Did you check the trans operated in all gears before you fitted it?
Next, is it possible the clutch friction plate is in backwards. If so then the raised side that holds the damper springs is hard up against the fly wheel and causing the drag that prevents the clutch from releasing.
I cant help with info as to whether the trans is a fit but while you are underneath the hood, look and see if the clutch arm appears to move the right amount when the pedal is pressed. The only other thing I can think of is that the trans is seized somehow. You can test this while its jacked up by starting up on idle with it in gear, the raised wheel will turn.. Try this in all gears but BE CAREFUL with it on jacks, better to have jackstands under both sides.

You might have to shift the transmission by hand when you jack it up... Your shift cable may be broken. If you purchased a Transmission from a spyder then you should be good no matter the year. Like the last answer said jack the entire front of the car up and put it in gear start the car have a friend stand and watch the tires to see if they move. Then you from inside press the clutch the tires should slow down to stop if so the clutch is good and your shift cables are shot. Not enough info sweetie why did the transmission go bad in the first place and did you put a new clutch in the car with the used trans?

The hydraulic cylinder is in the bell housing. When you separate the motor and tranny, you will see it as a unit with the throw-out bearing. Take the hydraulic line off before you start. You will have to bleed it when you are done.

being 1991, and a sport car, good idea to go ahead and replace slave cylinder since you have them and very easy to replace. If you able to push your car while is in any gear more likely the clutch pad pressure plate are worned and slipping. If you can push the car while is in gear even the engine is not running than it will be your clutch pad and your presure plate is shot that would mean you tranny has to come out. once you in the tranny you might as well replace with new clucth pad, pressure plate and throw out bearing. Also check your fly wheel make sure is not ate up. if it is then you will have to have the flyweel resurface by a machine shop. using the lift is the best way to work on the Z. most garage will charge 400-500 to do the work.

Testimonial: "THANKS I'M GOING YO GET UNDER IT AND SEE IF THERE COULD BE A LINKAGE ISSUE. BUT I THINK YOU ARE RIGHT ON!"
SOURCE: What would prevent the clutch
Have you considered the syncronizers? if they are the problem though you will need a mechanic to repair it as they are not DIY unless you have a lot of experience

SOURCE: 95 mitsubishi manual. Shifting problems. Changed slave cylinder and bled line and it worked perfectly . Today it won't shift unless engine is off. Should I bleed line again? What else might be wro
Check the slave cylinder is coming out when you push the clutch down ,without my head under the bonnet its difficult to say but either you have lost the fluid or the thrust bearing has now pushed through the pressure plate with the correct pressure .
