There are two bolts on the top of the bell housing that are when you look impossible to reach. In the manual I have they are not even there so i dont know how to get to them. Should I undo an engine mount or something?

IT is possible that the transmission was damaged during clutch replacement. IF the box didn't slip home easily but was pulled into place with the flange bolts the damage would be in the clutch plate but it may have put pressure in the input shaft and bearing. The jumping out of gear is indicative of a misaligned gear box to bell housing situation Undo all the flange bolts and check that there is nothing caught between the faces of the box and housing . Re-tension going around the bell housing tightening each bolt a bit at a time . Check that the flange face and the bell housing are together all the way round.5 th gear is in effect outside the gear box proper and is inside the extension housing and is remote from the problem if the box is properly aligned . If misaligned then the wobble in the input shaft will wobble the output shaft which will work the 5th gear out of mesh
Your problem is probably that you have the clutch plate out of position and the clutch shaft is not being allowed to line up with the spigot bearing in the end of the crankshaft. . Get a cheap clutch aligning tool, loosen off the pressure plate bolts and align the clutch plate. Having done that retension the pressure plate bolts. Keep the gearbox evenly spaced around the bell housing as any misalignment will not allow the clutch shaft to engage in the clutch plate and the spigot bearing.
The throw out bearing slides on a collar behind the input shaft on the front of the transmission inside the bell housing. It will require removal of the drive shaft, shifter handle, transmission, & clutch cable to gain access to it. Recomend having this done by a professional.
It sounds like a through out bearing . It rides between the spring on the pressure plate and slave cylinder inside the bell houseing . If the clutch is still working OK no slipage or chatter when relesing the pedal it will likely be OK until the clutch needs to be replaced . How many miles do you have on the clutch 99 and its never been done you must be getting close . But its a sealed bearing and its just a groweling noise
The pressure plate and release bearing are worn out. You will need a new clutch disc, pressure plate and release bearing. You can either get an estimate from a garage or replace the parts yourself. To replace you will need a transmission jack and mechanics tools.Remove the drive line. Support the engine with a stand and block of wood. Remove the rear bracket. Position the jack under the transmission and loosen the clutch adjustment. Separate the linkages and release bearing fork . Remove the bolts surrounding the bell housing. Carefully back out and lower the transmission. Remove and replace the clutch assembly, and pilot shaft bushing (brass part at the center of the flywheel). You use a wooden dowel or a pilot shaft tool to orient the clutch disc inside the pressure plate while re-installing.
The vehicle must be raised on four jackstands. Disconnect the battery pos(+) terminal.The driveshaft has to be removed . Then remove the three starter mounting bolts, this will allow acess to the main feed wire to the starter, remove the 1/2 inch nut and lock washer and remove the wire.Place the starter to the side. Next you'll need to remove the rear tranny mounting bolt. Then remove the crossmember from the frame. This is where you'll wish you hadn't started this job. You must support the tranny while sliding the crossmember out. This can easily be accomplished by placing a small floorjack centered under the tranny pan with a 1 foot by 1 foot square piece of plywood on the jack lift cradle.Next you'll want to remove and put aside any sensors (back-up, speed, gear position...) if utililized from the tranny. Remove all bell housing bolts. remove the slave unit from the bell housing. Very carefully roll the tranny back a small amount and lower the jack a small amount. Continue this until the tranny is free of the pilot bearing.Lower and remove the tranny. Remove the pressure plate in a rotation motion as not to put too much strain on any one single bolt. Remove the pressure plate being careful not to be hit by the clutch disk which will now be free. Check the condition of the flywheel for cracks and glazing. This will determine if it needs to be turned or replaced. Check the pilot bushing with your finger to make sure it turns smoothly and freely.Then......put it back together with your new parts. Any questions? Good luck, Dana
My '86 5.0 was a cable controlled clutch no slave or master cylinders. Make sure the throwout lever is seated properly, and check for movement when the clutch pedal is depressed. It should move at least .75 inches when depressed. Also make sure the bell housing is mating up to the engine completely and all bolts are tight. If all these things are ok it could be an improperly installed or wrong throwout bearing. I hope this helps. I remember what a pain that job was when I did mine esp. that screwy cable pulley thing attached to the clutch pedal. Which also may be the problem. Good luck.
You've installed two cables, both of which broke. You made mention of a metal part bending, is this the fork? You may need to pull the bell housing to check the operation of the fork, throw-out bearing and pressure plate. This does not sound like a cable problem.
Probably a throw-out bearing, also called a clutch release bearing. It will eventually have to be replaced, and sooner better than later. If it freezes up completely, you can do some damage to the clutch assembly or release arm.
