You may just need to adjust the pedal travel.

Love this Jeep!! The cj uses linkages, make sure they are all free and lubed. The old clutch what was the problem? Worn out and slipping? You also might have the disc in backwards. This is most likely the issue. If the clutch pedal action was smooth before and the linkage is hooked up correctly its in the clutch for sure. It is marked flywheel side and or pressure plate side.

Go to a more experienced repair shop, one that specializes in transmissions. Someone that says "maybe this, maybe that, I dunno" really doesn't know, and should be avoided at all cost.

Sounds like the clutch plate or pressure plate, or both, are either
1) worn out and need replacement, or (MORE LIKELY)
2) need a SIMPLE ADJUSTMENT.

Make sure you are depressing thew clutch pedal as far to the floor as you can when you are having this problem.

It is entirely possible your driver's seat is too far back, and you're just not "getting there" with that pedal.

Reverse gear is does not use a synchro gear, so is it possible the clutch is not disengaging completely ?
The only other thing that comes to mind would be something in the linkage that keeps you from moving it far enough to engage.

Check to see that none of the gear linkages have been bent or misaligned. Check for wear in the gear linkage joints and also in the gear lever attachment point.

Almost seems like clutch pedal won't go far enough to allow gear to engage and yet it only happens periodically - fluids are good and according to manual,I don't see any adjustments that could be made.


Bleed out the old fluid from the clutch slave cylinder (use brake fluid)it may be contaminated with water, the other possibility is that the pilot bearing is starting to bind this will cause the shifter to not engage as the clutch is pushed in.

its possible your clutch cable got stretched out. if you are lucky, your car came with an adjustable cable stock, and the slack can be picked up, it not, the cables arent too expensive, and with a little work, you could install it yourself. but its not the most fun job.

have your friend sit in the car and push the clutch pedal, and measure how far the little arm connected to the tranny (that will move up and down when the clutch pedal is pushed and let out). it should move almost an inch at least.(generally) some cars if the clutch is worn enough dont require it to move quite as far.

Have someone push the clutch pedal while you watch the slave cylinder to see if it is pushing the clutch fork far enough. If it is not, then you will need to bleed the system again. Only use Dot 3 non ABS brake fluid (don't mix em). If it is moving it, then there is damage inside the bell housing.

Ax 15 transmission grind after new clutch installation


Take it back to the guy that did the work. Sounds like he's got the pressure plate on crooked putting it in a bind. Whatever it is happened during the installation. That's a given!
