    New clutch question/problem.

    I finally broke down and started my 5 speed swap this weekend. I have a competition stage 2 clutch. I put in a new pilot bearing and throwout bearing and had the flywheel resurfaced. After installing the trans today, i pulled up on the black lever to see how tight it was and it felt like there was no tension on it at all. Is this correct?

    yes. once you put in your cable it will be fine.

        Yes there should be tension on the release lever. Are you sure you installed the throwout bearing spring correctly? Looks like you might have to pull the trans

        TegFan how would the clutch cable create tension? The tension comes from the throwout bearing spring and fork

          Well, doing my clutch i was also worried about the looseness of the arm. Put my cable through and adjusted the freeplay to spec. Clutch works fine. Still have to answer your question tho.

          There should be little but not a lot of tension.

            The throwout bearing moves in and out when i move the lever. Which way is the correct way to install the spring?

              You wouldn't have been able to adjust the freeplay without the spring tension, read my answer below

              When you pull the lever it should spring back into place. Here's a picture:

                Im pretty sure thats the way i put it in...and it does spring back into place. It just doesnt take hardly any effort to pull it up.

                            You have to adjust the cable by turning the black plastic nut. That will raise the lever to a point where the release bearing touches the pressure plate springs. The correct adjustment is a few mm short of it touching the pressure plate.

                              I take it you didn't have any problems then? I just installed a Competition Clutch flywheel, and stage 2 clutch this past week. 70miles on it, smooth sailing so far!

                                the lever has a wide range of movement. when your moving it by hand it's not engaging the pressure plate yet. there's a lot of free movement in that lever. once you install the clutch cable it pulls the lever arm up and then you adjust the free play to 3-4mm and you'll be all set.
