Hey all, after taking the car to the machanic and finding out he was a complete dumb f*&k, I got the car to start. I can start it when ever I want, but I can't go any where.

I know there is a major issure with teh Clutch Area. Right now the motor is rebuilt, new pilot bearing, clutch, pressure plate, TB, RB aluminum flywheel and counter weight, and a rebuild slave cylinder. The tranny was rebuilt recently.

When I start the car and let it idle it makes a rattiling sound, but when I push the clutch pedal it goes away and every thing is fine, although you can feel a slight vibration if you rev to 4k. I put the car in gear and tried to start it, and the car moved. My pedal STILL sticks to the floor sometimes, especially if you hold it to the floor for a while.

I know that I am going to tow it back up to my moms house to drop the tranny, but is there anything in particular that I should look for?

Sounds like a problem with the hydraulics. Did you try bleeding the system?

They have been bled, I will bleed them once more just to be sure. Other than leaking what should I look for with the hydraulics?

It may be the front cover on the tranny working itself loose. If you have a bearing problem it could vibrate the bolts loose. The T/O bearing slides on the front cover.

The fork itself could be the problem...I've heard of that happening. Also, mine did that when a spring on the clutch broke.
