So I recently had to replace the throwout bearing in my car. I looked at the clutch and pessure plate, and the looked ok, so I put them back in. The clutch disk was about 50%, but there was definitely some wear left in it. My problem is, I can't get the pedal to come back up all the way. If I adjust the linkage to where it will come back up all the way, the clutch slips horribly. I replaced the z bar bushings, and it moves freely now. The pedal support bushings appear ok. It hangs straight and seems to move fairly free. It is not hard to depress at all. From what I understand the assist spring only helps pull the pedal down, not back up. Is this true? Could it be the assist spring? Or is my clutch just worn enough that it won't adjust properly? If I had the money, I would just throw a new centerforce clutch in and be done with it!
