6speed issue.

So, a few weeks back i went out with a few buddies racing and after a few burnouts my car wouldnt go into gear. Any gear. Shut the car off and you can row through gears like butter. Put it in gear and try to start it and it lurches forward.  

Fast forward. Pull trans. Install new slave. No dice.

Pull again. Send clutch to mcleod for rebuild as it fused itself together.  Get it back and reinstall. 

STILL cant get in gear. Tob clarence comes to .115

At this point im just gonna slap a th400 in it. 

Master doesnt seem to be leaking? Not sure where else to turn. 

Input and output shaft spin in unison. Drained fluid and no signs of anything metallic.  Inspection plates were removed and no broken teeth on gears.

Think i got it figured out. The slave tube was literally touching the first disc in the clutch.
Somehow the shim measurements didnt add up. Originally measured 3 times. Got the same numbers. Needed .415 worth of shims to get in spec. So thats what i installed. Well i never double checked after install. MY SCREW UP
Pulled it all out again and thats when i saw it was hitting. Since this slave is shot i decided to measure with a clamp holding it all the way back to the base. Did it a few times with different shim combinations and got it where it needs to be. I think lol wont know until new slave shows up.

I also took the time to pull the gate cover off the trans and put it in all 6 gears by hand. All of which went in smooth. (With the assistance of a pair of vise grips to simulate the shifter)

I have seen guys get it wrong when measuring, but I still think the clearance necessary, like .200, is pretty accurate. Not going into gear when running is 90% of the time the TOB running out of travel and needing a spacer behind it. How thick varies. Another reason is bent PP fingers and the TOB getting cocked and then its fucked also.

Its literally a brand new clutch. I doubt the fingers are bent but its possible
