    TJ clutch question

    Anyone ever replaced clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, and a sealed clutch master and slave cylinder, then not be able to get it in gear while engine running? I'm working on a 2004 tj with the 4.0. Any ideas as to what went wrong? Thanks for any input.
    Clutch and p.p. is the same brand as what I took out.
    Pressure plate is in the correct way

    Since you replaced the slave and master, did you bleed them?

    did you put the clutch in backwards? did you use the alignment tool to assemble? did you get the trans in straight and not ****ed sideways a little? if you did all this o.k then you may have broken parts inside trans while assembly?

    Clutch disc is in correct way, used alignment tool. Leaning towards wrong slave, going to OEM next for slave cylinder.

    Did you use the like pre bleed slave? Also it comes with the band holding the rod in place. Did you cut it when you put it in?

    Yes purchased pre bleed master/slave combo, and no did not cut strap.
    Pulling trans back out and trying different brand, pretty sure got wrong pressure plate. Thanks for the replies, I'll post up if this fixes problem

    The little white band on the front of the slave needs to be cut or will not push in on anything.

    So turns out that this RAM clutch kit does not work with my application even though according to summit it fits. Pressure plate is a little more than 1/4 inch shorter than the LUK gold pressure plate. She's up and running , thanks for everyone's help!
