| | Not going into ANY gear smoothly, Tick MC
We did a 6 speed swap on the car, and I used a brand new LS7 Clutch, and ordered a Tick Master and new slave at the same time. The trans I bought used from a local buddy..its supposed to be a built t56 with low mileage on it, but some track use. When we installed the Tick MC, the clutch pedal was about a 1/4" past the brake pedal, which from what I have read on here is where most of the guys end up adjusting theirs. So we left it there. Trans shifted fine for the first couple of days.
Took the car to the local LS1 shop to get it dyno tuned. I get it back, and first 2 days it shifts like normal. At this point I have put maybe 100 miles total on the Tick MC, new clutch, and new slave. So on the third day I notice its not going into gear as smoothly. Its not grinding, but its not going in like it should. Fourth day, it starts getting a little more obvious that it doesn't want to go in gear smoothly. It happens in all the gears. The first few days it was going in like butter.
I thought it had something to do with us not setting the Tick Master at the shortest rod length, and adjusting from there. So today I adjusted the rod to make the pedal a little shorter. Now its about a quarter inch before the brake pedal, but it still does the same thing. Fluid level is were it should be. What do you guys think is going bad? Anything I could do to try to diagnose it without pulling the trans out? Not sure if it matters, but I am using a Hurst shifter.
The car its in only has 401rwhp..
