Default 6-spd problem

Hey guys,

I just had my FM Level 1 clutch installed today. I have an issue now with shifting into reverse with the engine on. We adjusted the clutch pedal and there is negligible free play. It is very hard to put the car into reverse with the motor on. With the motor off, I can pretty much go through all the gears fine. The hydraulics are not leaking and have no air. Any ideas what my issue could be?

I came across this old thread where a reverse switch washer was missing. I don't remember having to remove the reverse switch....

Amazing job searching. I was about to post exactly what I said way back then. I know I had that problem on my 5 speed when I posted about that. When I switched out my 6 speed a few weeks ago I did not even take out the switch. I simply unplugged it. So I am not sure if the same issues even exists on the 6 speed. I would recommend going and checking, but if that is not it. I have no clue what it could be.

I'm so tired and disappointed now and not wanting to crawl under there. Hopefully it is a possibility, but the switch was not removed to do the clutch :(
