Default Grinding into 3rd with new clutch

Ever since I replaced my stock clutch with an ACT clutch ZM2-XTSS, when I shift into third at high RPM (accel quickly), it grinds a bit. This doesn't happen with any other gears, or at low rpm. If I push it up a bit and let it help pull it into gear (synchros?), it goes right in with no problems.

I added tranny fluid since some was lost in the swap, and greased the shifter.

Any ideas?

Did you check your slave cylinder?

The level on the clutch fluid resevoir does not seem to be moving. I'm assuming the issue are you eluding to it a leaky slave. Would that present itself in the loss of clutch fluid?

If you double clutch does it still grind?

^First, if you ever talk **** to one of the locals again, I'll sign you up for a lifetime Playgirl subscription. Second, if somebody asks you a question at another location, it's probably because they're trying to get you a solution in the shortest amount of time.... ON THE OFFCHANCE YOU LOG IN SOMEWHERE AND ONLY CHECK YOUR AIM AND DON'T HAVE TIME FOR SURFING, YOU'LL GET THE ANSWER SOONER AND MAYBE SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM! And adding a smiley at the end of your post doesn't mean it's OK to be a dick... dick.

Well I apologise for your boy thinking I was talking ****. Chad is one of my friends and I do not believe he would have taken that offensively. He if feels otherwise, then I will handle the situation differenly if required. Lighten up man, I wasn't out to **** anyone off.

incorrect, screwing back = joining the club
crying like a baby = warnings
3 warnings = 2-day ban
crying about temp ban = perm ban

Listen, don't ever be sarcastic to us online ever again. We've been taking noxplod for probably the last 5 months in a row, and I'm squatting 450 for reps, little man. Don't ever think for one second that I wouldn't squash you like the little bug you are. Girls come up to me and ask if I'm a professional body builder all the time, and they also say how hot I am. So if you ever begin to think for one second that you're better than me, you better think again. i drive an M3 that's not leased, and I can bench twice my weight (I weigh 210 at 7% bodyfat, ------). PM me for pics if you don't believe me, little ------. Final warning.

Don't mess with Hustler, I saw him in person at the National Amateur Bodybuilders Convention in Tulsa, OK, he was banned from the contest for looking way to proffesional. We later hung out at the local straight bar and he kicked six dudes asses just for staring at his crotch. I kid you not, that NOexplod stuff will make you a mean ************, I suggest you go buy some yourself and comeback and then start posting.


As far as you grind, how are your motor mounts?

Mounts are good, as far as I can tell. The engine doesn't seem to be vibrating more than usual or slanted. Quickly looking at them, they look fine.

Just take apart the tranny and re install the clutch and make sure its done right. Torque the bolts to specs. Bleed the slave. And make sure the clutch is in when your shifting

I posted here before asking on AIM, that way if anyone asks further questions about your issues one topic might be covered already. Sounds like hustler wants to eat you for breakfast.
