Stan, did you verify the throwout bearing fit the transmission front yoke and all that? Would hate for it to get pinched and not disengage. If on the other hand the pedal goes to the floor easily, too much pressure could blow the piston in the slave, or clutch cylinder itself, which may or may not mean the trans stuff is fine, just not enough pressure to work the clutch.
 


The slave/master is a new setup from an early 90s Pathfinder.

Exactly my thoughts.....Something is not right if he had to do anything to the clutch to install it.
I just don't have the strength to do it alone..................

I appreciate the offer.  This is the downside to living here.

Heck, I would come over and help if it weren't for the timezones between us!
 
I do hate to say it, but drop the tranny and get an idea of what is going on with the tranny off, feel of the pedal, movement of the fork/throwout bearing, clutch clearance. Is the access cover enough visual area to do any of this without having to remove the tranny? Might be able to see something that way to check some things.

I am NOT comfortable about the way it went in.  It was a concern to me then and I think it has come back to bite me in the azz.

I too would help.  Where and how is your car situated?  I've done a few 4 speeds and have always done them by myself on the floor.  I use a regular wheeled floor jack and then some wood to shim it to the right angle and then slide it in.  Can be a trial getting it up and lined up properly but once in position not too bad to get it into the bellhousing and through the clutch.

Well from what I can see in the pic you have a hoist...a tall tranny jack...seems like it's doable to me...but then I'm a few years younger then Y'all.
