Tranny/ clutch peoblem. Please help!!

Hey guys, I'm trying to replace mu clutch but I can't get the tranny off. I took off the 6 bolts on the bellhousing & the 2 that are on that plate that screw in to the bell housing & the starter bolts. I also took off the shifter for room (I also removed the drive shaft etc.). So the tranny is hanging & ready to. Come out & it won't come out. I try to wiggle it & I move the engine too. If anyone knows what my problem could be can you please help.

Depending on your clutch this may be normal break-in sounds. My Spec chattered like crazy during break-in but I haven't had any issues since then (around 6k miles)

This is VERY true. Also if the fly wheel was not re-surfaced or new it will also chatter. My King Cobra clutches said 500 miles of break in time, easy driving, to break in but often took longer. It will be hard to break it in before Tuesday.

Oh. Is your chatter a noise? The chatter I'm referring to is a feeling in the pedal/car.

Was the flywheel re-surfaced? If not clutch material from the last clutch will still be on there making it hard for the new one to engage. If it was re-surfaced and you have this problem it either has 'hot spots' which may wear in in time or it is out of balance, or possibly not aligned properly. If it is new it's defiantly not aligned properly.
