I have a 1984 GT with a freshly rebuilt motor and original T5 Transmission. I replaced the clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing, and pilot bearing while I had the motor out. Now when I attempt to put it in gear (with the clutch pedal all they way down), it stalls the engine. It won't even go into reverse, just grinds.
I have already checked to make sure that the clutch and throwout bearing are not installed backwards. The cable is tight.
I cannot figure out what is wrong!
The clutch fork is somewhat loose on the end by the pivot. Could that possibly cause this? If not, then what could???

the clutch disc cant go on backwards...i checked 2 months ago on mine anyways and it would have been impossible to mount the pressure plate to the flywheel with the disc on backwards. Do you have an adjustable clutch cable? if so id tighten it up once and see if maybe while the pedal is pushed all the way down the throw out bearing might not be applying enough force to the pressure plate to disengage the clutch fully.
