Thanks for the replies. Yes, the engine is turning over. The clutches installed are brand new and with the correct weight non-detergent oil. Shimming has been a little tricky, but the washer / part stack all appears to be correct and in the correct order. I will goof around with it some more, checking the clutch bell cleanliness and condition.
Other threads have mentioned a run-in period with new clutches, I tried this without luck. Also, the parts diagrams are kinda vague. Does anyone have a good or detailed diagram / video clips / picture series that shows the correct parts?? Thanks!
