STUCK CLutch Pedal

My S13 pedal is stuck to the floor.
Now if i reach down and pull it back up it comes up but its hard to push it down and when it doesn go down it takes alot of force and it makes a loud grunt noise like something is breaking over and over again. Any sugeestions to check? my friend told me to check the slave cylinder but let me remind you before all of this everything was the smoothest ever.

the only things i could think off that would cause this would be a fault clutch fork, throw out baring, or pressure plate. either way the tranny needs to be dropped and inspected.

Yeah, buy a new pilot bearing and replace it. You should have had a new one with your clutch kit.

well this is an AUTO engine that im putting on a manual trans. but the pilot bushing looks bigger than the manual motor, and it wont come out either. but im gonna see if a earing puller will work to get it out and see if the new pilot bushing will fit in there. they just seem like 2 different sizes.

the one on the automatic engine is a pilot convertor, the one on the m/t engine is a pilot bushing.

no... you need to extract it and put a proper bushing in there. it takes all of 3 minutes with a slide hammer to remove the auto-bushing and install the manual bushing

Agreed. Pull the auto bushing out and install the manual bushing. the front tapered section of the manual transmission seats itself in the bushing. be sure to have it pushed in enough as far as it can go down the hole in the rear of the crankshaft too.
