Did the swap clean and without trouble. Supported trans with a jack, now when I try to take off the car will die If I give it gas, but will crawl with the clutch out. What happened?

 

 

It sounds as if your linkage on the shifter is not right. I would suspect that even though your car appears it is in 1st gear ; it truely is not. It sounds as if your car is in third or fifth gear. Some how you must have the linkage out of alignment. Just my $.02

Put the car back on jack stands (or a hoist) and check each of the three arms of the linkage. It is possible that one of the "pins" holding one of the outer arms has come loose? If they are all connected properly, then your new shifter is defective. The unit only goes in in one direction. It is not like you could have put it in backwards! :headscratch:
