I actually installed a return spring after installing the TSK3 kit and there was no happy medium where the spring was stiff enough to return the clutch fork, but soft enough not to impede the actuation. The first spring I used barely relieved pressure on the TOB, but when I pressed the clutch pedal it stuck to the floor. If I pulled the spring, the clutch pedal felt fine. As soon as I threw it on, the pedal stuck to the floor. The strangest part was that I AM actually pulling the clutch fork the right direction, so if anything it should be HARDER to press the pedal, not easier. Weird. So I installed a lighter spring and the pedal felt fine, but the TOB was still being forced on the PP.
I bled the line multiple times, and ended up buying a new CSC, thinking the stronger return spring was causing the worn CSC to bind. I installed it this past Wednesday, but it hasn't entirely fixed the issue. Then again, I've got multiple issues, including a possible pilot bearing failure, or clutch PP failure, so its difficult to diagnose so many at the same time. I've been a little preoccupied with the bigger issue.
I'm pulling the transmission again next weekend(thanks again for your DIY video; I would have been lost without it).
Here's my plan of attack:
-Pull clutch PP and LWFW off engine and inspect PP, clutch disk
-Install new flywheel and pilot bearing
-reassemble, less intercooler
-Bleed CSC, check for play
-Test different return springs again
-Hope for the best..
Any other suggestions?
