    I'm doing a j swap into a 2000 civic hx and am having a weird problem! The v6 is out of an02 accord coupe and the 6 speed manual is out of an 04 accord coupe also a v6. The problem I'm having is that when I bolt the transmission to the block my throw out bearing is depressing the fingers on the pressure plate thus making the clutch inoperable! Anyone have a solution?

    Is the clutch preloaded? I'm guessing not.

    Unbolt the clutch slave, then install the trans. The unloaded slave is forcing the clutch fingers to depress, making it hard to bolt up.

    OK, I just found out that the V6 (only) gets a clutch preload adjuster in it. This adjuster is set with a special tool (costs about 1000 dollars). Don't know if any of the guys doing 6 speed swaps has run into this, or heard about this or not. Seemed kind of strange it's only for a V6 though.
    You might want to check into it.
