In the process of installing new trans and clutch into 1997 metro 1.0 and also converting to 1.3 clutch/flywheel. I am having trouble closing the gap, approx 1/2" between trans and engine, rechecked alignment with dowel and seems to be good. Any tips on doing this and what could the problem be.

did you get the clutch disk in backwards?

did you jam the throwout bearing by pulling on the clutch arm?

Good points fellows, thanks but I have triple checked everything, unless the clutch is mislabeled, I put the side marked F/W side facing the flywheel. Have not had chance to go back out and work on it, cause of work and too cold outside.

One side will be "flatter" than the other. that side goes to the flywheel
