I would really really really bleed the clutch. I did a Mini Cooper transmission recently and it called for a special tool to compress the slave cylinder during bleeding and I was, like, " I don't need that ****!" And I was wrong. Couldn't get the cclutch to relase. Wouldn't even go into gear. I made a special tool, rebleed, and got it to work.


I doubt you could even smash a dog dish pressure plate against a flat wheel, but maybe.

Plate could also have bent or worn fingers. A fresh one should have been installed.


I forget exact spec for clutch pedal throw, but 1 cm may not be enough.
