    Hard Shifts

    Ok so i got my transmission back and got it all installed and bled and the car drives fine but between shifts it feels like something blocks the shifter for a second and then it goes into gear. It takes like a second longer to shift than it should and even when i'm stopped going into first is tough. My thoughts are i need a new master cylinder but i wanted to see what others thoughts are before changing it.

    The tranny got a Tick Performance stage 2 rebuild kit, a new GM Slave, and an LS7 Clutch

    Thoughts?

    sounds like the clutch isn't fully disengaging or the pilot bearing is bad.

    I installed a new GM Pilot bearing was installed so i'm guessing it's got to be the master. I will probably try to bleed the system again and if that doesn't work on to the master. It's the only thing i haven't changed.

    Brand new Tick Master Cylinder installed and i still have the problem
    Also when i push in the pedal and try and take off it engages so quickly and makes kind of pushes the padal back at you to where you can't take off smoothly.

    do you have it adjusted properly. try putting the car in first gear and push in the clutch and rev the engine to 5000 rpms if the car creeps forward then the clutch isnt fully disengages
