it sounds like you are not getting enough travel from the clutch slave to completely release the clutch disc. That means that the input shaft is still spinning when you are trying to shift gears.

how does your clutch pedal feel?

did you do a slave cylinder or did you replace the master, line and slave altogether as one piece?

you could also check your shifter cables. I have seen cables that start coming apart and then make it hard to shift. I have even seen the cable break and they can't shift gears. but your really sounds like the slave isn't moving enough to free up the disc.

why did you do the clutch? How was the clutch fork and ball stud when you had the trans off?

I've put two clutches in the car when I bought the car it was going due to bad driving and now knowing that the master/slave cylinder had it's help in destroying the first clutch I put in so thus time put the stage 1 New everything it's freezing here and I can go out there right now and it will run awesome like screams down the road like a bat outta hell but as soon as it reads 1/4 temp it's starts clutch drag and slite crunching of gears then at full temp crap crap crap
