If the disc is installed correctly the clutch will engage and disengage smoothly. In most cases if the disc is installed backwards the clutch disc will bind against the flywheel/crankshaft bolts and not release resulting with a clutch that doesn't disengage. More than likely if the disc was installed backwards the disc is now damaged and will need to be replaced.

What is a good aftermarket clutch to put in a 98 Tacoma 27 4X4?

Having sold and installed many clutches, I have learned not to use an rebuilt or remanufactured clutch. I would only use a NEW aftermarket or original equipment clutch regardless of brand name. Toyota buys their component parts from vendors so often the aftermarket item is the exact same clutch you would buy if you got it right from Toyota. I hope this helps a little. Mark

1992 Jeep Wrangler gears grind when being shifted and the rpms have to be about 2500 before you can shift without grinding all fluids have been checked What can cause that?

I would suspect a weak clutch slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder which may be preventing the clutch from disengaging fully; The slave cylinder is connected hydraulically to the clutch master cylinder. The clutch master is where you add fluid.

Why would the gear shift stick?

Possible bad clutch will do it. Check to make sure that the trans fluid is full with the right viscosity and check the clutch, clutch master cylinder,& the slave clyinder in the transmission.

Hey Dan==It can be several things. first make sure it has fluid in the master cyl. If it is full, you probably need to have it checked out . GoodluckJoe clutch slave cylinder or clutch master, or brake master, all are not very expensive spring
