new parts gone bad

So I bought an exedy stage one clutch and 8 lb fidanza flywheel and had them installed. I was so excited to finally have my car up and running again. The engaging point seemed a little high but I wasn't that worried.

The next day I took it for a drive and after about 15 minutes I couldn't push the stick into any gear. The clutch felt the same but it just wouldn't go into any gear. I started it up the next day and everything worked fine. 15 minutes later the same thing happened. Called the guy who did it and he says that it just needs to be bled again.

What do you guys think? Does that sound like it could be the problem? Thanks in advance.

Re: new parts gone bad

have you adjusted the pedal??

There's a 12mm nut on the rod for the clutch master cylinder. Which is the rod that connects to the clutch pedal.

You need to adjust ur pedal height.

Re: new parts gone bad

Thanks. He said that he had already bled it but that he probably needs to bleed it again. So, hopefully he will come do it today. I hope that's what's wrong.

The clutch pedal has been adjusted. Now I don't have to push the clutch as far down as I used to. I still push it to the floor but the distance is shorter.

I will let you all know what happens if he does come today.

Re: new parts gone bad

Here is an update for those who are interested. My mechanic bled it again and then the clutch felt a lot softer. We took her out for a spin and she ran well for the first 10 minutes. Then, the clutch got hard and it became more and more difficult to put into gear again. He came to the conclusion that it must be the clutch master cylinder and I am happy to so say that I can now drive my lude for over 10 minutes (hopefully it stays that way). So there wasn't a need to buy a new clutch and flywheel. All I needed was that $60 clutch master cylinder. Oh well, I'll find a way to deal with it.
