Cash, did you do a clutch job while you were at it? Were any of the
new parts different? The throw out bearing and pivot ball or clutch
fork changed?

You can take the clutch rod out by opening up the bell housing by
removing the cover where the rod enters, and pulling the plug out of
the hole above that, and removing the cotter pin and pin. See page 114
in clarks catalog for linkage setup. Mark Durham

The stick goes through the gears and I can feel them engage but, the wheels spin freely.  I got under the car to check things and I was reminded of something I'd forgotten about.  The clutch adjustment rod that comes out of the bell housing was very difficult to hook up.  I put the engine back in after rebuilding the trans. Bill Wells helped on the rebuild (Thanks Bill).  I suspect that the problem is that the clutch is engaged because of how hard it was to get the adjustment rod to bolt up.  The rod was cut in half some time in the past and welded, but not a butt weld.  It was overlapped by about an inch and a half and I think that's the problem.  I've backed the adjusting nut all the way to the end of the rod.
