Was it a southbend clutch and flywheel?

The reason I ask is that they had a bad habit of making their flywheels too thick, which threw everything out of whack as far as adjustment. Go to AUS300zx.com and search southbend clutch and you will find a long thread about this issue.

Sounds like it's time to drop the transmission and get a good look at what it going on in there.

Just clutch and pressure plate. Rps flywheel with new replacement plates. Moved the car yesterday. Pedal DEFFINETELY feels different now. Possibly still a hydraulic issue?

If the system has been vacuum bled from both points, and your cylinders are both new, I don't see how it could be. I chased that rabbit trail trying to figure mine out, replaced both cylinders, bled like two quarts worth of fluid through the system, and it didn't work until I changed the clutch and flywheel.

As much as it sucks, you are probably gonna have to drop the trans to see what is up.
