clutch issue

ok I got 50K miles on original clutch, and i am the original owner. I got honda parts for the replacment.

after opening it up the only issue i saw was the jugger spring was digging into the first steal plate. other than that everything else looked like new.

I found the inner basket didnt have to be removed to replace the plates. Read throught the manual got the "A" and "B" plates in the right places made sure the jugger spring was oriented the right way. put the new springs on and closed it up.

now the clutch will not disengage when I pull the lever. blead the clutch slave with no improvment. My next step is to put the old plates back in to see if it will work and figure out whats the difference is, unless one of you guys have a better idea.

Sounds logical to me.
Are you sure you got the clutch master and slave properly bled?
Air compresses, brake fluid doesn't. That's why any air in the system compromises your slave cylinders ability to disengage the clutch.

Have you bled at the banjo bolt at the master cylinder? When I can't get all the air out, that's the last place I bleed. Just use a thick rag so you don't get fluid on the paint.

When ever you bleed a hydraulic system (clutch or brakes) the master's banjo bolt is the first you should bleed and then take it from there to the rest parts
