    I just replaced my T14 transmission, the clutch and slave drive in my Jeep and now after starting it, it won't go into gear. It grinds when I try to put it in reverse. The only thing I put back in that was the same is the pressure plate and clutch fork.
    Thanks!

    Welcome @CJ5JeepNooby ...with all the changes: trans, clutch etc I would have went with all new parts. Just thinking of some possibilities like T14 new or used or rebuilt? Matched clutch with PP and fork? Some CJ owners could chime in so hang tight.

    I would suggest verifying that the clutch is operating.

    It's rebuilt and this is totally the 1st time I've done any kind of repairs like this.
