Clutch and throw out bearing

hey,
i have just put a new clutch in my 91 nissan sentra and started putting my transaxle back in, i got it an and oput in about 3 or 4 bolts then hooked up my clutch cable, but when i push the clutch in it goes right to the floor and stays there, so my best guess is the trow out bearing is jammed or no making contact with the presure plate or siomething, i have had the stupid thing in and out 2 times trying to figure out what the problem is, and i have made sure everytime that the throw out bearing is attatched to the fork and working properly, but still no luck, any suggestions to what might be wrong???

Are your engine mounts and trans mounts hooked up ?
The return is provided by the clutch arm and clutch spring, the pedal stays down if there is no return force from the clutch.
the pedal assist spring holds it down, you have to grab it to bring it back up.
Another explanation is the diaphragm over centered, but why would it do that ?
Check the Clutch arm for clues...

Well you could be right, check the diaphram but if its new I doubt its the problem.
the arm moves ok by hand, its spring Ok?
the clearance is about 1/8 to 1/4 ?
Is the bracket bent or moving that hold the cable ?
Check the arm and the fork assembly when its off next time make sure nothings bent or broken.

i am pretty sure nothin is bent or broekn, but next time its out im gonna check out the clutch spring, cause when it was out of the car and i moved it the throw out bearing would come out, but then i would have to pull the clutch leaver back by hand to set it back into place, is that right or should it do it by itself?

As you can guess this is hard to figure out when its not in front of you to look at.

I only worked on my 97 GA16, not the SR20 yet and this was last spring.
biggest problem when apart was the TOB retaining clips bent taking the old TOB off.
Had to buy new Nissan parts otherwise it kept coming off the clutch actuating arm

Other have reported Arm welds breaking, brackets bending, Clutch fork Arm attachment to the shaft not holding ( don't know how this is done now) and fork bent.

Since mine was all working ok i ignored the clutch arm and fork so cant tell you much except to check the welds and the attachment of the fork.
I think someone even had a broken actuating shaft in the case.

Of course some of these guys were running very non stock stuff !!!
I assume you checked the clutch cable at both ends ?

yes there is a spring on the arm to return it, its not very strong, just keeps the TOB off the Diaphragm spring fingers.

yes, pull the arm towards the firewall and the end of the cable towards the front of the car, there should be a .1 to 1/4 inch gap
