    Axles Move While Transmission is in Neutral

    We are in the final stages of getting this turbo 420A on the road. We noticed when we started the motor that the axles turn when we start it. We put in a brand new SPEC Stage II clutch and a new master cylinder. We didn't replace the slave and nothing is leaking. We were also low on transaxle fluid (very low) but refilled it as well. Obviously the clutch is not disengaging. Is there some adjustment or something else that we should check?

    If its out of gear and the wheels are off the ground then thats normal for them to rotate a bit slowly. If its on the ground and when the shifter is in nuetral the car moves when you crank it you have a serious trans issue.

    Did you bleed your clutch? Maybe the clutch pedal is sticking to the floor because there is air in the system?

    Yep, if the trans is in N the wheels can turn due to the fluid and bearings.

    When the car is in neutral with the clutch pedal out the clutch is still fully engaged. Your axles moving has nothing to do with the adjustment of the clutch.
