For Christmas last year I got a centerforce df clutch. bought the ford throwout bearing and pilot bearing new. the clutch was new too and the guy my dad bought it from said it was new. when i got it i opened it up to look at it and then put it back in the box. this past monday gearheads opened the box up and put the clutch in. they pushed in the clutch and it went to the floor so they figured it was good to go. they bolted the tranny back in and did the long tubes and the rest of the exhaust. yesterday when i went to get the car they said that when they went for the test drive they pushed the clutch in and put the car in gear but with the clutch pressed to the floor the back wheels were turning. the guys at the shop said that out of 1000 clutch jobs this has happened a handful of times. the guys said that it is either the pressure plate or the seal is broken that surrounds the cog. Has this happened to anyone else? Also one of the guys said that normally when you buy a new clutch the clutch is bolted to the box or something like that. the bolts are also in a sealed bag that comes from the company. my clutch when i opened the box last december, the bolts were in a zip lock bag and the clutch was not bolted to the box. the guys at the shop think that if the clutch was not bolted down it could have been damaged in the shipping to the house. the damaged part was probably the pressure plate. Has this happened to yall before or have you heard of this before.
