I've just finished the process I used a Hayes manual. (best thing I ever bought to fix a car) it will take your through step by step on how to do it. There are a few quirks that you need to figure out on your own. on my 97 firebird it took me a while to figure out how to disconnect the hydraulic clutch line. Other than that it was pretty smooth.

You have a 1977 Chevy 350 out of a Chevelle and im puttin it in your 1986 firebird but the fly wheel off of your 305 and bell housing seems to be different what do you do its a 5 spd?

Answer Chevy engines are totally different from Pontiac engines. you'll need an adapter plate to fit it to a Pontiac transmission, assuming you're using the firebird tranny. check they have the adapter plates there.OK...I don't see where the Pontiac engine comes into play here. In '86 it's a Chevy engine in that Firebird. As far as I know, the flywheel from the 305 will bolt right up to the 350. Use the 305 flywheel, clutch and pressure plate and possibly the starter. Chevy had two different diameter flywheels/flexplates.

There is no clutch adjustment. The clutch is hydralic and therefore needs no adjustment. If the clutch isn't working correctly you most likely have to bleed the clutch line.

What happens when you press the clutch pedal?

(Assuming you have a hydrolic clutch system) When you push on the clutch pedal, you create hydrolic pressure in the master and slave cylinders, which in turn pushes on the release bearing (AKA throw-out bearing). The release bearing pushes on the fingers of the pressure plate. This takes pressure off of the clutch disc, putting the car in neutral, in a sense. Now you can change gears without damaging any of the transaxle gears. When you release the clutch, you put pressure back onto the clutch plate and pressure plate, which gives power back to the wheels if you are in 1st-5th gear, or reverse.

Please direct me to the cover to change the pressure plate.?

I assume you mean the clutch pressure plate. If that is what you mean there may not be a cover. On older cars and trucks there is a flywheel cover on the bottom of the bell housing. At any rate to replace the clutch pressure plate you will have to remove the transmission. Then the bell housing to gain access to the clutch plate mounting bolts.

Any ideas as to why a 1997 Geo Metro will not shift into gear with the clutch depressed and engine running it will shift into gear if the engine is not running?

The springs around the clutch plate have probably came out and locked up between the pressure plate and the clutch plate and locked them together. you need to change the clutch plate and have the pressure plate checked for damage.
