ok there is a way to do this. when you install a new clutch you have to install the throw out bearing to the pressure plate before you put the transmission in. there is a keeper that holds the throw out bearing to the pressure plate it goes around the wierd little ring that goes around the throw out bearing.. without this the throw out bearing just pops outta place with a few compressions of the clutch. if you cant find the keeper then just put a couple tac welds around the weird little ring welding the ring to the throw out bearing and the pressure plate. hope that helps you. i had the same problems you guys are having and i finally found the keeper that goes in there. i was like wow, how could i be so blind.

I have solved my clutch issuse...
Both the two aftermarket clutches that I bought were made incorrectly....Napa and AutoZone.
On the AutoZone clutch set the throw out berring as TOO small and would not even fit over the input shaft!
Both preasure plates have the "ring" in the center machined to large...
I put a micrometer on it and it is substantually bigger than the stock OEM clutch ring...
To solve this...I removed the ring from inside the OEM preasure plate (by bending the little tabs back) and then reinstalled it on the new Napa one....
Now the clutch works great!!!
If I was gonna do this all over again, I would just spend the extra $$$ for the stock OEM parts!
I don't suggest welding the ring on, or installing the berring on the preasure plate before install, as this can damage the fork and input shaft also...

i have a 94 trooper now and ive only had it for about 3 months or so. When i got it the clutch was fine and worked with no problems. all of a sudden it started to slip horribly after taking off from a stoplight. I got where i had to go and parked it overnight. the next day i whent ahead and left and the truck was fine, didnt slip. 2 days after it did the same thing and started to slip really bad. Now its been about a month since it started to do this and the only time the truck is fine to drive is when the motor is dead cold and hadnt been run for about overnight and this only lasts for about 30 minutes until the slipping is too bad to drive, dont like taking 0-60 in about 2 minutes. what should be the first thing that i check before going to the clutch? need help and have short about of time and money

I just went out to my vehicle to move it and it did this same thing. The pedel went to the floor, would not go into gear without turning the motor off. and then it of course wont shift from whatever gear you start out in.
I will be replacing the clutch, I have never replaced one and was wondering what I can expect, Is it difficult. How long will it take, what is the best brand that I wont have any problems with, will the tranny need to come out? and will the throwout being need replaced? any help would be apprecated.

I don't know what year your Trooper is, but I had a similar problem and found that it was nearly out of fluid in the hydraulic clutch reservoir. Have you checked that? I just needed to add brake fluid to the reservoir and it has been fine since. It took a while to get the air out, but pumping and refilling did the trick.

Didnyou have to bleed the clutch system or just keep filling it and pumping the pedel until you didnt have to add anymore. I know I sound stupid,but I'll ask anyway.
I'll try that when day light hits. I'm in the canyon at snowbird ski resort

You need to be sure to get oem parts I would suggest from Napa auto parts it has to be OEM parts or you will have to do it over and over. good luck!

I didn't have to bleed the system. That surprised me, but I just kept pumping until I had pedal pressure again. Worth a try anyhow. In my 1994 Trooper the clutch refill is low on the firewall, below the brake refill.
