Question: what could be wrong with my jeep ?

I replaced my T-86 trans with a T-90 trans and then went to try it out & put it in gear and it just revs up like its in neautral.. But the clutch petal is staying on the floor & i'm having to pull it back up with my foot, so I climbed underneath and looked and the fork that works the throw out bearing is barely moving when the clutch is pressed and released... So could it have something to do with the throw out bearing not being in Rt ? Any help is greatly appreciated.. Thanks

Yes it could. You will have to remove the trans and make sure the throw out bearing moves easy on the new trans. Also check all the linkage. Make sure it moves easy. Also I would make sure that the T-86 measures the same as the T-90. The front inpuit could be different.
