On a good note, I saw a EA82 Turbowagon on 6200 south in Salt Lake, had a messed up door, but looked good other than that. And last time I was here back in March, I saw a camoflage EA81 hatchback in the Jordan's Landing shopping center, next to Wal Mart... I dunno who's it was, but they took off before I could evangelize teh board :-P Oh well, they should have it fixed by the time I get back... which will be soon cuz I've had about enough Mormonism to last me for the rest of the year :-P

It must be possible to pull the pedal in his upper position by pulling the end of the cable where it's connected to the fork under the hood. The free play you became now on the cable must be reduced by the adjusting nut untill the pedal still in the right position. If the clutch (disc and plate) are OK it should work now.
If they are the cause it will be impossible to press the pedal down unless you brake the cable.

it sounds like your DL donor car was missing the spring outright.

Both cables are the same length. The one from the car that is bad, doesn't move very much, and is really hard to move by hand. The one that went into the car feels like it's brand new, and looks like it's in great condition to boot.
If say, the springs whatever weren't on right, and you pulled the clutch forward or pushed it back, at least it would move like it's supposed to... right? Well, it won't change gears if the car is on, if the pedal is pressed... so it's likely it's NOT a spring or something. We got it in there the same way it was installed before.
The donor car did not have the spring setup, but the turbowag had an extra bracket, looks factory enough.
this thing was a bitch to work on. Upside down in the foot compartment of the car, with a halogen spotlight frying your rump roast behind you in the car... in hot weather.... and your hands hurt... and things were frustrating.
But I eventually got the pedal on right. Russ did most the work, but when it came to the part where you put the screws throught he clutch cable and into the car's bracket to hold it in place, I had to do it... and it sucked.
I sure hope if he goes with putting the RX tranny in, he goes for a centriforce clutch kit. yeah... that's what I'll do when I get my credit card, it'll be my ONLY purchase until I have it payed off. I'll pay a little at a time to start getting credit, ya know...?

Also, disconnect the clutch cable from the tranny and see if it still does as you describe. That will tell you if it is in the tranny or in the pedal.

Not likely though.
When the T.O. gets stuck you usually can't engage because it goes too far and gets stuck on the input shaft.
Maybe the T.O. arm is bent because of excessive use on a worn clutch. Those are steel though, so again not likely.
Let us know what happens.

The problem isn't that the pedal sticks, sure, it does... but when it does stick, you STILL cannot change gears.
