What car did the flywheel come off...?
Also on new Components, did you order it for the car the flywheel came off....?
I Turned my Ea-82 Flywheel for the Beast, and Ordered a PressurePlate for a turbo, but friction disc for a Non Turbo, and the difference in Tolerances was about .0008 But it made just enough drag, that Clutch wouldn't disengage......
I fought this issue for over a week, and had the motor and Flywheel out 6 times Before I figured out I had to order Complete kit for what Ever car the Flywheel came from....Due to the fact that the Machine shop turned it to that year of car's spec's.....
Hope this helps......

Can't you measure how far the RX clutch fork moves and compare it to the wagon?
This will atleast take pedal /fork travel out of the equation

Skip: Yes, brand new pilot. I'll see about the fork travel.
McBrat: It was turned properly. Skips flywheel (on the RX) was turned more than the GL-10's was, and the RX still disengages like its a hydr. clutch.
Soobadooba: Ummm... could you simplify that? Or do you mean the trans input shaft is rubbing on the crank, cuz its in too far or something like that? (its late here)
For comparrison: The RX, and any other factory 5spd acts like so: free play, pedal gets hard, harder, softer, to floor. The wagon...Constant...but the closer to the floor, it ever so slightly gets harder.
WTF? any more suggestions? That way ive got a hoard load to experiment with tomorrow...if its not all iced up, and cold as frick.

The only time it shift correctly, meaning the clutch seems to disengage properly, is when its all cold. But when everything gets warm...like in city stop and go driving, it gets really really hard to shift. But still, the pedal doesnt feel like any other factory 5spd, so there is some kind of problem.

I am also noticing at least two different types of release levers/forks/bearings and each is significantly different from the other. I don't know if it is possible to interchange these since I haven't tried, but if the wrong one was in there, I can imagine it could cause something like this.
It appears that the ball stud is threaded. I have to wonder if this were to be adjusted out further (closer to the pressure plate) would it help push the bearing into the pressure plate further? Again, I haven't tried this, but it might be something to try if all else fails.
As far as the heat issue, I can only guess the expansion of components worsens the already marginal operation of the clutch.
I hope enough of this makes sense that it might at least give you some ideas that will help you troubleshoot. More experienced posters may be able to shoot holes in any or all of these thoughts in short order. I've worked on a lot of clutches, but have little Subaru experience-especially on a retrofit. In the meantime, I will try to come up with more hairbrained ideas on what might be wrong.
Good Luck and Stay Warm

Theres no more time left to really mess with this thing before i leave...I will archive this topic, and first thing I will do when i get back is fix this thing.
tailgatewagon: The throwout brg is in correctly, and is correct. Seems there are only two avail...2wd and a 4wd. All 4wd, turbo or not, seem to be the same in all dimensions. 2wd are quite a bit smaller.
