    So I got the clutch in, everything bolted, ready to go...or so I thought. I've never done a clutch in an accord before. I tried to start it, and it started for a second then died. Then When I tried to crank it over again, the starter is just spinning, not hitting the flywheel.

    what do I need to do?

    make sure the tranny is tight to the block, make sure the starter is tight.

    okay...it is turning over.

    Just no start. Still have to see if its spark or fuel.

    any thing I could have forgotten to fasten or put on?

    have spark, and fuel pump is turning on. Cant find the schrader valve to look for line pressure.

    I had the door unlocked, while the battery was out, and put the battery back in with the door unlocked. then I opened the door, and put in the radio code.

    Did i mess with the anti-theft? Is there anything I can do?

    it acts like it wants to start.

    Check the ground wire just under the Dist. I had a friend take that off when doing his clutch and forgot to put it back on and had problems with the car running. Just a thought.

    I'll look for that, I don't recall taking one off, thus I don't remember putting one back on, so thats a possibility. thanks for the suggestion.

    this is probably a dumb suggestion but did you try to start it with the clutch pedal pressed fully down ?

    i had that exact problem on a honda cbr600 motorbike and it turned out that because the engine was worn the compression was a bit low, so the new clutch slowed the cranking speed enough for it to turn but not start !

    i always had to start it with the clutch disengaged for the first week or two till the new clutch plates had bedded in properly.

    i know the bikes is very different from the cars but its so easy its gotta be worth a try if you havent already.............

    clutch pedal has to be fully down for the clutch safety switch to allow the starter solenoid to get power.

    thanks you though.
