Third job done! Gently sand up the pressure plate and fly wheel areas where the clutch disc contacts. Farna mentioned using fine sand paper to clean up these areas to make them nice and smooth. While not taking off too much material, he suggested either 180 or 220, I decided to use 220, just to be extra good to the Rambler. Here are the pics....
You won't see them, but I did see tiny cracks in one spot of the fly wheel while cleaning it up with the sand paper but I'm sure those are just age cracks and nothing serious. Also, would anyone know why the springs are white colored? ( Springs of the pressure plate )

Hi everyone, I think I might have messed up the transmission by pushing it back and forth about six times getting the rambler into a different spot in behind the building I live at.
I don't think I thought to put it in neutral before I did all that pushing and pulling it wasn't a long distance but maybe 4' up then down again, and then maybe 5' back and forth again.
Now the trans shifter doesn't go through the gears like it used to.... I was wondering why while having a coffee with a freind in the rambler and just now sitting on the couch the idea came to my mind that I didn't think to put it in neutral before doing all that pushing and now I'm very worried sick I wrecked the transmission. I hope I'm wrong. 
(No engine in this rambler so transmission is disconnected with no fly wheel, clutch disc or pressure plate)
