Hi all,
Recently completed an engine swap from a 1275 spi to a built  metro 1275 bored to 1310 with a HIF44 on it and all the goodies.
all is well, runs flawlessly but, when it's warm it is hard to get into gear and when idling will drag a little.
Clutch slave is a pre verto as thats what I was told worked best, and has full range of movement. 
am at a loss as to why it doesn't fully disengage when hot.

There's plenty that can be wrong with the clutch.  Clutch drag is often due to a build up of many different problems from the pedal right through to the clutch plate.
