replaced slave cyl for clutch, bench bled master. on reinstall of shifter, asst. somehow managed to get the internal trans mechanism off / uncentered at linkage point where shifter pegs into. pulled shifter off, flipped internal parts back to normal, ran fine. now trans is acting like its dragging or otherwise not right. no idea how it could have been damaged or misaligned inside.

So, you replaced the internal clutch slave cylinder? Did you properly bleed the system? If not, this is very, very important. Other wise the clutch will not disengage and will cause that dragging feeling that you mentioned.
