differential spins in netural

Hello,

I had all clutch components replaced in my 1995 Ford Ranger M5OD dry. The problem is the driveshaft spins when it's in neutral ... does this indicate there's the throwout bearing and master cylinder isn't properly bleed cuz there is no air in the system?

Any other inputs beside just in case the clutch isn't properly bleed to be sure there's no air in the system?

Thank you! :)

The output shaft will spin if it is not connected to the rear axle.

If you mean the engine stalls when you let out the clutch in Neutral, then you are not in Neutral.
The shift forks(3 of them) need to be placed in their Neutral positions prior to installing the shifter or you won't have Neutral.

sorry for not able to reply back soon ... been busy ... here's update

I found out there was air in master cylinder that hooks up to firewall. So with a friend help we got the clip out and gently pull out the spring, pins there was not much brake fluid in that cylinder ... so we added more fluid assemble it back where there's no air in the cylinder and now it works ... the pedal press nice and sturdy not light at all
