Got a problem with a turbo Diesel 97 Hilux ute. It now has a recon gear box and new clutch. Problem is sometimes I can put my foot down on the clutch and the car is still in gear and moving (1st, 2nd and reverse), I cannot get it out of gear. I then just turn off the motor then turn it back on and am able to get it out of gear. Any Idea?

Sounds like your clutch isn't bled correctly, causing it to not disengage from the engine.
Turning the car on/off (are you coasting when you do this?) possibly causes slack in the transmission which allows the gears to be released.
If true, the same effect can be had much easier by simultaneously pulling the gear lever toward neutral while letting off of the accelerator.
