Clutch wont disengage
Shortly after purchase i needed a new clutch so I
bought a clutch kit and surprisingly a friend and I
Swapping the clutch disc and pressure plate. I
didn't replace/resurface my flywheel cus wear was
minimal, neither the pullout bearing cus tool I
rented was to big and was looked ok. slave
cylinder+throwout bearing are inseparable and
inside the bell houseing... the throw out bearing
looked burnt with rust and hardly moved when i
tried spinning it. Instead of stoping to wait until i
could replace the part i just put the tranny back on.
I also learned my clutch pedal had been soft since i
bought it extremely soft, I assumed all clutchs had
a unique feel and never rhought twice of it. Found a
leak in the master cylinder so im replacing the
whole thing tomorrow. Also stick shifts when
Whats all reasons clutch wont disengage/shift?
The clutch disc goes springs facing pressure plate
and flat side facing fly wheel right?
Thanks for all or Any input/advice/help
You should have resurfaced the flywheel, this will elemanate any chance of clutch chatter, and the pilot bushing can bind on the input shaft causing it to spin and making gear change really hard even with the clutch released, and you have waited right at the throw out bearing spot and replaced the clutch slave cylinder unit at the same time, if you check with most any shop they will tell you to replace them, or you will be in the spot your in right now. So bite the bullet, remove the tranny replace the salve cylinder assembly and while your back in there better resurface the flywheel and replace the pilot bushing, if the job is worth doing then do it right, short cutting it will only cause grief as you are now finding out.
