Re: Clutch

clutch petal feel as it always has? Cable may be stretched perhaps? OEM cable or aftermarket?

Look under the car is the cable pulling the fork arm? may have to remove the dust cover where the clutch cable goes into the trans to see that.

Or it could be your throw out bearing. When mine went out, it did the same thing.

There is no spring for the fork. The fingers may be worn on your clutch, but it sounds more like it's not adjusted right.

Or the fork isn't clipped to the pivot ball in the bellhousing.

I would try adjusting the cable till the clutch engages about 2 1/2inches off the floor....also I would see about changing the clutch quadrant if it the original plastic one!..

The clutch is not fully disengaging.

The fingers on the pressure plate could very well be weak or bent, making it difficult or impossible to disengage the clutch completely.

i would still try playing with adjustment first.to tight or to loose would cause the clutch to not disengage.
