Clutch slow to engage ???????
Posted 15 March 2004 - 09:06 AM
I need reassurance or advice on the clutch though, it takes a good few seconds to engage after the pedal is released as the lever slowly moves back. I’ve rebuilt both the master and the slave cylinders so could it be the new seals dragging? I’ve also put two return springs from the release lever to the slave cylinder but its not helping that much.
Anyone else come across this problem?

disconnect the slave cylinder from the car and if you can )you may need a big bar) operate teh clutch lever and feel how much force is produced when the lever is released, if it tries to break your rists, then you need a new slave cylinder.
mine was rusted inside so it kept sticking..

It turned out to be down to the rubber hose! Now I've replaced that the clutch seems to operate fine (yet to rive it though)
Seems an old rubber hose swells up narrowing the hole through it and causing it to resist the fluid flowing back!

You can sometimes tell if it has by psessing either the pedals and see if the other one moves.

its a nice feeling to drive a car that you love which has just been stood up for a bit, when you driven her down the road it gives me the kick up the arse to take her out more often
Managed to actually drive my hornet at the weekend!
