1978 mini (canada)
this is my 5th mini. owner since 1990's
i'm baffled. Late last year i was drove to work. No problems at all. No issues regarding the clutch .. everything was working just fine. Went to work and when i came back i could not get it into gear after it started. Not at all. Pumped the clutch and no help at all. Got it home and put it away for the winter thinking i'll take my time to fix it. Since then i replaced the slave cylinder, bled repeatedly, did adjustments as per manuals, bought a clutch kit and installed (diaphragm, clutch plates, springs, seal).
No luck. Same problem.
when clutch pedal is depressed the arm swings and the plunger moves in, but i still can't get it into gear. It seems like everything is working as it should from the outside of the clutch, and the parts inside are mostly new now.
