It feels to me like the clutch is not fully disengaging. To be honest it feels like the syncros are going out-but i doubt all of them would go out at the same time. Does anyone know how to adjust the clutch?
I'd post in the transmission forum but they are never any help...just like the search function

Re: clutch adjustment (jefswat)

It appears that i have air in the lines instead and am slightly low on hydralic fluid. Where did it go and how did a bubble get in I ask myself
darn bubbles...I sense a problem

Re: clutch adjustment (.SLEEPYDUB.)

I was actually hopeing that it was in the brake lines. Upon closer inspection it looks like the brake fluid has dropped below the level of the supply line for the clutch. Personal that makes it seem like the leak is in the brakes somewhere (i hope). I would have noticed it earlier but i couldn't see the brake fluid through the resivor to tell how high it was. i went out there with a tape measure today about all i could tell was that the fluid was past the low mark

As the brakes wear the fluid level go down because the brake pistons rest farther and farther out of the caliper as the pad material gets worn away. Your brakes could just need to be done soon or you haven't checked on the fluid level for a while. Check for leaks but just add fluid and bleed the clutch and brakes to make sure the air is out and you should be good.

Maybe... or maybe it was the leprechauns.

The bleeder is just in front of the shifter linkage. You'll see a line under it running to the trnamission case. Pretty easy to find if you know the general area.

Re: (apstguy)

Anyone know what diameter of hose Id need to bleed it?
Edit: 3/16 inner diameter hose worked nicely

Re: (jefswat)

Ok...that didn't solve my problem...anyone have any other thoughts as to why my clutch isn't fully disengageing other than air bubbles in the lines or the slave cylinder. Someone mentioned a release arm or something-what that and how would i go about checking it?
