Frozen clutch

Rate this Entry
any ideas on how to free up a frozen (stuck) clutch without removing the transmission & bell housing?

    Jack up the rear end so both rear tires are off the ground. Start engine in high gear. Push in clutch and slam on the brakes.

    I thought I had that problem on my 41... It turned out that we needed to modify the clutch adjustment coupler for more travel. Clutch works fine now....

    The first time I had that happen I pulled the transmission and disassembled the clutch, which was a pain because it had a scatter shield with lots of bolts on it. The second time I just put the car in neutral, fired the engine and then depressed the clutch and it released, in my case I think it was just a tad bit of rust that caused the problem, hopefully that is your issue also.
