  • I have noticed lately that when I am running along and depress the clutch pedal that it seems to take a couple of seconds before the clutch disengages. Any ideas? David

  • Plan on fixing the (probable) oil leak... Does it drip a bit from the Dry Bay with the cotter pin sticking out of the bottom?? If you're fortunate, it will need only the front seal at the transmission...

  • Block down clutch when parked overnight

  • As Dean said I agree it is probably oil causing the clutch to stick. Use caution when parking for any length of time. You'll find a severely stuck clutch. Either block the clutch pedal down or strap it down to avoid that from happening.

  • Sounds like oil or grease on the clutch causing sticking.

  • Thanks guys. I surely do not want to be changing the clutch. I will block the clutch pedal and see how that goes. It is not dripping at that hole with the cotter pin. Thanks for the advise. Dave
