  • Sticky clutch
  • The clutch on my '49 8n has gotten sticky again. I have blocked it overnight but it still is sticky. I've tried some 4th gear burnouts but it hasn't cured the problem. A few years ago I removed the starter and sprayed some wd40 on the flywheel which seem to help. Any ideas on how I can fix it ?

  • I don't have a sticky clutch, but your spring idea is brilliant!

  • You sprayed oil on the clutch and now you are wondering why it's sticking?

    Spray it with brake cleaner, not WD40.
