Re: Can\'t get clutch to disengage
Years ago, after an engine rebuild on my '58 MGA, I couldn't get the clutch to disengage. Everything seemed to be right, but the clutch just would not disengage. It turned out that I had put the clutch disc in backwards and the springs, which are off center in the clutch disc, got caught between the flywheel bolt heads.
On an MGA, the tranny comes out through the passenger compartment. When you have to take one of those back apart for something like this, you never forget.
