New Clutch - Still no shift ??

Ok - new clutch installed, thought it would FIX my shifting problems.

Problems occuring.. can NOT shift into any gear only "sometimes" other times it goes in smoothly.

Most of the trouble is in 1st from a dead stop, but sometimes I can't get into any gear no matter how fast I`m going,...

My slave is dripping, SLOWLY but not TONS of leaking, and the peddle isn't mushy.. this will be replaced but could it be the problem?


I here others have this problem with their AX-15s as well?

Someone shed some light on the subject!! HELP!!!

Thanks
-Todd

Re: New Clutch - Still no shift ??

I have had three clutches in the past three months, partially due to a bad mechanic, but check behind your pedal against the firewall inside the cab. My master cylinder was lieakign all over but inside the cab, i ahd this fixed and it is almsot toally back to normal, still some problems but nothing like before.

Re: New Clutch - Still no shift ??

What exactly am I checking for inside the cab behind the clutch pedal [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

My master cyl. Is dripping onto the floor, but only 1-2 drops a day/night. May be more I guess since Its hitting the mufler first..

Hard to even grind em` its like THEY DONT WANT to go in. Seems i`ll break off the damn shifter if I push any harder (sometimes)...

Could the slave cyl. be causing this ruccus!

In regard to the slow drip, mien was doing the same, but it adds up you know? Obviously it might be different with yours, but slow drip or not, once i got the fixed, the problem pretty much went away. It worth taking a look at.

Re: New Clutch - Still no shift ??

Ya, I check the fluid level regularly though! I`ve hadit STOP working cuz fluid went low! Since then really it's had issues.. so maybe I did RUIN all my syncrhos!!! But really I didn't use 5th, so I don't know why 5th is impossible to get into as well.. hrm.

Did you have an External Slave Cyl or Internal? If external how much $ did it cost - you remember? I hope Napa is open tomorrow!

I`m heading to the Con on Monday! Eeeek need it fixed

Re: New Clutch - Still no shift ??

My first impression is that the hydraulic system isn't properly bled. I had the same problem each time I've worked on mine. I run a CJ external slave cylinder and CJ master cylinder with a SBC and SM465.

I've read two different methods to bleeding my type of system. One way never worked, the other always did. I've always had to unbolt the slave cylinder and angle it at 45 degrees for the bleeding process.

Not real sure that's your problem, but figured I'd throw it out there.

Re: New Clutch - Still no shift ??

When we put the new tranny in general420's CJ we had problems with his hydraulic clutch. Slightly diffrent from yours but my point is this. It appeared to be working somewhat, could get the tranny into gear with the engine off, but after it started no luck with any gear. (Worked fine prior to tranny swap) Very slight wetness around the master under the dash.

Took thing apart to kit it. Went to a local guy who had much more experience with these. He honed it out and showed us a spot inside almost invisible to my naked eye. He recommended replacement. Anyway, put the kit in and the problem was cured for a couple of months. Then back to not shifting well at all. Replaced whole MC and it has been running fine ever since.

Re: New Clutch - Still no shift ??

Do you have the steps to the bleeding process that DID work?
