Well good ol' Murphy's law again.
Had a great day in 85 degree weather driving around for the first time this year, until this evening. Jumped into the <nobr>Jeep
</nobr> and the clutch won't engage. Please bear with me, clutches and trannys are not an area I have worked on much.
<font color="red"> 258, D300, T5 85 Cj7 </font color> Press on the clutch which has same tension, and a thumping is heard/felt behind the clutch pedal. Seems this sound/vibration is on the other side of the firewall, and the thumping ceases whan the pedal is released. The jeep will go into gear if forced and actually will lurch strong enough to kill the engine, so I guess the pressure plate/clutch plate (?) are mating up correctly.
I just towed the jeep back by myself and pushed it into the garage, so it is a beer, and goodnight [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]. I haven't even crawled under it to inspect the linkage yet.
Any ideas what it could be? What should I look for\at first? The thumping vibration is a clue I am sure. I thought hydrolic, but I have never seen a MC under the jeep and always thought that was only on a 4cyl.
