Newbie to forum...again...was member bout 4 years ago...back from overseas assignment...gotta get er goin again. After cleaning mothballs from 87 Sam...replaced clutch and worked great for about 3 months...now no matter what I constantly have to adjust clutch. I get it just right...and suddenly its over tightened...I make one turn on the cable and its undertightened...driving me nuts.
I feel it may be the bushing on the fork shaft or something else in an alignment area. The shaft may have front to back play or something like that...dunno
Any help from you genious type is greatly appreciated...hunting season right around the corner
My instinct tells me it's probably rust, either in the cable or on the tranny shaft that the throwout bearing rides on. Either rust, or lack of grease. Have you got a spare cable you can put on it? HTH
I also replaced the clutch cable when i replaced the clutch. I've made adjustments to the nut at the end of the cable...and litteraly one turn can be too much adjustment either way. I talked to a tranny repair shop owner yesterday and he asked about the shape the clutch fingers were in when i replaced the clutch. There was some wear and some slight mis-alignment...he suggested replacing this and seeing where that takes me...any thoughts.
