clutch problem (update)
i asked this board a couple of days ago if anyone had any ideas as to why my bro's zuk was eating clutch cables. after adjusting a new clutch cable several times, the clutch would still not disengage. all of this was done in the dark outside.
now for the update..
i thought about what could be wrong and figured that the release bearing was getting hung up on the tranny input shaft which was suggested by dparker. so today in the daylight i went out prepared to pulll the tranny once again and low and behold the problem was discovered as i started disassembling the thing, the motor-to-tranny bolts were very loose and the top drivers side one was completely gone! i put in two new bolts for the top and two new nuts for the bottom and torqued it all tight. now it drives great again. thanks again for all the suggestions and especially dparker who sent me in the right direction.
