Clutch fork
« on: 15:16, Fri 22 April 2011 »
Is it possible for the clutch fork to fall out of the bearing because my clutch wont disengage and the forks flapping around like a flag in the wind?

It is possible if the bearing locating lugs have snapped off.

Pull the cover off & get a torch in there, the only reason I cn think it to be flapping about is the one MArk says, the lugs have snapped, unless you have managed to knock it right over & it's just popped off the lugs...

Well I got a torch in there and the teeth were fine all I could figure out
Was maybe it had somthing to do with the pivot bush being worn out completely ?

But cracked all the gear box putting it all back together so she's undrivable

was the fork put on the pivot properly?

 there is a piece of metal on the back of the fork which holds it on the pivot

There Is no sort of Clip or any thing of any sort on the clutch fork
Mate I tried to look at a clutch fork on the net but couldn't find one

Nice one fordy nope mines not got that nor has it ever had that
All I can think is that my pivot bush is shot and it's not letting the fork pivot anouth
It starts to pivot too fat back if you understand what I mean
The clutch fork is coming all the way back and it's hardly pushing the clutch

is the cable slack? maybe the clutch pedal mech has broken? it would explain the flapping about fork
