MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Cannot select gears clutch??
|My midget 1500 has been stored up all winter, started her up but cannot get it into any gear cold or hot,,, clutch is having no effect also. What do you think, gearbox seized or clutch ??? Wondering where to start|
|You will find the clutch plate has probably siezed to the pressure plate.|
This can very often be released by simply placing the car in gear, putting the clutch to the floor and turning the starter. Make sure you have plenty of room in front of the car and also it is a good plan to disable the ignition circuit. (remove the rotor arm or remove the wire on the coil.)
If this does not clear the problem get back to this forum
