MG MGA - 5 SPEED SIERRA 9 CLUTCH SLAVE QUERY
|Finally starting to assemble the Peter Gamble 5 speed to the engine. |
All good so far, but the clutch slave arm is not aligning up to the clutch fork end.
Is there a "trick" to pulling the fork end back to allow the pin to be inserted to connect the slave to the yoke?
There doesn't appear to be much movement by the yoke arm end.
As you might have twigged, it's a newbie question.
Also, how do I tell if I have correctly inserted and bolted up the gearbox to the engine?
|Leave the rubber bellows off, then it works just fine|
| The rubber bellows/boot over the yoke arm, wont fit, the bell housing bolt is placed EXACTLY where the back part of the boot should fit, it isn't in place at the moment. I am attempting all this without the boot. Still no luck.|
|A picture would help to show your problem|
|Managed to lever the yoke arm back with a large lever, and attach the clutch slave, but the rubber boot appears to be too thin between the rubber flanges. Dark now, will attempt a pic tomorrow morning.|
|Make sure you are putting the same clutch arm into the exact same engine. I put in a "B" 1800 engine using a B clutch plate assembly, I had to get a B clutch arm and an adapter plate from Peter Gamble to repositon the clutch arm to fit correctly. What are using for an engine and what does your bell housing fit. Peter has many bell housing to fit any engine to any transmission. Let us know what happens. I havehad mine for over 11 years now and runs GREAT.|
