    Default Clutch Fork Question

    Okay...I just put my new MTX in, and something is really, really bugging me.

    The fork that engages from the slave cylinder...is in the position it would be in to engage the clutch. I have to manually move it the other way (clutch disengage). It moves that way...but I have to move it myself.

    What's the issue there? Where did I fuck up...because I don't think that's good.

    There isn't fluid in the system yet.

    As of right now....it's sitting in the position as if the pedal was being pressed....and the clutch being engaged.

    I have to manually move it the other way.

    No....the fluid would make it go the other way.

    Right now I need it to return to the left....away from the pressure plate. The slave cylinder actuator pushes it the way that it's already at.

    Basically it's beign a cock.

    So, you can push the lever towards the driver side by hand? How far can you push it?

    I can push it towards the passenger side by hand. It's resting on the driver's side right now, and I can't move it any more in that direction by hand. I mean the end that the slave cylinder hits.

    Also, I can shift 1234_R freely, I can't get it into fifth gear.

    There is some noise when I shift, and it 100%%% sounds like the throwout bearing is moving around. This is without the clutch fluid in, so I'm doing it by hand.

    When I spin the crank, the axles don't rotate (that I can tell).

    Sounds as if you dislodged some of the clutch linkage when you installed the transaxle.
    Looks like a do over.

    there is no linkage, the fork attatches to the throw out bearing and pivots on a stud that it clips to, but yea sounds like the fork is off of the TOB

    Agree with the above...can you pull the fork forward toward the radiator a fair amount or rotate the fork around its axis to any great degree...if so, it has slip off the TB carrier, if only on one side, the fork end you see should be obviously cocked off vertical.

    Yep, you are going to be removing the transmission again. Of course, you could be over reacting if the slave cylinder doesn't have fluid in it, it won't rest against the fork on it's own and you would be able to push it towards the passenger side by hand.
