Clutch Brake Replaced


LostSoul

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I finally got tired of grinding gears at a stop sign so I tackled my clutch brake. Why didn't I do this six months ago? Took all of two hours and three of those were because I had never done it before! Easy peasy!

Sole.......shucks you think your lazy.....I put off adjusting the clutch free play for a year or so and it only takes a 7/16 and a 5/8 wrench and 12 minutes.....top that being lazy......

Next time get a auto-$hift.....they fix themselves......

Drive on......(how lazy can today be....?)

Just curious, did you grind everytime you tried to put it in gear at a stop? if the clutch brake wasn't stopping the transaxle, how did you get in gear, just lots of grinding and it would finally go in? If I give mine a second or two at a stop to allow the transaxle to stop, I don't grind, but if I rush it then it grinds as my guess is it's still spinning. 

Glad to hear it wasn't too bad to replace.

It was difficult to get it in gear. It would grind but eventually slow down enough to get it in. It was only bad from a dead stop. Once on the road you could get to your gear of choice as you came to a stop without grinding. When I started it, after replacing the brake, and I stepped on the clutch and it slipped into gear I got this big ole smile on my face. Just as big as the one I had after I replaced the headlights!
