Re: Clutch cable

Yes I’m fairly confident the clutch fork and bearing all correct and the fact it’s had 2 clutches 1st 1 was original and 1st cable was original but I’m sure that snapped definitely not fully but I did hear a ping when I pressed clutch and from then on that’s when I started to have problems. Obviousl...

Re: 2.8 clutch

Cheers guys so little update for you. So after fiddling with pedal box and making sure all nuts and bolts were tight it didn’t make a bit of difference. So I took cable off again and tried to route it behind the engine mount but it just wouldn’t fit to short. So it’s now in front. I tried to tighten...

Re: 2.8 clutch

Hi. Ye I was having problems with the original clutch and thought it was on its way out but I have had it replaced. And to be honest it’s probably worse now especially the biting point. I have been rained off today but hopefully get back to it tomorrow.

Re: 2.8 clutch

Ye it was matching clutch and 3 piece all brand new luk. I’m thinking and I’m no mechanic but could it be the pedal box being slightly out of line ? The reason I’m on this is when car was stripped down and in paint shop they removed the 2 bolts on the top plate on bulk head just above where servo is...

Re: 2.8 clutch

I never fitted it but guy who did knows his stuff it was the same problem with the clutch I took out so wouldn’t think it’s wrong way round. Clutch does work but only when adjusted right up and by that I mean not threads left where they come through the bush and bite basically on the floor. Definite...

Re: 2.8 clutch

Ye the plastic bush is in the bit at the bell housing where cable goes through. Clutch was a luk but the clutch before was original 1 hence why I thought it was possibly the clutch. Top of clutch pedal looks fine and plastic clip fits tight that holds cable on. I was reading a post that says there i...

2.8 clutch

Hi guys hope your all keeping well. I have a problem with my 2.8 clutch. I have just replaced clutch and cable and I’m struggling to get the clutch to adjust properly.

Re: Runing problem found to be WUR - my story to fix it

Warm up regulator !! sits at the front of the 2.8 acts like a choke for fuel injection. I thought mine was working perfect as it start with a higher rev and calms down after a minute or 2 just like a choke but apparently it is possible mine doing that but not turning off hence flooding the engine bu...
