Shifting M40 444-544

Hi All,

I would appreciate your thoughts on this.

The transmission was getting very hard to put into first gear and would not shift into reverse with the engine running. I'm pretty sure it is time for a new clutch. But now, all of a sudden, it is back to normal shifting. What do you think that is all about.

Thanks Bob

    The friction disc can hang up on the input shaft due to rust and crud, and then begin moving again. It has to slide as the pressure plate releases. It's not uncommon. Any time a clutch is replaced the shaft has to be cleaned and the splines lubricated sparingly to prevent this.
    Probably the clutch assembly is old, but if it doesn't stick again, and there are no other symptoms, keep driving it.

    There's no logical reason why you've experienced those symptoms. Although there has been occasion when my car is pointing down a steep slope and it will grind a bit when putting into reverse.

    Absolutely start with a clutch adjustment.

    But don't be surprised if that may turn into a clucth replacement.

    Hopefully you will not find that the clutch is fine but your transmission layshaft bearings have bit the dust.
