Clutch Assembly
« on: March 29, 2018, 10:57:44 AM »
Done a total rebuild on my 1KT engine and gearbox. Engine runs smooth, gear selection smooth BUT when I pull back the clutch lever it feels as though the clutch springs are compressing but the clutch plates don't seperate so the engine stalls when I select gear.  I did not soak the clutch plates in oil before reassembly, could they be binding?  Or any other reason?  Thanks.

I was not aware there was a dot on the basket and pressure plate on the 1kt/2ma.
No mention of lining up dots in the workshop manual,maybe applies to the 3ma.

The fibre plates only need soaking in oil before fitting IF they are NEW.
