RE: [DML] Clutch "pop" question...



Alex,

It's likely to be a broken second gear fork stop pin. It's a fifty cent item
but you'll have to pull the tranny to install it! The pin shears when
someone drives with a dragging clutch generally due to a fluid leak. Wait
until you're ready to replace the clutch before going through all this
trouble as it can be lived with for a while. We carry OEM and Centerforce
clutch's as well as a complete M.T. seal kit (Includes 2nd gear fork pin)
when you're ready to tackle this job.

Subject: [DML] Clutch "pop" question...

Hi guys,
I had a quick clutch question.  My car has a stainless steel clutch line, 
new slave and master cylinder.  The clutch however is original.

Here is the problem.  When the car is shifted into second gear it will "pop"

out of gear into neutral if my foot is off the gas.  It will stay in second 
if you apply a teeny, teeny tiny amount of pressure on the stick.  It will 
also stay if the car is accelerating.  The clutch only does this in second 
gear.  When it is running in second it runs smooth and accelerates 
flawlessly so I don't think its the transmission.  The previous owner had 
Delorean One do most of the work and Ed recomended replacing the clutch in 
the near future.  I was thinking it might have to do with a linkage problem?

  What do you think?

-Alex
