RE: [DML] clutch fix

Just had to reply to this instead of lurking.  I don't know how much use your car gets, but if it is a garage queen, it is possible for the clutch to get better by itself.  Why do I say that?  
Because if it is not used much you could end up with a clutch release bearing binding on the shaft.  This appears as a clutch slipping.  The bearing(being stuck) only allows the clutch to partially engage.
Ask me how I know that.  I just took out my transmission to replace the clutch and that is what I found.  The clutch was getting better with use but I had the parts so I decided to replace the clutch.
I replaced a perfectly good clutch and pressure plate ( I now have a spare).

Just curious is it possible that if I have a clutch that slipped after 
every 10 min trip, to possibly fix itself?

Since the gas prices went up I used my DMC instead of my Ford to use 
some of the gas. Anyway I have used the DeLorean for the past 4 days 
in stop and go traffic and it has worked perfect, I'm having a 
starting problem. But that seems to be a problem with the distrubitor.

Just curious beacuse I haven't had any problems with it in a while.

Thanks Darryl
