[DML] Re: Trans problem-violent shake

Rob-new or reconditioned?-you tell me, I got the clutch disc from you
(along with other misc. transmission gaskets/parts) and I'm not quite
sure if it was new or reconditioned. I bought and installed a new disc
and pressure plate a little over a year ago. The disc would still be
in there but when my transmission leaked the oil all over the disc,
there was no point in replacing a new pressure plate so I just put in
the new disc from you (Rob). My questions is-why is this suddenly
happening? Why not last month, or the month before (I didn't JUST put
the clutch in and it's just suddenly happening after the work) why
isn't it happening in reverse or second gear and why is my pedal
height the same... These were all reasons I didn't think of the clutch
as a problem. Can a reconditioned clutch have such a short life? I'd
understand if I was racing around burning the clutch all the time
(even then it should last a long time) but that's hardly the case for
me-the hardest it's seens is now when I have to start in second
instead of first. My flywheel seems to be fine, not worn and had no
scoring so I didn't se a reason to get it cut. -----dani
