Shifty Shifting

Another one of Red’s “quirks” has been a clutch feel that even the word inconsistent can’t describe. I could see that the slave cylinder rod was going crooked towards then end of it’s travel, but rather than take the car apart for inspection, I just ordered new everything.

New fork, new bearing, new pivot point, etc.  These parts aren’t that expensive that it’s worth the extra down time to potentially save a few dollars.

Everything was a straight forward replacement process.  It looks like maybe the spring was just popping out of the fork, but when it comes to tearing out the transmission I would rather not take a risk.

While the clutch itself isn’t my favorite brand, it’s still in working shape, so it stays for now.

Everything went back together with out a hitch, and the Mister 2 clutch feels normal and consistent again.
