I thought my pressure plate was once Iíve taken off the clutch and it looks okay. It has got plenty of meat. The problem was was that the clutch engaged very late and it sort of grabbed right at the end of the pedal play. Does this mean itís just the pedal adjustment?



 The one on the right is the new one I bought

something you may want to "check" while box is out is clutch fork around pivot area on ball, may have a crack in it.

Did you try adjusting the push rod before pulling apart?  Was clutch slipping under acceleration?
If answers are yes to the first and no to the second, then it sounds more like clutch fork issue.
Very common to have a cracked fork.

Hey Ken,
No i didn't( should have). No it doesn't slip under acceleration.
Fork looks OK.
The gearbox had to come out anyway as it had a crack through the clutch mounting point.
I'll clean it up and take a better look.
Trying to find someone who may be able to weld cast otherwise replace the case assembly.

If it doesnít slip under acceleration then the clutch plate should be ok.
May be it just needed adjusting
