Question about 1997 Jeep Wrangler
I have a 97 jeep wranger that I have replaced the clutch on. After replacing the clutch I started having problems with it not going into gear. I have since replaced the Master and Slave cylinder and bleed it many many many times. But the problem still exists. Can someone please help me. THanks
Assuming what you have outlined has been done correctly, several possibilities exist: 1. You have the wrong throwout bearing installed
2. You had the flywheel resurfaced and it is now beyond the travel limit of a hydraulic actuator arrangement. 3. You have an entirely different pressure plate finger height, or a resurfaced "rebuilt" pressure plate which is again beyond specs. (or any combination of the above)
Your problem is likely to stem from this. You changed the Pilot bearing in the end of the crankshaft, correct?
Aside from taking the entire thing apart again, the only thing I can recommend is to make sure that the clutch pedal linkage and bushings are in good condition. Anything that limits clutch pedal travel should be repaired. If you have an external slave cylinder, you might want to make a new actuator rod, a bit longer than the stock one.(it would be between slave and fork if you have one at all) If you have a hydraulic throwout bearing, there is not much you can do to help without tearing it apart!
"Though hydraulic systems are great space savers, the older fully mechanical clutch arrangements gave you far more adjustment options with which to overcome problems such as you now have.
