MGB Clutch Problem??

Every time I push in the clutch on my 1980 MGB I feel a kind of circular kind of pulsating on my foot. I replaced the clutch and the throw out bearing last year. Is this something to be concerned about? Will the clutch go again?

Can you hear bearing noise? if yes the bearing is factory defect, if not, then your clutch diaphragm is the factory defect one. it might go again specially if it's got a crack starting.

The problem with the MG clutches is they use a carbon thrust washer instead of a conventional bearing, they wear out very quick if the clutch adjustment is wrong or the driver rests their foot on the clutch and never hold the car on the clutch at lights the carbon will be dust! Usually the clutches should be coil sprung not diaphram, these can be upset by rough fitting.

If the clutch is not disengaging when you put your foot on the clutch ( if the system has been bled correctly or cable fitted correctly ) then the problem is that the clutch plate is in the wrong way round and the clutch hub with the springs is hitting on the flywheel bolts

Clutch wont disengage when I push the clutch

do you feel normal pressure under your foot. it can be a couple of thing. check if the master cylinder has fluid in it .check for fluid inside the cab high up on the clutch pedal.then the master is leaking.but most common would be the slave cylinder on the side of the transmission.peel back the dust cover if fluid leaks out replace.

Stuck clutch

does this one still uses cable or hydrovac already?
if still on cable, then you will need to remove your transmission and loosen your gearbox.
if on hydrovac, replace clutch master/slave first.

Hi,. there is a problem with my clutch. it was working fine when i drove around but now when i tried to push the clutch down to take it into first gear it wont go all the way down therefore not letting me...

can you select gears with motor not running? ie dont need to use clutch to do this.
Is foot leaver jamming inside the car?
is clutch arm (or slave cyl) at bell housing jamming.
If above ok then looks like motor and clutch out time.

Clutch suddenly has no resistance and car won't shift gears. Fluids were low, have put fluid in the reservoir but still doesn't work. How do you bleed a clutch line?

on the transmission there is a slave cylinder that works like a brake cylinder, when you apply pressure to the clutch pedal a rod inside the vehicle under the dash pushes into a clutch master cylinder, (almost like a brake master cylinder without the reservoir, as the clutch master cylinder works off the brake master cylinders reservoir) the plunger in the clutch master cylinder applies fluid pressure to the slave cylinder,(located down on the trans near the clutch fork assembly) which projects a piston rod into the clutch fork dis-engaging the clutch. To bleed the clutch slave cylinder locate the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder,break loose so it loosens and tightens easily. Check fluid in brake master cylinder reservoir,fill if needed, while bleeder on the slave cyl is closed have a helper push clutch pedal to floor and back 7-8 times, (At first the clutch might stay at the floor, just pull it up by hand or foot and continue) after several pumps with no rest time push pedal to the floor and hold down with foot pressure, at this time loosen the bleeder on slave untill fluid leaks out, watch for air bubbles, close bleeder and repeat untill there is no sign of air bubbles, (make sure to check fluid in the brake master cylinder and keep fill as needed, do not let fluid get less than 1/2 empty as it might **** air and you will have to start over) If this does not bring clutch to operate then you need to check if slave cylinder is reachig its full extension of push rod or not. If it is not then you will have to replace the clutch master cyl or the clutch slave cyl or both as seals are bad and wont hold pressure. Or you need to inspect the clutch fork,the throw-out bearing, or the pressure plate fingers and clutch plate for failure or broken bent parts. I hope it turns out to be a easy fix on that clutching thing.

So... are you ready for my clutch question? I had the clutch on my 5 speed 2001 Elantra replaced with new components. The clutch would vibrate or pulsate at the pedal when depressing it. Also a clicking...

So, are you ready for some help with your clutch problem? I will give rhe shop the benefit of doubt and assume they didn't check everything..They did the simple process of parts replacement which it will never be known whether or not you even needed a clutch.. Should we continue?
