Watch what happens to the clutch linkage as the pedal is pressed by someone else. Could even be a dry bearing on the clutch pedal up under the dash. Does it squeak anywhere? You should have about 1 to 1-1/2 inch of free play at the pedal before it starts to take up the clutch. If this a hydraulic system, forget most of the above except for the free play and dry bearing.

62 ford fairlane 500 ..221 V-8 been sitting for 25 years. Clutch won't disengage. Any easy way to free up, short of pulling tranny?

Tom, If equipped with a inspection shield or maybe with starter removed through hole, remove shield and try prying between pressure plate and disc. On some old tractors they would pull the spark plugs and tow the tractor around in 3rd gear until clutch released.
Plan A: If you are car is pointed so you can lurch forward without hitting some object.
Step 1. Start engine in neutral and let it warm up thoroughly.
Step 2. Shut the car off and restart it with the car in first gear and your foot on the clutch pedal.
Step 3. Keep clutch depressed with left foot and blip the accelerator with right foot.
Step 4. Repeat as often as necessary to free up the clutch and then go for a drive. Let the clutch slip, so you can burn off the stuff on your clutch disc.

Plan B: If your car is in the garage, pointing at a brick wall.
Step 1. Secure the car, so it can't roll forward and hit that wall. Jack up the rear of the car (use the differential "pumpkin" as the jacking point). Support the car so that the rear wheels are up in the air and can spin freely.
Step 2. Start engine in neutral and let it warm up thoroughly.
Step 3. Shut off the engine, put transmission in either 3rd or 4th gear.
Step 4. Start the car again with your foot depressing the clutch pedal
Step 5. Rev the engine and hit the brakes.
Step 6. Repeat as often as necessary to free up the clutch and then go for a drive. Let the clutch slip, so you can burn off the stuff on your clutch disc.
Plan C: if all fails...get credit card, order new clutch, (preferably from us) start pulling out the interior and remove the transmission. If you have a BJ8, you should replace the pressure plate as well as the disc. In any case, spend the extra $5 for a spigot bush while you are doing the clutch job.
To prevent this from happening in the future, take your Healey for an outing ever so often. It is good for the car to stretch its legs from time to time. You can also try the trick of putting a stick on the clutch pedal so it is constantly depressed, but it is not a 100% surefire method.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My 1990 hyundai excel has been sitting for 3 years. It started fine, but the hydrolic clutch pedal seems to be stuck in the up position. I don't recall having problems with the clutch when I was...

Add brake fluid to the reservoir and try pumping the pedal by hand it may get stuck to the floor, then look for any leaks in the line to the tranny, if it is stuck up try starting it in gear and shut it off immediately! Cuz it will try and take off be sure to block the wheels and set the brake, this may help free the slave cylinder from the shaft please rate

The vehicle wont go into gear. It goes into the gears without having to step on the clutch but the vehicle wont move. Where do i begin

First you need to check if your clutch is moving. Does the pedal move freely and easily, or is there resistance? Second, does the throw out bearing arm move with the clutch pedal and cable or, when you move the pedal, is the arm sticking out of the transmission stuck in the pushed in position? If there is no resistance and the arm is not moving, you may have a frozen cable - there's little in the transmission to cause this problem since you stated you can shift into the gears.. You'll need a helper to push the clutch pedal as you push and pull on that arm. That arm will have either a cable or a small cylinder attached to it - I believe you'll find a cable. If that cable ( which is connected to the clutch pedal ) won't move then there's your problem. You may be able to lubricate it for a temporary fix but ultimately you need to replace it. If the cable moves fine as well as that arm then you probably have a broken disc in your clutch and will need to have it replaced. Unfortunately there is no quick fix if the cable moves. If it doesn't and you don't have any lubricating spray, get some oil from your kitchen and pour some on the end of the cable at the tranny and try moving that arm back and forth - you may need a screwdriver or other tool as an extension to help.
Good luck!!

Clutch will not engage.

You have to bleed the system again they can be a pain in the b@TT, also get a second person to operate the clutch and watch to see if the lever moves, if it does pull off the rubber and make sure you have the Y on the pivot ball inside the transmission. And if you don't get enough throw adjust the clutch rod on the clutch pedal by removing the pin and loosen the lock nut and make it longer by unscrewing the shaft. You want a half inch of free play at the top of the pedal the you want the clutch to catch about 3/4 of the way down. Also if you try to put it in gear does it grind the gears? Also did you put the clutch plate in backwards this is a common mistake even for a pro who gets interrupted by a phone call or a good-looking gal walking by, if ya need more suggestions let me know by posting to this comment.

Crx cable clutch problem

The clutch assy. is worn out. When a clutch is new the springs on the pressure plate sit flat. When you push on the clutch the springs don't have to move far to disengage, making it easy to press on the clutch pedal. As the clutch wears the fingers of the clutch spring move out, clutch pedal effort and travel increases to the point that the clutch will not disengage anymore. Along the life of the clutch the cable can be adjusted to minimize this. You have reached the end of the adjustment, sorry for the bad news but the clutch needs to be replaced.

Clutch pedal stuck to the floor

hi, there is one place you should check. but answer this first, did you swap the car with a new engine or did you pull the engine out of the car? if the anwser is "yes" then you'll probably twist a fluid tube for the clutch at the tranny. so check the front end of the tranny, it should be a short metal wire (tube like) that should be connection to the tranny. the bolt size is 8mm. so find that tube and open the line. then ask someone to pump the clutch pedal 3 or 4 time and stop while holding it down. yes! the clutch fluid should be coming out while he's doing that. so now when he's press down the last pump, you should twist it back on. repeat it, over and over until you get it to harden again. you should also open the clutch master cylinter, too and refill some more... well hope this help...

Need step by step on how to bleed hydrolic clutch on a 1996 ford ranger

First remove the clutch reservoir top. Make sure the rubber stopper/bladder is in the cap when removed. Next locate the clutch line that goes into the tranny just aft of the bell housing. There should be a bleed screw, if so open it slightly. If no screw, than loosen the line where it attatches in. Next fill the clutch reservoir and watch till it leaks out on the tranny end. Once thats noticed, close the screw/line and recap reservoir. pump clutch pedal, and repeat bleed steps at least once more to ensure all air is out. remember to fill clutch fluid up to operating levels.
