Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Mighty Max

1 Answer

I need to adjust the clutch on a 1995 standard mighty max mitsubishi I changed the clutch disc, pilot bearing, throw-out bearing and pressure plate, but the clutch stays against the fly wheel when running in neutral and will not allow it to go in any gear. the cable is moving the throw-out bearing fork and to me the fork seems to be to easy to move back and forward. also the clutch cable(although moving the fork) is not in very good shape and needs replacing I'm ruling it out as the sole problem i need adjustment instructions thank you.

You will need to turn the cable adjuster so there is only about 1/8 inch of free travel of the cable where it attaches to throw out fork before it starts to move the fork. Once the throw out bearing is achieving its full travel the clutch should release and enable gear selection.

    I missed one minor step at the beginning of the adjustment procedure that may not be obvious to some people. It goes like this.
    First move the end of the fork, where the cable attaches, so that the throw out bearing is touching the fingers of the diapraghm spring or the operating levers of the pressure plate. Then screw the cable adjuster until the free travel of the cable is around 1/8 to 1/4 inch or 3 to 5 millimeters. You may have to increase free travel slightly if clutch engagement occurs when pedal is more than halfway out.
    Also recheck free travel after a week or two of driving as the clutch will wear in slightly and reduce free travel. Thereafter, depending on usage, recheck free travel around 6 to 12 months or if the engagement point on the pedal changes considerably.

Usually the pressure plate, clutch disc, throw out bearing, and pilot bearing are what is replaced. Usually a clutch kit from auto parts stores include all of this in the same box.

Do you mean you can't get the clutch to DISengage? You need the clutch to disengage - 'unlock' the transmission input shaft from the flywheel - in order to change gears.
If you put the transmission in 1st gear and start the engine and the truck starts moving with the pedal depressed, the clutch IS engaged. I think you mean that you can't get it to disengage so you can stop without killing the engine, and can change gears without a lot of grinding.
If this is the case, check to see that the clutch cable or linkage (if you have mechanical linkage) is properly adjusted, or that you hydraulic lines and slave cylinder are bled if you have a hydraulically controlled clutch.

How to install a clutch kit on my 1994 mitsubishi mighty max


Disconnect the battery, disconnect the Hydraulic Line from the Slave Cylinder, Remove the Starter (2 bolts, 2 wires. Bolts are 14mm, 1 wire is 12mm, 1 plugs in), Remove the Driveshaft(s) (4 12mm bolts) Remove the 6 bolts from the bellhousing (4 are 14mm, 2 are 10mm)
Remove the bolt from the Transfer Case Mount, 12mm (only if it's a 4WD, if it's 2WD this doesn't apply), remove the 2 bolts that hold the Transmission Mount to the Crossmember (12mm or 14mm, it varies)
Slide the transmission back on the crossmember, away from the engine, I recommend running a ratchet strap across the frame to balance the transmission.
Remove the Pressure Plate from the Flywheel (Six 10mm bolts), Inspect the Pilot Bearing (if it needs replaced, you'll need to remove the Flywheel which is held on with six 18mm bolts, drive out the old bearing and drive in the new one, reinstall the flywheel, using Threadlocker on the bolts, torque the bolts to 100 ft lbs) Install the new clutch disc and Pressure Plate, with the centering tool inserted through the disc into the pilot bearing. Use thread locker on the pressure plate bolts and torque them to 20 ft lbs. Remove the centering/alignment tool after you've bolted it together
Remove old Throw Out bearing from input shaft on the transmission and slide the new one on. Slide the Transmission forward (make sure the input shaft slides into the pilot bearing, don't force the transmission into place or you could damage the clutch disc or break the input shaft) Torque the Bellhousing Bolts to 40 ft lbs (4 14mm bolts), Torque the 2 10mm bolts to 14 ft lbs, Install the Starter (torque bolts to 23 ft lbs), Reconnect Hydraulic Line to Slave Cylinder. Torque Transmission Mount Bolts to 30 ft lbs.
Reinstall Driveshafts, torque bolts on flange/yoke to 40 ft lbs. Fill Clutch Master Cylinder with DOT-3 Brake & Clutch Fluid, Open Bleeder Screw on Slave Cylinder and bleed the air out of the system, close bleeder screw.
Reconnect the wires to the Starter, Reconnect the battery.

Yes it is time to install a new clutch kit(clutch disc,pressure plate ,throw out bearing and pilot bearing)also have the flywheel resurfaced.The disc has gotten too thin to be clamped by the pressure plate.Best if you replace everything at once with new parts,avoid rebuilt parts.Good luck!

if it has a cable for clutch you need to adjust it. if its hydralic then the master cylinder may be not bleeding off properly when cold or slave sticks when cold. you need to measure pedal free play that is how far pedal goes down before resistance is felt there needs to be 1/2 to 1 inch or so free play to make sure that the release bearing isnt riding on the pressure plate [would be the same as riding the clutch] the 1/2 inch higher than brake pedal probem can be adjusted on the pedal stop but shouldnt be the problem. of course the clutch could be just plain worn out to.
