  1. Clutch Lever
    • As the clutch lever is operated over time, it gradually loses its grip on the clutch cable, weakening the clutch lever action until it barely moves the clutch plates. Maintain the clutch lever by ensuring the free play at the lever meets the specifications of the motorcycle's user manual, in which you will also find instructions on how to make this adjustment.
    Clutch Cable
    • Unlike the gradual onset of a clutch lever problem, the somewhat uncommon failure of a clutch cable is instantaneous. With little warning, the clutch lever goes completely slack and the clutch will be inoperable. Keeping a clutch cable well lubricated can prevent failure. However, in the event of a cable failure, a registered dealer should fit a replacement.

    Clutch Plates
    • Problems with the clutch mechanism itself normally manifest themselves in the gear change rather than in the applying and releasing of the clutch lever. Noise, chattering or slipping can be the result of misaligned or warped plates, leaks in hydraulic cables or bearings. Although more serious, if recognized early, these problems will be relatively inexpensive to repair.

Truck clutch was replaced at only 27329 km and had to be replaced again at 29742.Not the same driver, what could be reasons for this failure?

When the clutch was replaced was the slave cylinder also replaced? How about the throw out bearing? These are the first things I'd be looking at. When you have premature failure of these components, it comes down to the person(s) driving the vehicle or the components, in this case 2 clutches in a short amount of time plus 2 different drivers = component failure. Slave cylinder not pushing / pulling the throw out bearing enough or the bearing may be hanging on the input shaft, did you reface the flywheel or put a new one in?

Replace clutch

big job and not always necessary
as you couldn't be bothered to give any symptoms for the clutch problem then I will guess at a few and you can make your decision from them
clutch problems fall into the following categories"-
shudder on engagement
not allowing gear selection with out grating gears
noise that is present when the pedal is pressed or goes when pressed
1-- slipping--can be from the following areas
a--clutch cable failure that is jamming and not allowing engagement
b-- hydraulic clutch master cylinder compensating port blocked and not allowing clutch engagement
c--- oil on the clutch plate linings
a and b are external and require new items which ever you have
c is a box out job and is reasonably rare
2---shudder can be from
a-- broken engine mounts,
b bad drive line joints and
c----oil/grease on the clutch plate
again a and b are external but c will require box out
3--- not allowing engagement with out grating
a-- no clutch fluid in the reservoir
b---clutch cable broken
c-- seized spigot bearing in the crankshaft for the input shaft of the gear box
again a and b are external but c is box out
4--- is a throw out bearing failing and is a box out for replacement
some makes of vehicles have the clutch slave cylinder inside the bell housing as an integral part of the throw out bearing so that will also be box out
Now you have to decide if the box has to come out for a clutch replacement or the cheaper parts to be replaced first

Will not go into gears even if pressing down on clutch

Check the fluid reservoir. If it's low on fluid, fill the reservoir and pump the clutch pedal until you feel resistance from the clutch. If the reservoir is full, and the clutch isn't disengaging, you likely have a bad release bearing or broken linkage. If it is a bearing problem you're most likely into a clutch replacement.

Need to replace the whole clutch system and dont know the partts needed

(clutch disc, pressure plate, throwout bearing, pilot bearing. most auto parts stores can get the kit all in one.) you probably have a hydraulic clutch which also would consist of a master/slave cylinder and line, but this is generally not necessary to replace unless you break the part when installing (which can easily be broken as most are made of plastic)

Replaced master cylinder in clutch in an attempt to stop the car sticking in gear and moving when foot taken of brake. It still moves while the clutch is still depressed and needs brake to stop...

Sounds like a worn-out clutch plate or broken/damaged throw-out bearing or pressure plate. You need to replace the clutch - including the pressure plate, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing, and I also recommend a new slave cylinder. (Especially since you have allready replaced the master cylinder.) You may want to weigh the pros and cons of having your flywheel machined or just replacing it with a "Remanufactured " flywheel.

does the clutch chatter when releasing it? if so, could be a broken or broken springs on clutch disk.

Engine knocking

Good news is - I don't think you need a new engine.

As there are many moving parts that could create a knocking sound, it usually needs careful inspection to identify where it is from.
I will give a list of some of the causes and remedies. Yours will probably be one of them, but unless I was there - it could be any.

Loose exhaust component (causes rattles and thumps) - replace parts or joints.
Loose Engine mounts - Engine will move about a lot more than normal - Replacement of mounts.
Fraying Belts - causes continual ticking or slapping - Replace belts and check tension.
Timing is off - bad running, lack of power, pre ignition or knocking at low revs. Check timing belt - Replace, Tune engine.
Cracked valve - slight misfire worse at low revs - Replacement valves.
Clutch Problems - Broken spring or loose bolt - Check clutch plate - replace clutch plates.
Older engines - often accompanying smoke -
Broken Piston ring - continual ticking or occasional misfire - Replace Piston rings
Worn Piston bearings - Piston Slap - Replacement of all piston bearings.

Transmission Problems (only heard when in gear or with clutch out) - Broken gear teeth or worn bearings - Replacement of Transmission or rebuild.

Some of these remedies require engine removal and strip down, others are a simpler fix.
