  1. Guys it's all sweet I've fixed the dirty hoe She's working But now that brings me on to me next question.... Do we know of any clutch upgrades As the v8 is giving too much power to put down And a release bearing and clutch fork or full system upgrade??
  2. The only picture I currently have.... As far as I'm aware the clutch is free of oil and grease, if it wasn't this would cause clutch slip and would mean I could get into gears without much issue And that's the problem I'm having, the clutch isn't engaging enough to get into a gear properly I've ruined a thread on the bellhousing for the slave so time to helicoil that Then try again to see what's going on The only other thing I can think of is the clutch is nackered, but I'm not taking the gearbox out until I've exhausted every other option, as I'm on axel stands on my driveway and my friendly garage is about 30 miles away annoyingly Another thing I'm now thinking is maybe the master cylinder is on its last legs and isn't creating enough pressure to push the slave? Could this be possible?
  3. Okay so I'm having some more clutch issues Fork is we're it's ment to be Pivot pin... Not sure if this is my issue New master new slave for tr7 The problem I'm having is after I've bled the system I'm still not getting a proper disengagement from the clutch so that I can select gears When the vehicle was built River v8 3.5 with tr7 gear box 5 speed I was told that the clutch pin needed to be extended, and so it was Only problem I face now is with the new slave I can't get the extended pin in, or am I just being abit soft not pushing hard enough aha this has baffled my head completely Any info would be great If anyone knows the size of the pivot that would be correct for this conversion would be amazing
  4. Ahhh well its all gone back together as should, without taking the box out Grinders can be friendly As for the pivot pin I didn't know about that il look into that's for sure!! My only issue now is that I'm not getting enough of a push on the clutch to be able to select a gear properly anyone any ideas? Maybe the pin is abit short or? I do have movement about an inch
  5. Ahhh well its all gone back together as should, without taking the box out Grinders can be friendly As for the pivot pin I didn't know about that il look into that's for sure!! Thankyou soo much
  6. Unfortunately the metal is from me drilling about and being a rough sod I'm trying to get the fork back onto the bearing but it's a pig to slide on and get onto the pivot at the same time... Without the box on
  7. They are not Roger, I need to get them back on the bearing and onto the pivot aswell But they're being a swine and the sliders keep moving around in circles ahah
  8. Hmm though it might be the fork not on the bearing properly So had a look from my newly made inspection area on the bell housing Not too sure if this is right?
  9. So I have a rover v8 3.5 with the accompany Bell housing and a tr7 gearbox All is squeezed into a maxda b2200 pickup truck I was driving home the other night and the clutch slave fell out... Yes fell out Anyway long story short I've installed a new slave and bled the system, the best I can anyway I can physically see the fork moving when the clutch is pressed And I can see that the fork is still on the pivot But when I press the clutch and go to 1st wheels don't turn until the clutch is release But every other gear is difficult to get into and the wheels turn even when the clutch is fully depressed I've lost most of my patience today with this ahah Could do with abit of knowledge as all else is failing I'm also getting abit of a squeel coming from the box/bellhousing It's a bit hard to locate the exact origins of this squeel aswell and the noise is new I have ruled out it isn't the belt sqeeking
