    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    The Lockheed pushrod being shorter than the Girling pushrod could be the source of the problem if they were somehow mixed up in the cars. One thing I do notice in the illustrations that you've...

    And I was thinking about making a longer push rod.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    There are three of us in this discussion that are having the same problem and one other that I have spoken to. If there is a mechanical problem that keeps the slave from being adjusted what could it...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    Excuse me for belaboring this issue but can someone help clarify the adjustment process on the slave cylinder rod. The manual is not quite clear enough. It seems that in order to eliminate the free...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    I've replaced the slave cylinder but of course that didn't work. Talking to the owner of an imported car service garage he told me that he had the same problem with a Jaguar that he was working on....

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    Interesting that others have the same problem that I'm having. I understand Randalls contention that using a weaker spring is a workaround but if the rod is adjusted properly and there is no air in...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    Could the spring tension be strong enough to cause the rod on the slave to bend slightly. This was a new slave cylinder when installed but the spring was original to the car. After multiple...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    My return spring is very difficult to get into the hole. The one in the picture on post 14 does not seem to have a lot of tension on it. Once I get the gearbox back in the car I'll try a weaker...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    After filling with clean SAE 30W I'll drain it again and put 90W gear oil in it. As far as the problem I'm having I have to believe that it is hydraulic. I'll put the gearbox back in and try another...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    Now I'm really confused. The shop manual calls for SAE 30W in the gearbox whereas the Practical Hints is calling for 90W. Which is it?

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    Did you mean adjusting the slave cylinder rod to gearbox lever. I was never able to adjust it properly. The last time I tried the rod ran out of adjustment. It wasn't long enough.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    I managed to remove the gearbox solo. It was easier than I thought. Unfortunately when I removed the pin, I found it intact. It was not broken. Back to the drawing board. I now suspect a faulty slave...

    Are you saying raise the transmission by jacking via the engine sump pan? Do the bolts in the bell housing come out before it is raised?

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    Thanks for the explanation. I now understand what is happening. Until the tranny is removed, I guess I'll continue to double clutch. It seems clear that the pin is broken.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Mounting Slave Cylinder

    If the piece was broken and both halves fell out of the shaft the clutch wouldn't disengage at all because the shaft would turn inside the fork. Right? If the broken half was still stuck in the shaft...

    I have the Girling system so the cylinder is mounted correctly. Do you have an illustration showing this tapered pin? I don't know what it looks like. Thanks.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Choke Cable Problem

    I was mistaken. The choke does stay in the open position when pulled without springing back. Turning the knob and pushing it back in returns the jets to the non choke position.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Choke Cable Problem

    No. I bought an original style cable from Moss but it doesn't lock in the choke position and wants to return because of the springs, so you have to keep it pulled while pressing the starter. It's a...

    Polishing the jets with a household brass cleaner did the trick. I think the replacement seals offered by Moss instead of the cork seals may be more restrictive. The action on the choke is still not...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Choke Cable Problem

    The pin on the rear clevis is not long enough to allow the the clevis to straddle the arm. There is no problem with front pin. Do they make a longer pin for the rear?
