frozen clutch

Recommended Posts

We have an 89 superliner V8 12 speed that was in a flood now the clutch won't release.

any ideas on how to free it up?

Get the adjuster collar to stick depressed, start it up and drop the clutch.  Be careful it can destroy the clutch.  I have had good luck with this.

You can also get a screw driver in thru the cover on the bottom and pluck the disks free from the flywheel and the intermediate plates by having someone hold their foot on the pedal or have a stick hold the clutch pedal down  turn the the engine by hand and pluck at each paddle location!I have had to do this !  Where  a unit has sat in a wet location for to long !

I'd probably start the truck in lowest gear, rev it up and with clutch pedal in as far as it'll go keep brake pressure on. Just gotta create more friction with the brakes than you have with the clutch.
