[ROVERNET - UK] Clutch Problems

I have just been through a dragging P6 Clutch...
When I put it on the car, I didn't disturb the clutch. Bad move!
It was stuck.
After reading this list, I tried freeing the plate by jamming a rod in through the timing mark hole...
Eventually I freed it by turning the crankshat via the damper bolt.
However (unknowingly) I had scored the pressure plate, and it dragged randomly from then on. It did not matter how much throw I had on the slave (I cranked it all up).
I would Strongly recommend pulling the clutch out.

Subject: [ROVERNET - UK] Clutch Problems
I have had shifting problems with my '69 TC for years. I think the
problem is in the clutch hydraulics. I don't think the clutch
withdraws sufficiently. If I am waiting to move forward in first gear
with my foot on the clutch it is sometimes hard to shift back in to
neutral. I have changed master and slave cylinders with perhaps a
temporary improvement and I usually bleed the slave with the cylinder
off the car to get rid of air bubbles.. I think that the flexible
nylon clutch pipe might suck air in when the clutch is released. I
keep meaning to replace the flexible line with a solid one so see if
I did hear of replacing the clutch slave cylinder with one with a
slightly smaller bore - this should give a longer throw. Does anyone
(Kent maybe?) know of such a cylinder?
