Clutch question

when a clutch slave cylinder cover is removed and all the internals taken out there is a shaft that is exposed. What is that shaft connected to? Is that the lifter rod? If so can I push on that to verify that the clutch itself is not frozen?

The shaft should push a mechanism that seperates the clutch plates or disengages the clutch. Clutch push rod mechanism.

Not sure if you can physically push it. You may have to build some kind of jig.

Fill me in one whats going on. Full story.

I would pull the clutch cover off and visually inspect the basket if you are curious if the clutch is frozen. That way you can at least see what's happening in there when you try to push or activate the push rod mechanism

the rod s/b connected to the pressure plate

if you want to know if it is frozen, reassemble slave, bleed, start bike and put in gear.

Check the clutch with the bike OFF.

Heres the original thread from last summer.

https://chicagolandsportbikes.com/for...d.php?t=104804

Like everything else, thsi was one of those sidetracked project.


I know for a fact I reduilt the master cylinder with new parts and the pics of the nastyness is in teh old thread. I also know for a fact that I am getting fluid into teh slave cylinder as I am bleeding it through teh bleeder valve that is availbe. You can see my little make shift straw to dump fluid away from the bike.
I also state that I rebuilt the slave in the original thread. this part I don't remember. I do know for a fact that I pulled the slave aprt and at minimum CLEANED everything, but do not remeber if my friend bouht teh rebuild kit.

At any rate, we left off at the fact we were getting fluid into teh slave but NO resistance at all. It seems as if there is no hydrailc pressure there to act on teh shaft that I described. Also as an FYI to teh project, the bike has no battery.

pulled slave guts:


assembled and bleeding:

Did you blow the line out like Gus suggested in the other thread? Blow that shit out with the air compressor. There's probably a big chunk of shit stuck in there.

negative on teh line blow out. I guess I "ASSumed" that if fluid was making it down to teh slave everyhthing was all good. Another thing is I'm gonna pull the slave apart to verify it's new. Others rebuild as well just becuase it's cheap insurance.

Put it all together the best you can, make sure the line is cleaned out and if you are still having trouble bring it over to Park Forest. You only live 20 or 30 minutes away.

I bring my guns to people who know what they are doing with that shit. Actually, I have this old 4 - 10 bird gun that the retractor pin is fucked up. When you crack the barrel it doesn't spit the old shell out. Can you fix that shit?

yes. Its gonna be one of a few diffrent things. When it did work did it "eject " the empties completely out or just "extract" them out abot 1/2 inch so you could grab them.
If it's an old single shot odds are it is just an Extractor that is busted. Plenty of reources to get parts. Send me a pic of teh rifle so I can look into availability. Still need teh gun for full diagnosis.

H&R, Rossi... do you remeber the maker. not necc the model.

I will let you know when I get home. I'm stuck in Jackson Mississippi at the airport. Our plane was struck by lightning so I'm sitting at the bar right now.

When it worked correctly, after you took a shot and cracked the barrel the shell would shoot out. Now you have to pick it out. I love that gun for pheasant hunting. I killed plenty of pheasant with that trusty little gun.

That is an Ejector gun. A little more complex but non the less pretty simple and common fix.

Air in the line, a more thorough bleed is needed.

You and Nick should trade work for work, then when both of your shit is fixed, ride through IN with Nick driving, and you shooting the locals with the .410

Only take half of that advice. What half, is up to you.
