RE: [T3] Clutch cable stretch?


The fork that pushes the throwout bearing on the early cars can break one of
the arms off.  It usually feels a bit different after that happens though.

Subject: [T3] Clutch cable stretch?

Hi,

I was trying to move my 1967 Squareback the other day and found that I could
not get it in gear. The clutch pedal goes down and feels pretty normal, but
it does not seem to disengage the clutch. I had my wife push the pedal and
saw through the back that it was moving. I tightened the cable as far as it
would go, but still not disengagement.
Can the clutch cable stretch? Or does the Bowden tube flex hat could cause
this?

Thanks,

Phil
