    Default Clutch Problem!!!!! Right Before MJ Please Help

    So i was getting ready to move a trailer and got it hooked up. Jeep was in gear with the clutch in and suddenly it popped and tried to drive off with the clutch still down. Its a mechanical clutch on a t18 transmission. Already adjusted the linkage and it was no help. No weird noises or anything. I can start it in gear and the clutch is still holding strong. Anyone else had this problem so I know if its the shift fork or throw out bearing. no clutch dust or metal shards came out of the bottom. No strange noises. Im wondering if my clutch fork bent or broke. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Yep, I know exactly what it is, just did it to me the other day on the way home from work.

    Behind the clutch fork there is a "post" the has the cluth fork pivot ball on it, some bellhousings have just a ball bearing in there some have a ball with a threaded rod that goes through the bellhousing. that post broke and the ball fell out. I can go snap a few pick of my "new" to me bell housing that I'm replacing mine with to give you a better idea/visual on what I'm saying

    When that ball falls out your clutch fork drops about 1/2 inch which give you no clutch at all

    Well wasnt the ball pulled it today. Turned out to be the pressure plate. One of the bolts for the lever in the plate snapped. I ordered a new one today. Have to get it back together before mj

    That'll do it. half-ass pressure enough to feel almost right, but not enough to do the job. I'm running T18, but did a double force. 5yrs ago, no issue yet, just power shift in the mud.
