Clutch issues

I've just noticed my clutch starting to slip when getting under it, changing to 2nd. The clutch is a heavy duty daikin unit, and is less than a year old. I suspect that some oil has gotten in the clutch somehow (possibly front bearing not sealing fully.)

If it is oil, is there something I can put on the clutch to remove the oil without making the surface any worse? E.g., wax and grease remover or something?

Cheers,

Dave

Re: Clutch issues

Use petrol to clean the metal surfaces. I always use an alcohol-based degreaser on the clutch plate, no idea if petrol eats them and not game to find out :)
You plan to fix the seal of course?

Re: Clutch issues

Thanks mongrelEB,

I'll replace the seal, but I think the problem is the seal before the one in there now (replaced less than a year ago) had worn a groove on the input shaft.

It must be a common thing to happen as auto parts places sell thin bushes especially designed for this gearbox for fixing the shaft groove :S

Cheers,

Dave
