IT'S PROBABLY NOT A SCREW, BUT AN ELECTRIC SWITCH, THAT THE CLUTCH PEDDLE ACTIVATES WHEN YOU MASH THE CLUTCH PEDDLE DOWN TO A CERTAN LEVEL. LOOK FOR A SWITCH ON THE CLUTCH PEDDLE WHERE THE LINKAGE HOOKS UP, WITH TWO WIRES COMING OFF. THESE TWO WIRES MAKE CONTACT AND COMPLETE THE STARTER CURCUIT INSIDE THE SWITCH. FORD AND CHEVY SWITCHES WORK SIMULAR. I THINK THE FORD HAS A PIN THAT THIS SWITCH HOOKS OVER ONE PART AND SLIDES THROUGH THE OTHER SIDE AND A COTTER TYPE KEEPER HOLD IT IN PLACE.

If you notice slipping when starting off or changing gears after the clutch is completely released, if the pedal rises almost to the top before the clutch engages, if you have difficulty changing gears, or if when you press the clutch the clutch does not disengage completely.

I know about the starter and ignition, but I click the ignition and then it clicks, then when I press and hold the starter it starts then immediatly stalls, I have tried it in neutral, in gear, with clutch, without clutch, with clutch and throttle.

There are 2 ways, you can start a motorcycle. The best is to have the gear in neutral either after your last ride or before you press the starter button. Then all you have to do is turn the key, make sure the fuel tap is on and press the starter button to start the engine. Or if your motorcycle is in first gear already, squeeze the clutch handle in, to disengage the clutch and press the starter button. Only start to release the clutch, as you start to ride.

Depress clutch and press starter button to start engine, to stop engine just press start button.

It is probably the throw out bearing going bad. You have to remove the transmission from the bottom to replace it. Replace the clutch, pilot bearing, and throw out bearing and have the flywheel resurfaced.

The clutch is the pedal you press to change gear.

The Throwout Bering or the slave cylinder is bad, they are located in the transmission. Pull the tranny and replace the clutch assembly's cost is 300 bucks for DYI or around 6 to 7 bills for a shop. I know this because I just did it on my 94 ranger.

hi i want to know why when i press the clutch i hear noise

User Avatar

a better way of fixing it is to find the wires going into the switch and just join them together thus bypassing the switch and the need the buy a new switch if that is the problem and the need to press the clutch at the same time

User Avatar

Yes and self adjustable, and heavy duty clutch, thus when you press the clutch in, its quite heavy

Your throw-out bearing has went bad in the clutch assembly. You will have to replace the bearing. Inquire about a throw-out bearing at your local auto-parts store. It is a good rule of thumb that if you're going to dissasemble the clutch assembly, you should replace the clutch, and pressure plate too! When clutch-assy has been removed, check the fly-wheel for scarring on its face where the clutch assembly was once attached. The face should be smooth, and the fly-wheel should NOT be warped, pitted, or damaged! If it is, replace it before you put a brand new clutch assembly back onto the vehicle.

There are two normal causes. The clutch is worn out or there is a leak in the hydraulic clutch slave or master cylinder. To check the clutch, press the clutch slave cylinder down. If the clutch slave cylinder bellows compresses down to the slave cylinder, the clutch is worn out. Check the clutch master cylinder fluid level. if this is low, then the clutch cylinder need to be checked. To check for a hydraulic leak in the clutch slave cylinder, remove the cylinder's bellows and check for any fluid. If fluid is present, rebuild or replace the cylinder and bleed the system. To check the clutch master cylinder, check the back the of clutch master cylinder for leaks. If fluid is present, replace or rebuild clutch master cylinder and bleed the system. In my experience, hydraulic leaks occur at the clutch slave cylinder.

When you let the clutch out all the way, if it continues to slip, it's worn out. A slipping clutch indicates that the clutch wear surface has gone. Plan on replacing the clutch disk, pressure plate, throwout bearing and have the flywheel resurfaced. While it's apart, it wouldn't be a bad idea to replace the clutch master and slave cylinders as well. If the clutch will not release when you press the pedal, it could be a warped clutch disk or pressure plate or a faulty hydraulic clutch system (master cylinder/slave cylinder).

A worn out clutch release bearing would cause a whining sound when you put your foot on the clutch.

User Avatar

If a standard transmission vehicle makes a different sound when you press the clutch it usually means that the throwout bearing is about to seize.

there is a safety switch on the the cluth pedal between the pedal and clutch master cylanderthis is under the dashreplace that switch and your problem should be solvedto test if this is the problem,put vehicle in neutral, chock wheelsopen hood and crossterminals on starter solenoid ,on left side of engine bayif this starts truck then the safety switch needs replacingOr you can hook together the 2 wires that is in the switch on the clutch pedal, but be sure that the truck is in neutral !!!, and start it !.

User Avatar

The clutch pedal usually squeaks where the clutch pedal is mounted under the dash. The clutch pedal pivots at its mounting point so it probaly just needs some lubed sprayed on it.

a flywheel and clutch which is on the same shaft and a motor (which rotates the flywheel),also a ram(the moving assembly of press) is connected to the clutch..when motor rotates the flywheel and we apply electrical supply to the clutch..the clutch engaged with the flywheel.we get a motion into the ram.................................................................................................................................................................hun etho simple ni koi das sakda.............................

Hold clutch then press pass

User Avatar

You use the clutch to change gears or stop. Not necessary when slowing down.

Either the brake and clutch pedal assembly needs lubrication or you have a size 14 shoe.

If the clutch pedal still goes all the way to the top, and there is still about the same amount of "free travel" as you press the clutch, it's probably a problem with the clutch disk. If the clutch disk used with the Chev/350 Pickup tends to have any problems it's that the center positioning bushing occasionally breaks (usually after many miles of use) and can cause the disk to bind between the flywheel and pressure plate, even when you press the clutch pedal. In other words, if the clutch pedal still feels the same you'll probably need to replace the clutch disk. On the other hand, if the "free travel" has increased, you'll probably need to replace/repair either the clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder or possibly (if you're lucky) just add fluid.
