The clutch is not being released all the way, or the clutch disk is damaged.- Or in cooler weather, you will have to delay the time that you change gears, as the Transmission Fluid's viscosity is thicker, and the blocker rings/sychronyzers take a little longer to allow a proper shift. If you have ATF in your tranny, then it wouldn't be a problem, but then you will have to start suspecting a bad clutch disk. OR OIL IN TRANSMISSION IS TOO THICK. SOUNDS LIKE THE PROBLEM! DOES IT GET BETTER AFTER CAR GETS HOT? YEP THATS IT, TOO THICK!

How do you adjust the clutch on a 1983 v65 Magna?

It's hydraulic, so there is no adjustment possible. If it is slipping, either change your oil to a different barnd of motorcycle oil, or replace the clutch plates. I have also heard of putting a few ounces of Mavel Mystery Oil in with the oil for a few miles, and then changing the oil. Sometimes this will clean the "crud" off the plates.

Need step by step instructions on how to remove hydraulic clutchline from Chevy s-10?

Locate and clean the area around the hydraulic clutch hose where it enters the bell housing. Notice the collar around the hose where it enters the bell housing. Use a suitable tool to press the collar down towards the bell housing and hold it down, now you pull/wiggle the hose out. Do not try to pull the hose out until you have depressed the collar first.
