    Use of an Engine Crane - Bath/Bristol

    **EDIT; CRANE NO LONGER REQUIRED** Hello, Clutch issues are stopping my enjoyment of my Series 2a, as such, the gearbox needs to come out. While I've been told that a 2x4 and some determination can do the job, an engine crane seems to be the more appropriate technique. Current living situation...

    So a question to the wise. Series 3 88, 2.25l petrol, 1974 Landy has been standing for the past year and the clutch pedal is solid (no give) . The gearstick is also not as free as it was. Is this a case of filling with ep90 and starting him up in hope the warmth generated will free the clutch or...

    Clutch pedal hard, release quick but all parts changed.

    Hi all I’m new to the forums so I apologise if I’m posting a duplicate thread.

All fluids look OK and she drives smoothly, gears engage well, brakes...

    Freelander clutch problem

    I have a 2007 diesel Freelander S TD4. 2 months ago, at 110,000 miles, the clutch went (clutch pedal down to floor, would not return, gears would not engage). I had the clutch, slave cylinder, etc, replaced. Fairly standard problem from what I can gather. Unfortunatley, in my case, that is not...

    Bottoming out clutch

    Ok, boogie (TD5 ES on 03 plate) has an annoying clutch. When I got boogie the clutch pedal (operating range) was very low, i.e. the clutch only disengages in the bottom 1/4, or less, of the pedal travel and even then I'm not 100% is fully disengaged (drive shafts can be heard to move, although...

    Just starting my own thread about my clutch problems, and not hijacking someone else's thread!! pulled the box out again but I'm not seeing what's wrong.

    Clutch flywheel noise TD5

    I have just had the clutch release bearing and clutch changed having had screeching noises. They are now gone but when the engine is cold and you depress the clutch you can hear what sounds like the thrust bearing running slightly. Could this be the dual mass flywheel? But it all goes quiet when...
