CLUTCH DISK MIGHT HAVE BEEN PUT ON BACKWARDS ? Sign In

How is everyone doing today ?
I'm working on a 1993 Nissian Pickup D21 2.4L 4 CYL 4WD
5- Speed Manual Transmission. The Truck has 141,000 miles. The truck had a bad release bearing, so a new Clutch kit was installed. After every thing was done, the truck started. The main problem is that the Transmission won't get into gear with the truck on, but ones the truck is off then we can shift gears. The slave cylinder was bleed. I think the clutch disk was put on backward. Your suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Hello,
If this will only shift with the car off, you have a clutch problem, how is the clutch pedal? On the clutch disk is usually says "flywheel side". Are you sure all the air is out of the system, sometimes they are a pain to bleed, sometimes i force fluid down the line or i reverse bleed it(pump it from the slave up to the reservoir.) Gary

I don't think it's possible to put the disc in backwards.

Today, I dropped the transmission back down. Tomorrow I'll recheck everything.

I'm with HT on that. I don't think you would be able to bolt up the clutch cover if the disc was installed backwards.


I would watch the slave plunger to see how far it moves when you press on the clutch.

I agree. It's just not bled out completely.

It also could have broken one of the fingers on the pressure plate.

I've only seen a way to bolt a disc up wrong on twin disc semi clutches, never automotive.

HT might be onto something with a bend or broken pressure plate spring. Especially if the trans wasn't put in smoothly and the shaft got all the trans weight on it yanking it around. Could also bend the disc doing that. Had to replace a brand new clutch in a L9000 from a guy that dropped the trans jack a little too fast while only halfway in, so it can happen. That was a $700 clutch so management was a little put off.

ME and another Mechanic double checked the truck. HE pulled out the pin in the slave cylinder and a lot of brake fluid started coming out. He told me the slave cylinder shouldn't have brake fluid coming out. When I put everything back together, I'll install a the new slave cylinder. Next time, I'll inspect the slave by pulling the boots back instead of going straight to the clutch.

Well - guess this problem is found just like that. True - no real amount of "brake fluid" should be found under boots of such things - slave cylinder, brake wheel cylinders and the like,
