MARINA CLUTCH

Classics Monthly - - Service Bay -

Q:

I’m hav­ing some real ag­gro with the clutch on a 1973 Marina 1.3. You push the pedal down, en­gage gear but when you lift the pedal up, there’s no drive – but it comes in 2 or 3 sec­onds later. What could this be?

A:

That will al­most cer­tainly be the clutch hose. Like old brake flexi hoses, they heal up in­side. That means you can force fluid through but it can’t flow back fast enough and the sheer force of the clutch di­aphragm is do­ing it. Fit a new hose and it’ll be fine.
