On my recently acquired '85 GLH I've been working tediuosly trying to fix all the bugs the previous owner created. I finally got the thing to start and idle (thanks to minimopar's great troubleshooting pages). Anyways, on to the transmission...

When trying to pull upwards (simulating what the clutch cable would do) on the arm sticking out of the tranny in the front below the motor, it hardly budges. I get maybe 2-4 mm of total range of motion where the cable connects. What could this possibly be?

I'm probably going to end up tearing the motor/tranny out soon anyways, but I'm just trying to get the car so I can move it under its own power right now...

TIA

that's normal. put a large pliers on the arm for more leverage to overcome the pressure plate spring pressure.
Would this be an indicative sign of a new clutch being installed? When I bought the car there was a clutch alignment tool in the back seat. Who knows if it was actually used though.

I'll try the pliers method and report back with my findings...
