Clutch question?


Hi all,

I have a 1965 standard (3 on the tree) I have a clutch question. When I start out in the morning the clutch engages quite nicely but as things heat up it tends to shutter going into gear. The whole car vibrates quite intensely. When I increase the RPM it overcomes this but its not really what I want to do.Is this a sign of something? I am quite new to the clutch world.

ive had a few people look at it and they said its fine but I have a feeling somethings not right

Any advice is much appreciated.

Thanks

Can you be more specific?

Does this happen when you're starting from a dead stop? Between 1st and 2nd? At a certain MPH?

Sorry,

from a dead stop only. If I have a downhill start from a dead stop it doesnt seem to do that. All other gears are fine. It also doesnt go down into first unless Im essentially at a dead stop.

First gear is not synchronized, so you can't downshift until you come to a stop. (That's not a clutch problem.)

If you have trouble putting it into first gear at a dead stop, you may just need an adjustment.

When does this vibrating occur?

Just from a dead stop when I release the clutch. Its perfectly fine for 20 minutes or so than it starts heavily vibrating every time I start out in first gear
