1964 monza shifting issue

Unread post by Mbrannon64 » Sun Jul 09, 2017 12:34 pm

So my dad and I are working on the 64 it's not wanting to shift right. When the car is running and sitting still it shifts great through all gears. When the back wheels are off the ground and it's running it shifts great through all gears. But under load going down the road it doesn't want to go In and out of gear it doesn't grind or any thing as soon as you come to a stop it will shift. We have adjusted the clutch but not much h improvement. Anyone have any thoughts

What would cause the clutch disc to continue to turn when the clutch pedal is depressed?
1. A possible cause would be the transmission input shaft is very tight in the pilot bushing. This would cause the disc to continue to turn and in turn cause difficulty in shifting.

2. Another possibility is a clutch disc stuck to the flywheel. This could happen if the disc and flywheel got wet and rusted together.

3. If fluid in the transmission is very very thick, might cause the sychro system to not work.
