||we've been having a year long problem with the clutch on a V4 1971. We've had a reconditioned slave cylender and a full new cluch but still having problems engaging first gear. It's really crunchy seems to get a bit better as the car warms up. The clutch has only done about 70 miles- any ideas or is it a problem we will just have to live with.
||What clutch are you using? This was a common problem with Quinton Hazell clutches in the past, and other cheaper "pattern" parts.
||is it a clutch or synchro problem ? try adjusting column first if it is just difficult to get gear...if it crunches try adjusting free play on clutch..then look at gearbox
||Sounds gear linkage or gearbox if it improves when warm.
