06/01/2005 18:37:59   Steve   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.
