I've got a 67 with a 200cu and 3 speed manual. The car has been sitting since 1982, and I'm working on getting it going again. So far I have gotten the engine running. Now I would like to getting it moving on its own.
Problems... The clutch pedal does not return correctly, it only goes back up about 1/3 of the way, and does not seem to be engaging when I fully depress it. I can pull it back up with my toe and it will stay at the top. The large spring is still intact on the pedal and seems ok. The upper clutch rod is way off center and is rubbing against the firewall where it goes through the hole. It is rubbing toward the passenger side.
When I have the pedal depressed, the rod gets close to the center of the hole. The rubber boot is long gone, what was left of it disintegrated when I touched it.
Here's a pic:
With the engine running, I tried to get it moving, but it just stayed put when I put it in gear and released the clutch pedal. No banging, no noises at all, just continued idling as if it were still in neutral. The shifter itself needs adjustment as well.
Any tips or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
