I LOL'd at this thread, because of the posts were Bozz mentioned cooking his clutch because it stopped it shuddering.
The reason this is funny, is because I was driving another members car, and was instructed to launch it hard, which I did, and the clutch did not
grip at all, and I kept into it thinking it would grip :P
Cue acrid clutch smell.
I blame s**t 4L clutches.

Anyway, I get a call from him the next day, saying thanks, because his clutch had stopped shuddering.
It did the same thing as Bozz's though, eventually came back.


You weren't instructed, you just did. And it was a s**t launch! Blame the driver, not the clutch.

And the shudder did come back, but to a lesser extent than previous.

You C*** told me to launch it you window licker.
It would have been a good launch if your hobo clutch had of actually gripped.
If you want to fix it again try 2nd gear burnouts out the front of my work, look for the lines that both kyle and I have left, try and add to them.
I expect to see them tomorrow morning.

I was drunk you f**k homo gnome, I don't remember much apart from telling you to beat the Excel - which you failed to to do!

My car don't do burn outs, its too grippy. I believe you have worked that out already.

Haha, not true.
When does a 150rwkw manual car, beat a 220rwkw manual car?
When Arm79 is driving the 220rwkw one!

You're still s**t I bet your best time in the Sprint and you didn't have the guts to bring it to the next drag day to loose again.

Some causes of clutch shuddering,

1. Oil on driven plate facings.
2. Scored pressue plate or flywheel face.
3. Loose or damaged engine mountings.
4. Loose or damaged driven plate hub.
5. Loose driven plate facings.
6. Cracked pressure plate face.
7. Un even pressure on driven plate from pressure plate diaphragm fingers.

Word. I've had them all!

What a hijack. I've still got all these problems in my Fraud.

Anyone wanna buy a low kilometer, never thrashed, never drifted, never broken down, never had any problems, no oil leak, manual EL fairmont for $2.5k? :D

my 5ltr does it too, and I used a clutch aligning tool. One thing of interest that I found in the Ford Racing Motorsport catolog is that the bell housing to block face is sometimes not parallel to the bellhousing to box face. This can be cured with shims and needs to be checked with a dial indicator as well as bellhousing runout. Just my 2c s**t oppinion


Worth bumping this thread (i'm clearing out old emails)

Few months back another gearbox sh.it itself again, this time I grabbed the bellhousing with the gearbox from pick-a-part and since installing it, the shudder is gone.

Jaysen, you were spot on with your suggestion of a fcuked bellhousing. I'm dissapointed I didnt fix it years ago because i've gone through enough T5's and every time I didn't take a bellhousing....

Cheers
