Had a 91 4-Runner dropped off at the shop the other day with a supposed bad clutch. Will start up in gear and I can slip the clutch with it engaged and the brakes on. When I release the clutch the truck will spin its tires but it never fully engages when I push it in. It has "minimal" usage on a new clutch so Im straying away from that but who knows, it belonged to a kid so he could have fubared it real quick. The slave also seems to be moving about an inch on engagement.
Any ideas? Throw-out bearing backward? Didnt think that was possible but who knows. Bent fork? Bull pin jumped the heffer shaft?

If it's starting in gear it's not disengaging...hmm. I don't think that could be anything you mentioned. Does it have and inspection cover? Sounds like it might be packed with dirt on the finger and they are not letting go??

Strange one.

Is it possible the slave isnt secured properly, and is taking up the extra slack the clutch should?

Thanks guys. Before I put a bunch of this kids money into this truck Im going to try a clutch slave. It kinda seems it may not be pushing far enough to engage all the way.

Pressure plate broken. Only partially disengaging clutch. Rolling Eyes
