    Angry Hilux Vigo Clutch

    Need some ideas here please...

    I replaced my clutch with a Exidy Safari Tuff Clutch.
    I decided to replace the master and slave cyl aswell.
    From what I could gather this is one of the best clutches for offroad use.
    The clutch takes very very low, resulting that the gears are still sticky, and I battle a bit to find reverse. Master cyl has been adjusted to MAX lenth for play.

    Any other ideas what could cause the clutch to take so low?

    Has it always been like this or only since the new clutch?

    It was like this. Clutch that came out was worn badly.
    I also replaced the master and slave.

    Google exidy safari though. Around R6000 for the kit.
    They dont stock safari tuff here. Was imported for me from Aus.
    Reviews are very good. Must be someting ekse causing issues.
    No didnt replace the fork. Mech said it was fine....

    I can only imagine somewhere he has installed incorrectly. take it back to the fitter and ask him to double check the installation where he can without removing the gearbox, if he cannot find any fault, have him/them check internally by removing the gearbox.

    If your spigot bearing is shot it will transmit power to the gearbox even with the clutch fully disengaged. Maybe you need to replace this. My colt had this problem and it will damage your box.

    I am also thinking it might be the accumulator. I suspect air in the system.
    Mechanic is going to check tomorrow....Arghhhhh

    So it was the accumulator. It was getting air, but not showing any sign of leaking fluid.
    We just bypassed it.
    Apparently it was put in so Toyota could put a pressure switch in so you can only start when the clutch is pressed, but was never used. Not sure how true that is....
    Anyways...all sorted...Exidy Safari Tuff clutch in and working Happy Days

    Its the swear filter on the forum.

    I tried say that the pictures are pure car P4O4R4N (withour the 4`s) - but that word is not allowed as it probably triggers website security software alarms on some of the members pc`s

    Hi Stan

    The Exidy Rep arranged the import.
    Got it fitted by a Mechanic close to Edenvale. Fitment is the same as a normal clutch so anyone can do it.
