Picked up my car yesterday 12/6 found out that the new clutch out of the box was crap. They bled the clutch f/4hrs. Picked the engs. brains out of Detroit for 2 days. By accident 2 clutch assembly were sent. So they pulled the trans
out again, removed the new clutch and reinstalled the other new assembly and wa-la. It goes into 1st and reverse now with out strain. The car runs smother down the road. ( less vibration ) Found out that the new ( bad ) clutches pressures springs were bent, new f/the factory. Now it hooks up even stronger than originally. ( Believe the clutch was bad f/the start ). Took the wife out to get Packs dogs and she even noticed the difference in traction . And a big plus, the burnt smell of metal grinding is gone . Yaaaaa
the new car smell is back. Thanks to Ben
at Kistler Ford in Toledo Ohio for all your persistence in getting my shelby fixed . ATTA BOY.
Haven't power shifted,the roads are to cold f/hooking up ( temp 32 -36 degrees ) wont be driving my baby until spring, snow is in the fourcast . Still feel the shifter is a big piece of crap and plan on installing a mgw. Still agree w/others that the syncro's in 1st & 2 made in china are crap. probsbbly will go to Taska Ford in the spring f/the tranny issue. Hope this helps anyone.
