75 Ts

hi guys my names Ro bought myself a 1990 alfa 75 TS about 4 months ago i love the car and everything on it was original which isnt a bad thing with most cases but i knew the clutch was going as soon as i drove it and i still havent changed it.What does it mean when im engaged in a gear like 4th & 5th and i give it more gas the engine seems to roll over with the car not really going anywhere? Is the clutch just totally worn out? therefore i shouldnt be worrying about anything else but the clutch?

thanks if any replies

Re: 75 Ts

Yep that sounds like clutch to me I had to do one on my old red 75 just before some ass drove into the back of it and wrote it off. try EBSpares and get the full kit including flywheel mine 350 and was 90 quid labor to fit. Thats for a V6

Re: 75 Ts

hi Ro,
yes the clutch is finished,
what you are describing is known as clutch slip...
so basically you need a new one.

I have just changed mine and replaced the slave cylinder at the same time as they are (i believe) prone to wear, and mine was leaking, i think most people will say to change this at same time as clutch... it saves you having to go back under there again anyway.
clutches are not that expensive nor is the slave cylinder, but you MUST make sure you attach the prop and the flywheel as they were because the whole thing is balanced, including i am led to believe the nuts and bolts!

Re: 75 Ts

If you are doing the clutch its a good time to change the rubber doughnut on the driveshaft and check other mountings. Its worth making sure th e slip is not caused by oil contamination on the clutch. if the plate is soaked then your gearbox has a seal gone. Its mots likely just good old wear and old age though.
