my signature pic of my blown clutch.

This is what happens when you accidentally jam your transmission into 1st when you're doing 50+ - don't try this at home.

Car condition and mods: 1984 5MGE with K&N filter and half-cut filter box, blown-out muffler (too much pressure, even without a turbo???)

Yeah, but wouldn't that require a lot of force? Even when shifting fast, its pretty obvious when trying to shift into a gear the car doesn't want to be in

Your lucky the clutch shattered. You would be replacing the motor if the clutch didn't let go.

"You keep using that word.... I do no think it means what you think it means.." :wink:

That is definately one nasty looking clutch... Guess you'll shift a bit more carefully eh?

Yeah, trying to shift to 3rd racing a Taurus between lights.

I know, I don't need to really try to beat a Taurus.

It made big grinding clunk and the clutch wouldn't come off the floor.

Got the new clutch in and notice that the line between 1st & 3rd is longer - you know how the stick swings side-to-side in Neutral? It now gets caught on the 1st gear line if I try to swing it a couple times and I have to pull it back a little to avoid the line (where lines are between the "H" in the shift pattern).

Anyway, is there a way to post big pics in messages?

Have you ever noticed the Img button when posting???

Also I think pics will take up bandwidth space so choose carefully.
