    Well, that sucks, Bob!!!

    Did you have to drive it home without a clutch? Always a treat.

    I was about 100 miles away and could not get it into gear. So I had it towed home. Cost a lot of $$$

    Now I have coverage on the trike so if something like that happens again AAA will tow it home.

    The new clutch arrived today. I have it on the engine and the throw out bearing on the Trany.

    Now have to wait for my son to help me lift the engine in place tomorrow.
    Thank you

    I usually put the tranny in first gear with the engine off and start it in first. Then just compression shift the rest of the time.

    There must be a trick to do this. I tried it several times with no luck. People have told me in he past it can be done but I can not get it to work

    Got the new clutch and bearing installed and the engine back on the trany

    Took it for a ride today

    Need to do some other maintenance while I have the back seat off.

    Everything should be back together tomorrow

    The Ol'Lady and I have a trip planned for Sunday.

    I am cleaning things up while I have it apart.

    I don't have any leaks that I know of (not loosing oil from the engine or trany or have oil on the shop floor) but the under side of the engine, trany and frame were very dirty. Not oily dirty, thick, black greasy stuff, had to scrape a few areas clean before wiping and painting
    Thank you

    My Trike has been back together and was running good since my last post.

    Now I have a howling noise every time I push in the clutch. It just started the other day.

    It does not howl when the clutch is ingaged

    It sounds like when I have had a wheel bearing go out on other cars

    I think it is the new throw out bearing.

    I will have to pull the engine and look at it soon
    Thank you

    Yep.

    It is hard to find a good one anymore.

    I picked one that was supposed to be the good one.

    But it looks like any other cheapo...
