Can not shift my new trooper into gear unless I shut it off

Hi all Im very new to this forum, I purchase my t2 today it had 40 miles on it when i got it. The dealer told me that the clutch needed to be adjusted. I took it off my trailer and It would not go in reverse. I had to litterally shut off the trooper put it in gear then start it.

When I did this you could tell the clutch was still grabbing as the trooper wanted to move as the starter turned over the engine.

So I noticed that the adjustment on the bottom of the slave cylinder was set at max. I was puzzled so upon further inspection I decided to take the lever off that connect to the splined shaft that goes into the bell housing. I moved it a couple cogs closer to the slave cylinder and backed off the adjustment on the end of the slave.

I was all proud of myself thinking problem solved, wrong still the same problem. So now I adjusted the slave all the way out again, still same problem

Now I can clearly see the slave cylinder is working fine and there is no play,there actually is no play in the setup and i would be paranoid that the clutch would run partially engauged with the clutch peddle not depressed.

The dealer did tell me the clutch needed adjustment and since my best friend owns a garage and is a very compitent mechanic I assumed I could do it.

Does anyone else ever have this problem.

I called them and they told me to bring it in tomorrow. I just dont have any faith in there very young mechanics. After all they sent it out like this.

And the second problem is I have plans for my trooper this weekend, and I dont see it getting fixed that quick.

There is another adjustment at the peddles. You have to pull the peddles down and adjust the same type of rod to make sure you are getting full hydraulic movement from the master cylinder. The rod is probably screwed in so the master is producing only part of the force needed.

The adjustment on the clutch can be very touchy. I the slave is traveling too far it can actually re-engauge the clutch. The adj. rod at the master cylinder needs to have a little free play in it when not pushing on the clutch. maybe about 1/8 inch. Then the slave rod need to have a slight amount also. It can be very frustrating trying to get it right. I strongly suggest letting the dealer handle it in case there are other issues. A.

Thats exactly what it was. The clutch release bearing was pushing the fingers of the pressure plate into the disk, the dealer didnt even know that.

The joyner rep told me about that issue and after A combination of adjustments at the peddal and at the slave I have it working perfectly.

All I have to say is contacting joyner was a very good experience, they were patient and knew what they were talking about, and to top it off they authorized my friend "who is a qualified mechanic" the abiltiy to do any warranty work.
