    I tore my ice breaker down a few months ago and completely went over it. Well today I hooked everything back up and now my clutch won't engage. How do I tell if my clutch is bad, and if it is, where is the best place to buy a new one?

    Thanks Bossman

    could be your slave cylinder if its hydro and not cable. my f150 wouldnt go into gear good cuz there was not enough presure built up to work the clutch fork. the fluid could b low or you have air in the system and need to bleed it.

    with clutch bolted down it should be grounded. put power to the wire and see if it clicks.

    i have them if you need one.

    The clutch is bolted down and grounded. With fire to the hot wire it doesn't click. Does the motor need to be running for it to engage? I may take you up on one of those clutches NO LEAD, I will know tomorrow and I will let you know as soon as I know.

    Thanks Bossman

    motor does not need to run. when you engage the clutch from the control it should click loud.
