Re: Orchid Green Alpine

Nice Paul. I restored mine a few years back and we went back to the Orchid Green, Didn't like it at first but I'm glad we did. It really looks nice. I have since found a couple out there. many have been painted a different color. I get a lot of complements.

Re: Alpine V

Hey George I know this is a stupid questions but the thrust bearing you speak about. On the transmission or the engine? i see a trust bearing in one of my workshop manuals in the transmission.

Re: Alpine V

Hey guys thanks again for the help. I put the rope back in the garage for now!! I'll try ordering a new line to see if that helps. george i think you were saying that the motor might still run good even though the thrust bearings might be bad? I hate to pull this engine again to work on the PP or ne...

Re: Alpine V

Hey George, thanks for the help. I spoke to you last week. Can't remember if the adapter was there or not. I think when I did the rebuild we might have changed it as trying to find a new line with those threads wasn't available so we used an adapter. I will try this. As for the thrust bearings I did...

Re: Alpine V

I believe the throw out wore down because the clips that hold it in were either left off or broke off. the throw out was wore on 1 side. I'll check the thrown out and take a picture tonight and attach. It appears like the one you have in the picture. I bought a new slave just to try a new idea. i ha...

Re: Alpine V

We replaced the plate,clutch and throw out 2 years ago. We had an issue that we couldn't get it in gear. We changed out the plate with the old one and it worked a little better. I drive it for the last 2 years maybe a 1000 miles total. Last year it started acting up when trying to put it in gear. So...

Re: Alpine V

Yes the Slave is the same length. I just replaced it over the weekend hoping it might have been the issue. I did not replace the pilot bushing when we did the rebuild so that's why I suspect it. I replaced the throw out 2 years ago when we did the work. I had a problem right before the Dayton meet a...

Re: Alpine V

Thanks Mike. I tried your idea with the reverse and that didn't seem to make a difference. I feel that the pilot bushing might be the issue. I doesn't feel like the the pressure plate is engaging enough. I'm getting a good throw on the slave (about 1 inch) which i would think is enough? It feels lik...
