Hey everybody, finally saying goodbye to my 91 HB with almost 300k on it. I test drove a 97, fell in love with it the body looks great, the engine ran great with about 150,000 on it. When I pulled off I was embarrassed because it looked like I didn't know how to drive a stick, turns out it wasn't me, and did it to everyone who drove it. Owner says it may need a clutch. Kind of felt to me like it just needed a slave cylinder, can anyone tell me a way to tell? It jumps in 1st gear, and when you let off the gas it seems a little jerky

A heavily worn clutch assembly will act as follows:
  • - slip badly when raising the engine RPMs
  • - will have a tendency to chatter as you're releasing the clutch pedal.
  • - start smoking when raising the engine RPMs.
If the vehicle feels jerky when letting off the gas, that generally indicates a problem with the drive line universal joints or the rear differential gears. If you have a bad slave cylinder, then it'll cause hard shifting or grinding of the tranny gears when shifting. However the clutch hydraulic system may be very low on fluid and there may be air in the system.
