Subject: 5speed clutch issue|
I picked up a ‘99 dakota sport 4x4 3.9 which someone had
swapped a 2002ish 5speed (nv3500?) into.
The issue is you could not disengage the clutch, it would move
and drive and I could float the gears but no clutch.
It had a brand new slave cylinder in it.
The previous owner said the wrong pressure plate is in it. I tried all
sorts of things before removing the transmission, like changing
the slave C pushrod length,I even fabbed up a mechanical lever to
push in the pressure plate with no luck on getting the clutch to
I’ve removed the tranny, the pressure plate from my research is
from a ‘99 trans 10.5 “ clutch. Definitely a used unit I feel like the
pressure plate is bad but not certain, the tines are out of wack and
just looks used up.
So at this point my main question is.
Do I replace with a 10.5 “ clutch that bolts up to the ‘99 flywheel?
Or get the 12” clutch and install a 2002 ish flywheel to fit?
Ithanjs in advance!!

Update, Ive bench tested the pressure plate, seems like it does
what it’s supposed to, it does release with movement at the clutch
side distance of pressure of the plate distance + 1/16 . Moves
roughly 1/2” at the throw out bearing side. I don’t know what the
actual specs are though .
Slave cylinder throw versus pp movement.
Also , the pressure plate does not have equal distance all around
when I bench test. But my test setup is a little janky.
