2 trucks 2 different clutch ?'s

Ok, so I have a clutch that works great in my 110, but takes a great deal of effort to depress the pedal?

After driving it for the first time the other day I got in my 90 and it felt like the clutch was not working, it was, it just was so much easier to depress.

Question #1 one is what would make it so hard to depress? I did remove the extra spring, and it was pretty much the same.

My other question is what would make a clutch seem to be bouncy? for lack of a better word? The clutch engages fine, its just tough to let it out smoothly.

Thanks

you might have a small seep in your master. thats what happened to my 90, replaced it and it was a lot tighter than it has ever been.

There are two different pedal assemblies. The later (300TDI era) ones have a different spring mechanism to reduce clutch effort.

The one that's hard to depress came on the 1999
Body.
The 1985 is much easier.
Im wondering if both masters are screwed up?

What transmission is in the '99? My defender has an lt77 behind a 300 tdi and it is very difficult to depress. When I drive other cars it feels like the clutch takes no force to depress.

The year of the truck means nothing. Who know what things have been changed. Look at the spring setup. The later system is quite different.

I'm pretty sure the rest of the clutch system is the same between LT77/R380 and the various diesel engines.

Could be different springs in the pressure plate.

This seems most likely. A heavy duty clutch will be harder to press the pedal.

Could be a bunch of other stupid stuff (like say a binding pin in the pedal assembly), but I doubt it.
