Shippers Broke Defender

So, I shipped my 1989 CSW 110 on 18 July. It was to be from Baumholder Germany to Atlanta, Georgia via the new military contractor. She was supposed to be here no later than 8-September. At one point, they knew she was in Georgia, but didn't know where. Got an email yesterday she was ready to pick up, took the day off to run up from Ft Benning to get her. When I got there, the customer service guy tells me that the clutch doesn't work, when she starts, she is already moving. I get in and try to push the clutch; it is stuck solid!

Needless to say, they will be getting her fixed. Does any one know someone knowledgeable in 19J/LT77 repair in Atlanta? Otherwise, she'll be going to the dealership. This has been a shipment from Hell, but at least they found her. I had a friend that they still don't know where his car is yet, after 2months.

Kind of sounds like a stuck clutch...but I am no expert. I think if you google it there will be instructions on how to "unstuck" the clutch. I would try this. I reread your post. Really not sure about the stuck clutch idea...but I would do some "googling" before I let the dealership play with your 110. In all likelihood they will have little idea what to do with it.

A dealership is not going to know what to do with that unless they happen to have a guy there that is into old Defenders. Most dealership techs have never driven a Defender.

make sure there is nothing wrong with the linkage and that you have adequate hydraulic pressure etc. Seems odd that a clutch plate would be frozen to the flywheel after sittings that short of time. If it is just a stuck plate, just drive it around a parking lot and work the pedal, that was enough to free my plate up after sitting for 28 years.

Dan: you don't want to take it to the dealership. They've never seen a 19j and haven't seen a LT77 since 1994.....
Clutch hydraulics are generally reliable. But locked clutch pedal doesn't dovetail into my experience with this type of clutch mechanism.
So I'm trending towards this being a mechanical linkage failure. Box might have to come out I'm afraid.
Check also with the Solaros crowd for good shops.

I appreciate all the info, that's why I put it to the forum: experience and knowledge. I'll push for them to send her to ULC in Atlanta or Luke at Norcross. That way I know it is someone that knows what to do. I'll let you know how it goes.
