Shudder from a stop

So here's a new one. Recently the truck has been shuddering a bit when accelerating from a stop. Not horrible, but noticeable. If I let the clutch out very easy it's not noticeable. Only happens from a dead stop, happens in reverse as well. Any ideas? Clutch on its way maybe?


I thought for sure it was my radius arm bushings that were totally shot. I put the new ones in and it's still doing it.

Been doing it a bit more since the last weekend at Rausch.

Could have glazed the flywheel or clutch disc, I know I used to have a light shudder in the MG when that had happened and if I slipped the clutch it wasn't noticeable

like engine lugging shudder or rpms are fine but the truck shudders anyway shudder?

if the latter check your brakes or handbrake for a sticking piston

if the former, make sure the engine is getting all the air and fuel it needs and is in proper tune.

you didn't put in a new clutch kit when you changed the engine a few months ago???

Engine seems fine. Not lugging at all. Doesn't feel like the brake is sticking. Happens when I roll to a stop and them go.

Nah I skimped out in the clutch and I'm kicking myself now. It looked like it was in very good condition though. The fly wheel was resurfaced.

Ok. Drone it today and it stopped. Maybe it was a caliper. Who knows. The clutch feels fine otherwise. I'm just going to take it as a good thing it stopped and let it be.

Are you leaking oil out the rear main? Oil on the disc will make it grab

Other than the normal land rover drips. Not really.
