I'm stumped. New clutch, pressure plate, throwout/slave installed this past weekend in my 1999 V70. Flywheel was resurfaced, machinist told me he took off close to 20,000ths of an inch. Everything went back together fine, initially I was worried when I couldn't get any clutch pedal feel but after some reading here >>> http://www.jimrothe.com/volvo/clutch_bl ... html#volvo
and the purchase of a motive bleeder, that problem has been solved.
After the hydraulic line was pressure bled, I attempted to put the car in gear. The synchos engaged slightly and the car tugged forward, but not nearly enough to really move it. The VADIS software shows some models with a self adjusting clutch mechanism which appear to need compression, but the clutch which was installed/replaced on the car was not this type. My mechanic friend and I are at a loss but have these ideas:
1) The machinist seemed to indicate 20,000ths of an inch on the flywheel is a good deal of metal. Apparently the flywheel was "cupped" which he said is typical due to heating for thinner dual mass flywheels. Does this amount seem unusual? Should spacers be used behind the flywheel?
2) Is there any sort of adjustment on the pressure plate which we may have missed?
I would like to get an idea of what this might be before we resort to tearing everything out again. Thanks in advance>>>Troy
