So I'm used to shifting into reverse by -neutral-shift lever hard right-count 1,2,3-slowly and carefully pull the lever back. Still, sometimes a little clunk or crunch. This weekend it was time to deal with the oil seeping out the opening under the clutch.Rear main/clutch shaft seals? Out with the clutch and flywheel. Clutch shaft stuck,but no problem. Check on the posts a last weekend and get out the right size socket, a 8mm bolt and after about 2 turns-pop goes the shaft. Rust on the splines. In with the new seals. the main leaker in the clutch shaft. New pilot bearing along with a low miles slave/throw out thanks to a u-pull-it($5).Existing PP and disc with a little Shimano Dura -Ace grease on the splines go back in. Now for the ride. Shifting smoother. Engagement point closer to mid stroke as it it should be. Probably the better throw out bearing to thank. But the surprise is; right into reverse, no delay, no crunch. Is it the slightly higher engagement? Or was the disc stuck on the splines and not releasing properly?
