Thought the clutch was getying stiff.
Thrn after journey gog a smell of rubber, seemed to be from around vent on r.h. side at clutch. Drove home 60 miles or so. No smell.

Clutch doesn't seem as stiff??????
Comments please !!

the clutch is fairly sealed off and has no rubber parts?

the alternator is on the right side under the black cover where you fill the transmission? it has multiple rubber parts??

old clutch cable is typical culprit for a stiff clutch..

are the 2 thing related or just coincidence?

My thoughts...fwiw!

Thank you.
I greased both ends.
It warns against oiling cable, makes it worse!!

It's original cable Very Happy
