Maintenance / Re: Q-Jet help
« Last post by KurtS on May 03, 2016, 03:02:35 AM »
I have a frozen Q-jet too.
I heated it up with a heat gun and put the trans oil / acetone mix at the shaft / throttle body interface. Multiple times. I can feel the throttle shaft twisting - I'm afraid it may shear off. At this point I think I have to take the throttle plates off and press out the shaft unless someone has any other ideas.
The secondary shaft is locked up too - it's a lot harder to get a grip on to even try to rotate.

Mike: "Make sure the throw-out bearing is adjusted right as well as pedal travel."
What I was thinking exactly. If there is no free play in the linkage, the disc is is still touching the cover or flywheel. Several things that I encountered switching from diaphram to borg&beck and Long style is that the ball height of the pivot fork and the thickness of the T.O. Bearing can be changed to achieve the correct geometry. Lot of factors to consider as well as what oil is being used, hopefully not synthetic.
Fresh new oil (90W) gear lube was put in tranny.

M22 gears are not straight cut.  Less of an angle than M20/M21, but not straight cut.

Check the easy stuff first.  In other words, the shifter.  If that doesn't solve the problem, then start looking at the clutch/throw out bearing/bellhousing alignment
Byron, Thanks for the info.....

The shifter linkage adjustment is frequently mentioned, but seldom the cause.  Worth a check.
The clutch is adjusted properly with 1" of free play measured with a tape measure at the pedal pad against light finger pressure.  Make sure there is no lost motion in the clutch linkage. If you still get grinding with the right clutch adjustment, the clutch is not fully releasing.  That causes the gears to continue to rotate and clash going into reverse. Try going into a forward gear first to stop the rotation and then try to go into reverse. Might help, but not solve the problem.

If the installer hung the weight of the transmission on the disk while trying to install the transmission, you could have bent the disk. disk can't release fully and it grinds going into reverse.

Usually this is the cause - pressure plate can be warped and cause this grinding symptom. Defective pressure plate or heat related damage from clutch linkage adjustment being too tight. Tight clutch adjustment allows clutch slippage, which causes heat, which then warps the pressure plate, and the disk can't release anymore - you get grinding.

Replace clutch with a stock replacement LUK brand and be done with it.
Stinger...I've never heard of a "LUK" replacement brand clutch...

Which year are you talking about?

Headers and cowl plenum were available as factory options in 67 and 68 (although both were most likely removed as options before the end of the 68 model year). They were in the trunk when the car arrived at the original dealership, if ordered.  Both are rare. Some dealerships would not install them though, so that was then up to the owner.  Headers not available as a factory option in 69.

Cross ram was not on any 67 68 or 69 Camaros from the factory.
