Re: 35 12 will not shift in to first and reverse when warm

Thanks for all the responses. Will take everything in to consideration and report with any findings. Worst case the floor boards are coming up I guess.

One suggestion from a friend was that the vacuum booster on the clutch was weaker when warm because of less engine vacuum. I'm thinking that it is a boost of the mechanical linkage so theoretically it should work with zero boost.

Yes, the clutch can still function normally even with a non-functional vacuum booster though of course more pedal effort will be required.

I'm curious about your friend's comment that a warm engine produces less vacuum, not an observation I've ever noted or heard about - any comments from others on this?
