Article 1982 - Clutch Vibration

TSB #126 - November 7, 1969
(1970 Maverick)


Replace clutch housing and clutch release bearing

The vibration can be identified by a scrubby feeling in the clutch pedal during operation and/or an audible booming noise in the passenger compartment. The condition will no occur unless the engine is running and becomes most pronounced in the 1000-1800 R.P.M. range.

Maverick vehicles subject to possible clutch pedal vibration will have engine assembly production dates in a sequence starting with 9A1 through 9F3 (ie. January 1, 1969 through June 3, 1969). The production date codes will be found on a machined surface on the left side of the engine block just ahead of the distributor.

Be certain to inspect the rear engine plate and rear face of block for any irregularities that could prevent proper seating of the clutch housing. Clean all mating surfaces.

Apply a light film of grease to the front face of the clutch release bearing and the transmission front bearing retainer.

NOTE: The replacement clutch housing must carry a green or blue paint code on the housing rear face near the bore opening to be acceptable.
