My series 2 gtst isn't going into gear while engine is running. Clutch pedal feels like the pressure is gone and is spongy . Looked at fluid levels on the master cylinder they are fine. Slave seems to be operating correctly. If started in 5th with clutch out it stalls immediately so I think clutch is ok. I'm thinking the clutch fork maybe ? Or the ball joint thingamajig. Clutch wont engage when engine is on..Any suggestions or anyone had the same happen.

There's a guide somewhere here but you need to bleed it from the damper then the slave.

It's a shit job unless you've deleted the damper.

One of my mates is coming round to help me bleed the system tomorrow or Wednesday.  I read the guide on bleeding all 3 sections of the clutch lines . Sounds like a pain but hey that's the joys of an RB hey. Will look at deleting return line with braided line to make it easier next time

So I bled the clutch to no avail. The pedal box isn't broken. Slave is operating. Nothing leaking from master cylinder. I noticed that when running, there is a squeaking sound and a slight vibration when clutch is pushed. Any thoughts before I pull the box out.

If the slave looks to be pushing the clutch rod the full throw when you put your foot on the clutch then it sounds like your clutch fingers might be bent and the clutch is not fully disengaging.  Unlikely to be the fork or the pivot ball, they're both pretty heavy duty parts.  Sounds like box out sorry mate!

Actually I've snapped my pivot before, there could be a chance! 

Undo the slave and see of the fork moves properly and is seated properly

Ha ha, I'll just shut up then!!  I've never seen either in my 20+ years in the industry!!!  Maybe the cars at my work are all driven like nanna would and don't get smashed through the gears enough!

Ive bent pressure plate fingers and shattered clutch plate, apparently 7k rpm 2nd gear clutch dumps where a bit too much. This was on a 13B rotary back in the day. It rained clutch plate when i unbolted the pressure plate.
