    Anybody ever had trouble getting the tranny out of gear while sitting still? This just started yesterday after a little horsing around. Still still has plenty of free travel and the clutch brake still works. Haven't had a chanch to get under there and check adjustment yet could it be that simple or is it something else. Clutch is only 6 months old and hasn't given any other problems and only 2 hard launches over the weekend

    You probably broke some springs and they're getting jammed up in there. Those 2 hard launches were pretty expensive

    That’s why I went with the Eaton’s 2050 easy pedal. Lipe has to be broken is correctly and are very touchy. The lipe wasn’t meant for my application. I did my research for quite awhile cuz I knew I was due for one within time and that time came.

    While I don't like it, I can put up with it. When you're looking to easily exceed the limitations of an Eaton clutch you don't have many options

    Probably not the clutch. Shifter forks are worn or bent.

    @SmokinCAT knows of an individual that would built you a clutch for your application. He was on here explaining his clutches but I don’t recall who he was .....

    Edit; @superhauler might know who I’m referring too....

    My 15 speed was a royal ##### to get out of gear when I bought my truck. When I tore it open I found the interlock detents between the rails were rusted up from sitting, causing the rails not to slide properly. A twisted mainshaft can cause similar issues. I'm hesitant to say its a clutch considering you say the clutch brake works.

    If it was in the transmission shouldn't I notice something while I'm rowing through the gears? It's shifts completely fine it's just when you stop completely and go to try to get it out of gear

    It could be the clutch, I was In a similar boat with a mid America clutch, i finally put in an eaton easy pedal even though it was only 20000 miles on the clutch. You can tell clutch is dragging if you look at it from underneath sand have someone stop the input then let up s little on pedal.
    A good releasing clutch may soon a little, one that drags the input will take of to full speed.

    I don't know anyone that runs high HP that is still using a lipe, it is likely that even though it is a heavy plate load that when he launched it that it could have still slipped for a little bit, and in that time it started welding together.
