I may have jumped the gun thinking it was the clutch fork pin - in the
past, when I have had disengagment problems, it has usually been the worst
in 1st and reverse gears. This time, however, I first noticed it when going
in and out of 2nd. Upshifting, downshifting. I turned the radio off and
listened closely, and low and behold - a strange squeaky noise is coming
from the tranny when driving in 2nd (that is, once I crunch it into gear).
The tranny was rebuilt by my mechanic about a year and a half ago. Probably
has less than a few thousand miles on it. I believe Moss parts were used in
the rebuild, which made me a little nervous at the time.
So now I think it's the 2nd gear synchro and or the 2nd gear or and/or the
bearings associated with it?
This sucks! I don't know if it's still under warranty even...

Rick----In the event that one's thrust washers should wear to the point
of "dropping out", I think it's still possible to get clutch
disengagement by pumping the pedal. (The piston in the SC will take up a
new position) Let's hope that this is not Ryan's problem!
I don't know how many owners have encountered a broken clutch MC spring,
as Kai found, but it would pay time-wise to check this before pulling
