I started up a Tomos Targa LX craigslist find, and immediately hear the most disturbing metal-on-metal noise ever.
I popped off the clutch cover and found the source: It looks like the three metal pins that hold the clutch in place had started to come out towards the cover. I took out the clutch, pushed the pins back in, and filed down the metal carnage as best I could.
Here are pics:
clutch (note the areas filed down where the pins "widened" their holes)
cover (clearly the Craigslist seller ran this thing a while with the pins out)
My question to you is: This is my first Tomos, is the clutch now FUBAR? Is the wear in the clutch cover going to create problems?
Also, the whole transmission is covered in tiny metal fragments suspended in ATF, nice and sparkly! Problem? (edited)
