    Default M818 clutch stuck

    I drove my M818 around the block and cut it off. When I cranked it back up to move it, the clutch was stuck engaged, pedal goes all the way to the floor with no pressure. The clutch will not disengage and I have tried adjusting the linkage. Any ideas on what to look for or what may be the problem?

    Disconnect the linkage at the throw out fork and see if the fork moves easily. If it does I suspect something broke in the bell housing.

    Yes, that's an image of my skull.

    I had my pressure plate crack which allowed the disk to stay engaged.

    Moisture and rust will cause a clutch to stick engaged. Depending on the transmission, sometimes the clutch pedal can be depressed, while a pry bar used thru the access plate can free the stuck clutches by prying away from the pressure plate.
