    I seem to have a problem since I had my 30 thousand service done. I have difficulties shifting into reverse when the car is hot the gears won't stop spinning (for reverse), but I have no problem with the forward gears. Any Ideas?
    Is the clutch bad?

    Does anyone have any procedures on clutch replacements on 3.2 mondial 88?

    There's a rubber gasket where the linkage goes through the tranny. It goes bad and causes a misalignment. It's an age problem.

    Try to put out the air of the slave cylinder of the clutch.

    Thanks for the replies.
    When shifting into reverse, the lever is being pushed down in fact you can get into 1,2,or3 no problem, but push the lever down and push up and get gear grind.
    Also my linkage seals were just replaced 500miles ago with the 30,000 service.

    Does anyone have any step by step instructions on bleeding the slave cylinder? or any other thoughts on whats going on?
