Not enough slippage to stop me getting out but enough to make it so I only just got out. Here is an example, massive slip in the last 10 seconds or so.

So that wasn't you revving the engine, that was clutch slip?

No, mine doesn't do that. You can see the snatch go slack as I drive out & up the bank. I was also rocking the car back & forwards heaps at the start & no slip then either

I've been meaning to check if mine has an cover over the inspection hole in the bellhousing. I know Dulagarl was wanting to put one on his...

Well I was trying to drive out causing the revving but the clutch was fully released and the wheels were not spinning.... Not a good feeling.

It is more caused by water coming in through the bottom of the bell housing and there is a large hole there with an exposed spinning starter gear which just sucks water mud and what ever else in.

Are you talking about the bottom inspection port or the top timing one. You can get a sealed cover for the top one but the bottom one I dont think you can.

Here is an engine without the bottom cover fitted


and here is and engine with it fitted


However this cover is not a water tight seal and still has a big hole with just the teeth of the fly wheel exposed which pump water in.

All manual sfs had this cover all auto ones didnt as far as I know. Mine certainly has it and it does not help...

Yeah I think thats the cover but I didnt realise it still had a hole in it. I knew its not water tight, I can just barely see mine next to the crossmember & its had crap flushing out.

That was the only thing I could think of why I dont get ANY clutch slip even when repeatedly using the clutch while its under. Even when it had been submersed for ~5min I had to depress the clutch to drive out & still no slip

I have blocked the bottom hole on mine now so it is better. This was as much to try keep crap out of the starter motor as anything (hasnt worked)

That video I selected reverse when I stopped moving forwards and then straight away selected forwards again. Not what I would call a massive amount of shifting. I have also had slight slip (more a delay to engage) after a short crossing with no clutch usage, just changing gear on the exit when out of the water. I am very intrigued why you didnt get any... weird.
