I bought a pair of pd130 estates today and one has a gearbox or clutch issue. 

Thing is the clutch pedal feels normal it isn't stiff or on the floor. 

Gear select feels good and can see all the rods moving on the gearbox when i select gears. 

Does this sound like a clutch issue to you guys or gear select issue?

If it was the clutch i'd expect to at least have issue selecting gears or some kind of grinding but it is silent.

Just feels like selecting thin air.

Any suggestions before i rip the gearbox out in the next few days.

What's the actual issue?
No drive?

Yep no drive what so ever.   Press the clutch and put in gear and nothing happens.  Depress the clutch in gear and nothing...  pedal feels like a working clutch.  No grinding.  ??

Friction plate worn smooth would be my guess.
