W110 1963 190C transmission

My transmission is acting funny. It is difficult to gety into reverse, although once you get it there, it is fine. I have noticed the clutch will occasionally stay to the floor and all of a sudden come back up. Any ideas?

It seems to me there is a link between the clutch pedal and the shifting function issues.

Do you have a floor shift or column?

Do you have an inside clutch master cyl or outside?

Have you checked the clearance at the clutch fork and slave cyl?

Have you looked at the large rubber bushings on the top or the transmission linkage, if you have a column shift.

If a floor shift, there are also bushings that need to be checked.

Have you checked the fluid level or recently bled the system.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
