There is your answer at worst at best you need to open up and see if the thrust bearing is still alive.

I'm not sure I understand exactly.

Does the pedal move but the clutch does not disengage or is the pedal stuck?

Seems to be a common problem with the GT40 crowd after a cold, damp winter, with a sintered metal clutch, and IIRC they put it in 1st or reverse, whichever direction is clear, then bump it with the starter, and that usually breaks it loose.

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

Worth a try but....I've found that to work about 1/2 the time. The other half required the clutch to be disassembled and cleaned. Luckily on a 308 pullin the clutch is only a couple hour job.

Yes Mike not only does the pedal move I put it in gear and it goes nowhere.
Engine revs with no load and also i can put it in gear with out pushing the pedal in. I can look in the timing hole and I can even see the pressure plate move away from the disc.

This doesn't sound good. i think your next step is to disassemble. But hey, i was wrong on the engine. Good luck!

wetpet was right

Yes you were. I had 4 bent exhaust valves.
Clutch was dismantled and also found the disc was rusted on the p/plate or flywheel forgot which one.

Pistons

pistons were hardly touched lucky there.
after 60k there were hardly any carbon build up.
F Y I the machine shop order valves out of L A from s P I for 38$ apiece not bad. This morning starting to pull new vac, heater hoses.
