Clutch...HELP

Recommended Posts

I am doing a five speed conversion on my car and everything is put together...but when i go to push the clutch pedal it feels like there is no resistance like it isnt bled correctly. I just bled the slave cylinder and there were no air bubbles, and it looked good. What did i do wrong, what do i need to adjust???? Please help

Thanks Todd

Yeah, that's normal, sorta.

If it works.

If it doesn't, then it's troubleshooting time.

But we ain't sure you got trouble.

Got clutch function?

The bleeder's pointing down on the slave, right?

I've always had a hard time getting these to bleed the first time,

too-

what seems to work best is to have someone step on the clutch,

you open the bleeder, let it spit, close the bleeder, then let up on the clutch.

That lets air get pumped out.

And it takes quite a few pumps.

THe pressure bleeding didn't work for me on the 5- speed, and

it usually does. Heck, a 4- speed usually bleeds itself.

Did you actually see fluid and air bleed out? I topped my reservoir off twice getting all the air out.

Did you look around and make sure you don't have a spare clutch fork or throwout bearing sitting outside the tranny?

+1 on the 5 speed pedal pushes easier than the old 4 speed did...

Yeah, the nipple points downward-

it's drilled to let air and fluid drain from its top when it's oriented that way.

Not obvious, by any measure, but I think you might have better results

if you reverse it.

Sorry, it's a real pain to do when the trans is in the car.

You could try loosening the fluid fitting just a bit, and see if it'd bleed

that way.
