So I haven't driven my fiero in 2 years, its been in storage. Right now I cannot get it into gear while running, the slave does not start to move till I have the clutch petal half way to the floor. Even if I pump the hell out of it I can't get anymore pressure. The master and slave were new 2.5 years ago with only 1000 miles on them. Is it possible from sitting that the master failed?

You've probably got air in the system. It needs to be bled. My experience is that nine times out of ten, the seal in the slave is what has failed.

Was the new slave you installed a couple years ago a dual-seal one from Rodney? If not... get one!

No it was a OEM GM NOS part. I'll have to order one from him, maybe he'll be at the Dells show this weekend.

Yeah, unfortunately the original single-seal style Fiero clutch slaves are next to useless.

I agree with Patrick. My Master Cylinder was leaking and it was next to impossible to take the cap off to fill it back up. Roney's is a higher quality replacement that is made of Metal.... Not plastic. Plus, the cap is a very easy 1/2 turn and pull. Much better design IMO.
