Hey you all....what do you make of this ? my clutch won't fully disengage. When I push the peddal initally down, it seems to work OK. I'll put it in gear, pull away, then loss it to the point where I can't shift the car. I fully bleeded the line with one of those bleeder pump tools, and also did the leverage trick on the clutch arm to get any air out of the slave pump . this is on an 88 Formula. Any suggestions on what I should be looking for will be greatly appreciated. I don't want to replace anything I don't need. Thanks beforehand.
Although slave cylinders are prone to failure, I've had an equal number of master cylinder failures as well. Check for leakage around the master because those seals can and often do leak. Also if your clutch is disengaging near the floor, Rodney's adjustable banjo can give you a better release. Purists will argue all day long it's not needed in a properly working system, but after 30+ years none of our systems are 100% up to spec and a little adjustment on the banjo can make the system work better.
Ok everybody.....Its my slave cylinder. I popped the boot, and man....did a lot of fluid come out. So today I just ordered Rodney D's new cylinder, and can't wait to get it. Now hopefully all the bolts will come lose and the job will go smoothly. Wishfull thinking, huh ?
