Clutch not releasing.....85K
I just helped a friend replace his clutch, pressure plate, disc and slave cylinder as the slave was leaking and the vehicle was crawling forward. The springs in the disc were also rubbing on the pressure plate?? It is now hard to get in gear and the pedal engages the clutch right at the floor board. The pedal seems fairly firm all the way to the floorboard...it is almost like wow if the pedal would only go another 1/4" everything would be perfect. Bled the system several times to no avail.
I took the master cyl off.. no external leaks, but it it is etched inside the bore...not sure where to go from here...put 80w 90 GL5 back in the tranny and was told there was some controversy on this particular fluid
How do I identify the tranny? it is a 5 spd with the fill holes on the driver side(left)and has the internal slve cyl.
What oil should I use?
Any suggestions on getting a little more travel on the clutch?
Any help would be appreciated
