clutch master cylinder

put a new master cylinder in the yj last weekend, no longer leaking inside , but the clutch pedal has no pressure sometimes...i can pump it and the pressure builds fine, only thing I see that loses the pedal is if I let the clutch pedal come all the way to the top hard. I am 99% sure I have no air in the line...bled it, bled it some more, gravity bled it, bled it again..get my drift. I can drive all day as long as I don;t let the clutch pedal come up hard and I never lose pressure. Is there a spring or adjustment to the pedal? I have adjusted to driving it as it only takes 1 pump of the pedal to have all the pressure back again. I'm leaning on a bad MC, clutch works fine, no grinds, no leaks..I'm at a loss, its a jeep, so i drive it until something really needs to be fixed

SN...removed the track bars, noticed a little difference, not the Cadillac ride some describe, but better none the less, I left the sway bar on as i drive 26 miles a day on interstate...+1 for free upgrades

88YJ, 3 inch life 33x12.50 MT MTZ 93 4.0 swap 5spd, I'm not sure if the tranny and xfer case are from the 93

How old is your slave cylinder. If it was more than a few years old the greater pressure in the MC probably is killing the seals in your slave
