YJ internal slave cylinder
hey everyone....im still having serious problems w/ my clutch system...ive posted a few time but cant seem to find the soloution. a few months ago my master was leaking inside my jeep and runningdown inside my pan. so, i went and got a new master and no problems...then two weekslater, i pulled into work adn coudlnt get into gear when i went to leave for home. i thought maybe my slave was leaking, so i checked the fluid and it was fine. had a friend tow it home...and i figured since i had to pull the tranny, and i needed another tranny anyways (synchros and major backlash), i ordered a reman from ManTrans in Florida. I also went ahead and put in new pilot bearing, slave cylinder/throwout bearing (all one piece), clutch and pressure plate...so now everything except for the line from the master to the slave is new, and the line is not leaking. Ive bled the system out on 10 or 11 different occasions over the last 3 weeks...and each time it will last anywhere from an hour to 2 days....then leak down and the pedal just goes straight to the floor. I cant see anywhere where fluid is leaking out, but air is somehow getting in?? Has anyone ever heard of such bs? any input would be helpful...maybe even if it applies to another make of vehicle w/ a similar system. Im at my wits end...its all brand new and i really dont wanna drop the tranny again. plz help....thanks in advance.
edit: oh ya, its a 90 YJ Islander, 4.2L, AX-15
