[DML] Re: Clutch Problem

Because of the difficulty involved with getting to the clutch slave
cylinder it is recommended it be replaced whenever replacing the
master cylinder. Not only is it difficult to replace the slave
cylinder, it is also difficult to bleed it properly. Bill R's
procedure is about the best it gets. Unless you are taking off the
intake manifold it is done from underneath (or on top as per Bill R).
This is EXACTLY why when you are working on one thing you do another
just because it is so easy to do. Doing the slave cylinder is usually
a very simple job but on a Delorean, because of it's location, it is
difficult. I would also recomend going to the braided metal line so
you won't have to go in this area again. At least not for 2 years. You
should change the clutch fluid every 2 years so you don't have to
replace the cylinder. A real good invention would be a remote bleeder
for the clutch slave cylinder. It wouldn't take much, just a fitting
in place of the bleeder screw, a piece of tubing to a remote fitting
with a plate on it to mount it, and a bleeder screw. This would make
bleeding the clutch much simpler. Maybe one of the vendors will take
this idea up?

extremely loose.  I still have the original stiff clutch.  When I
press on the pedal it feels like a normal loose clutch, found in
today's cars, for about 75% of the way.  The remaining quarter of the
way, it feels like it should.  It won't go into gear all the time, but
will sometimes.
