Re: [DML] Re: Lost clutch

Well, I didn't get as fr as replacing the slave cylinder, didn't have to. You would have won the bet David.  It seems as though a small seal, the one at the very back of the master sylinder had become stuck open.  That's why the system wouldn't pressurize enough to allow the clutch to disengage.  I removed the master cylinder, took it apart and gave it a good cleaning, (I rebuilt it last year so the seals were still in premium condition) and replaced the cylinder.  I then proceeded to run a couple of boottles of fluid thru the system and pressure seems to be holding steady.

As for the bent 2-3 shifter pin and bent 5th gear fork, ugh!  I don't even want to think about that.  That's a realm I'm not sure if I'm ready to dive into.

Anyway, thanks to John Hervey and David T. for there expertise on the clutch matter.

  I am still betting on the clutch master cylinder being the problem. Of
  course we will all know if I am correct if, after replacing the slave
  cylinder, the problem is still there. Let us know. Sounds like you
  have a bent 2-3 shifter pin and a bent 5th gear fork too.
