Re: [DML] Clutch

I had both go south on me during my road trip, the master in CA and the slave in Fla.  I take it you have checked your fluid level and it has enough?  I found that the rubber grommets in some masters were not properly installed and leak where the reservoirs were plugged into them.  Hervey has a master that has been rebuild with a stainless steel sleeve.  This is what I installed.  Hopefully the master will last longer now and the price was comparable.  He also has a long bleeder screw for the slave that makes it easier to bleed.  I did not get this since I've gotten good at working by feel!  Check inside your firewall and stuff some paper towel around where the clutch shaft comes through.  That is where I found the leak on my master.  Made a mess too!
Good luck!

Check the fluid level in the bottle and check for leaks at all of the connections, but it you don't know how old they are replace both. Flush every 2 years with new fluid.
