how far should your slave cyclinder travel to disengage your pressure plate, the one on my 1985 chevy 1/2 ton only moves about a inch or less?
how can you tell if your pressure plate is bad, i have been trying to bleed this d*** thing for over a month and still can not get any pressure built up tried everthing accept switching to auto trans
I dont want to make you sound like an idiot but did you put fluid in the clutch master cylinder? I have seen a few occasions where folks havent looked at the master cylinder for the clutch. They look at the one for the brakes and think that its full. Anyhow, I replaced the one on my truck about 3 months ago and it bled quite easily. My clutch pedal moves about 1 1/2 inches for full engagement. I dont know if that helps but?
From what I have found with mine and a couple of quarts of brake fluid after bleeding just work the pedel back and forth slowly with the cap off this will bubble out air it is slow but mine now works fine let us know how it turns out!
i put atleast three pints of fluid through this thing to get it bleed,changed the slave cyclinder twice,thought it might be a bad one from napa. still the same. the pedal is real soft and only travels a inch or less also changed the master one on top.
could it be the pressure plate?
I wouldn't think so just woek the pedel I'm telling you I replaced mine pressure plate clutch and master cyl on fire wall and still the same thing just work pedel slowly lots of times and have someone look for air in resovor when it stops working out air your pedel will come up (when I say work slowly I mean with the bleeder closed)
