Slave cylinder/ clutch

Post by 888GoldDragon »



I replaced and cleaned slave cylinder(dirty), flushed out old fluid. Road for about 2 days, then the it would just give out and spin no grab to clutch. Thought I didn’t clean enough or had air bubbles. Took apart again. Made sure everything was cleaned and greased in the right spots. Changed master cylinder rubber gasket. Ran great for 2 days, great response, great torque. Then cluthch just started spinning again. I’m not loosing any clutch fluid. What did I miss? What else can it be?

If you mean the clutch is slipping. You probably have a clogged return hole in the master cylinder. It is very tiny and might be covered by a metal tab. A small wire can clean it out. Of course you may find enough crud to warrant rebuilding the master, too.
