I just bought this car and the clutch travel was very short but still worked fine. I found that the clutch master cylinder was leaking fluid so I replaced the clutch master cylinder and I now have to much travel. Before I replaced the cylinder the clutch would start grabbing almost right off the floor. After replacing the cylinder it now starts grabbing about much closer to the top. I did not bleed the slave cylinder after the install as it seemed to be ok. Could air in the slave cylinder or line cause this problem? Is there a clutch cable that can be adjusted to decrease the clutch travel? It shifts fine with only 1/2 the travel it now has. I have also noticed that now it does not want to stay in 3rd gear if you depress the clutch all the way down. If you only press the clutch down 1/2 to 3/4 of the way it stays in 3rd gear fine. I would greatly appreciate your expertise in this matter. Thank you in advance.
have the same problem?
