I have a '95 Chevy C1500 Pickup. It began to get hard to get into low and reverse gear, made a grinding noise. Found wear at the clutch pedal likage to master cylinder, so I replaced both master and slave cylinder. Problem got substanially worse so I removed clutch and found wore out clutch fork and piviot ball. Replaced clutch assy, fork, and piviot ball. Put all back together and still grinds. Only getting 5/8" travel at clutch slave cylinder. GM spec is at minium an inch of travel.
I have tried to bench bleed the master and slave cylinder, bleed by pumping pedal and opening bleeder screw, removing actuator from transmission and compressing the actuator to force air up through master cylinder, but cannot get any more than 5/8 stroke. The pedal does not have a normal feel as well. Is there some special/better way to bleed the system?
have the same problem?
