I got the correct cap and bleed rebleed the system multiple times. I still had a low but functional pedal. When I test drove the truck to see if it was good enough to take to shop to try a bleed with better equimpment. I got alot of slippage in the clutch. It will run good for a while then lunge. Letting go of the gas pedal seems to correct the problem. At least enough for me to get back home. I inspected the system as an assiatant pressed the pedal and it seems to be moving forward but just take a long stroke to get to the clutch spring plate. The clutch and spring plate looked fine when they where removed. I also got a bit of smoke from around the transmisioon area after the test run. I thought it may have been due to the debris burning off the catlitic converters. (Since they had been removed for quite some time) Thinking now the srping plate or clutch itself must be bad. Maybe I installed it backwards? I check it several time to make sure not to do that but maybe?
Any ideas with the new information?
