Bad clutch slave cylinder?
Ok, so I did a bit of searching before I posted this, and I have a vague idea of what "may" be wrong with my car, but I'll give you guys the full scoop and hopefully I can get this resolved by the end of the weekend. Here's my story:
Swapped a TII engine/driveline/the works with a very experienced friend of mine into an NA chassis. Swap went off without a hitch, the car started fine on the first try. During the swap, we installed a RB 9.5 flywheel, to match the ACT S/S clutch I already had in the turbo car the engine came from. There is approximately 10-12k miles on that clutch. I will mention now that prior to the engine swap, everything worked fine on the TII engine/driveline/etc. No problems whatsoever. Today I finally finished hooking up the driveline from the TII and installing the rear subframe, had everything ready to go, but the car won't shift in to gear. Here is the following sequence of events...
1) Car won't shift gears with motor off
2) Bled the clutch(slave?) screw on top of the tranny with socket wrench, lots of air, clutch fluid "black as my soul"
3) Car would shift roughly(sorta) with motor off, but not with motor on
4) Installed speed bleeder, bled same screw, lots of air
5) Noticed improved pedal pressure, shifts with motor off, still would not shift with motor on BUT would cause the car to inch forward when attempting to shift into 1st
6) Bled 2x more times, no air at all the 2nd time, clutch fluid is now clean instead of the death black when the entire process was began.
So what's this spell guys? Are we bleeding it correctly? Are my master/slave cylinders dead? Mind you, they worked PERFECTLY before the swap. I'm at a loss. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance!
