Free play on Clutch Slave Cylinder changing?

Postby FV80 » September 27th, 2019, 3:14 pm

Hey guys. Although I've been racing FV for over FORTY YEARS, I've never before used a clutch master/slave setup.. always used a CABLE. Now I have a car with a master/slave setup and after each session the free play is changing. After my first test day, I changed the slave cylinder to a brand new one, but still the same problem. I wonder if I'm just not bleeding things properly or if this is a common problem? I'm using same engine/clutch from my 'cable car' that almost NEVER needed adjusting, but now finding ~1/2" free play after only 2 sessions on the car, when it was marginally TIGHT before the first session.

Just me??

Steve, I'm glad you got this resolved. Odd that it was coming apart.
