    Default Clutch Help

    after replacing slave cylinder and whole clutch set and bleeding it to where the clutch would squirt when depressed but nothing after it was depressed then doing it again and agian until it stopped sputtering and was a solid stream as i depressed the clutch. after the clutch doesnt fully disengage and goes int first roughly.. either grinding the gear or thunking into gear. clutch alll the way to the floor and in first the jeep still rolls.. i dont get it.. what did i miss or not know..

    ok so i bled it again but i really have never bled a clutch before.. guess i was spoiled with a non hydraulic clutch all my life.. i dont know what its supposed to do or be like.. is it supposed to only squirt fluid when depressing fluid or is it supposed to still be squirting as its completely depressed and held.. any help?

    after thought i forgot to to put the important facts.....

    Have you thought past the clutch and considerd that it may be the trans?

    Yo mention installing a new clutch?
    If you install it with the springs facing the flywheel it will engage at all time. The springs need to be facing the trans. for a correct install.
    Also did you check the trow out bearing and linkage?

    NOTE The clutch disc shows springs in both side, But one side the springs bulge out more
    That side needs to face the trans.

    you need to close that bleeder screw before the pedal gets all the way to the floor or it wont be right
