I just got through replacing my clutch, pressure plate and slave with a Luk clutch kit. (it's an internal slave so I had to remove the transmission, etc) After lots of work I got it put back together and my worst fear has come through: It doesn't work
Here's what's happening:
I bled the slave and it feels firm, although I'm not sure I bled it well enough (there's still a few bubbles that show up occasionally).
I can shift through the gears and the pedal feels OK.
However, when I start it and shift into gear, nothing is engaging the flywheel (ie. no power sent to transmission...car doesn't move)
My thoughts are:
1. I didn't bleed it well enough or I'm doing it wrong. I went through 3/4 bottle of brake fluid, refilling the master cyl. after ever 2 pumps or so. Still seems like there's air in it maybe?
2. The Luk kit said specifically not to break the strap on the slave cyl, that it'll break on it's own. Seemed odd....but I followed that instruction.
3. What else could I have done wrong? (someting installed wrong? I'm a noob...) Can't come up with anything else because it seems pretty straight forward.
Help from my fellow Jeepers?
