clutch peddal adjustment or bleeding?
 
The 1st time I hit the clutch peddal after not using it for 5-10 min. the peddal goes to the floor like its not connected, but works fine after that. I've bleed the clutch 4 times & it hasn't changed. Is there an adjustment on the clutch peddal or is there a special way to bleed it? Or do I have to replace the master cylinder. Is there a rebuild kit available for the master cylinder? money is tight. If it cannot be fixed inexpensively I will have to live with it.

ur going to have to deal then sounds like a weak slave to me and that requires u to pull the tranny

Master cylinder was $69.99 at Advance Auto yesterday. Rebuild kit was about $40.00.
I opted for the new master. Working well, here's a link to my bleeding procedure;

Not sure about the O/P's model year, but the M/C is a lot easier to try first than the 87-90 4.2L's internal slave. Especially if the slave isn't leaking.

yeah and i was talking to him yesterday and he said he already replaced it. so ur most likely right about the master. but he said their was a loop in the hose that conects to the slave so i thought maybe the loop was the culprit.

That rubber section, might be peeling away inside, causing it to plug up.

(Not sure if a loop would hurt it as long as it wasn't kinked.)

I thought mine might be doing that,(plugging up) but the new M/C cured it. Looking around for a replacement line, I found this;
Jeep Parts, Jeep Accessories & Jeep Soft Tops From The Jeep Parts Experts - Quadratec

They list it as being for a 4 cylinder. An E-mail to them said it might work for a six cylinder too, but they couldn't guarantee it.

I may try to find out if they lines were different between the different engine options.
