When installing it were you sure the end of the slave ended up where it is supposed to? Maybe it wasent pushing on the fork & when you pushed in the clutch the end of it blew out??

Hi Randy, i was pouring through these pages looking for an answer to the exact same question you had regarding the slave cylinder. Did you ever find an answer? My son and I replaced the master and slave and had the pedal go to the floor also. Fluid pouring out through the bell housing. Hoping you might have an answer or fix to this?? Also if you would send me an email with your number so i could actually talk to someone that has been through this would be greatly appreciated. We are trying to fix this today. Its his only means of transportation. Thanks so much, Guy Collier 303-916-3329

hi Randy.
I know this is old but I just had the same thing with an internal slave. I've done these before, but now after a week of work, I face dropping the trans again.
I had a bad internal slave, so I went to my brothers house to do the repair.
Once I had it out I decided to get my gearbox serviced, so I dropped it off.

due to excessive wear, 330,000 miles, he sold me a 07 with 30k on it and put it on my transfer case.

I bought a national bearing internal Slave/bearing and put the thing back in, only to have the "quick-disconnect" on the line jam halfway on. unable to finish the install or seperate the parts, I ordered the new line and adapters from advance adapters.

I bleed the slave and it feels right and perfect, NO LEAKS.

I start the jeep and the slave bleeds out and the jeep pulls forward. I now have a severe leak from the bottom of the bell and dust cover.

Now I face dropping the whole thing again.

anyone have advice???
