    Hi All,
    I am just at a loss as to what may be wrong. I had my clutch redone
    and I bought a new cable and throwout bearing. I installed everything
    and I cannot seem to disengage the cluth to put the car in gear. If
    anyone has had this experience and knows what I am doing wrong your
    help and advice will be GREATLY appreciated. One thing that I was
    advised was to reposition the "triangle" but that did not help.

    I can tell you that the fork seems to travel to almost half way
    before I can feel the throwout bearing touch the pressureplate is
    that normal?? When I do step on the clutch it seems you have to be
    Hercules to get it to go down any.

    Another problem I am havibg is that after rebuilding my master
    cylinder I have fluid leaking out the back by the boot..any
    suggestions??
    Thanks,Keith
    62 and I am blue!
