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!
