Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Congratulations on the motor- those heads looked amazing!

You've hit on two of the issues with the clutch-

- worn release mechanism
- faulty clutch disk

Unfortunately, both require pulling the drivetrain.

Before you do that, there are a couple of things you might try.

- Of course you know of the adjust bolt...it's a square head bolt on the side of the transmission.
- Roll back the slave cylinder rubber gasket and have a friend slowly push in the clutch. Movement from clutch pedal to slave should be immediate. If not, bleed the slave just to make sure there are no bubbles. The best way is to pressure bleed it. I use an old master cylinder cap with an air fitting.
- If that doesn't help, try removing the little vented cover held on with two screws. You may be able to see in there with a light if there is wear in the mechanism when the clutch pedal is pushed in.

Otherwise... there may be a drivetrain pulling party in your future.
