Hi, > > It should have a spring - at least the earlier ones did (as do > practically all clutch masters). hrm, strange the old one didnt seem to have one, where might it have gone, lol > Good luck bleeding - I hate doing 9k clutch bleeding - they're > worse than a C900, even with a pressure bleeder. i actually bled the clutch in 1 minute, i used a 50 ml syringe, 1 meter of washing fluid pipe and about 25ml of brake fluid, i just opened the bleed valve, opened the brake fluid reservoir and filled it up, when there was almost nothing in the syringe left, the air bubbles stopped coming and i saw the clear liquid coming out. :) the pressure point is in the middle of the pedal travel and all seems fine so far, i will bleed the clutch again when i can get into the workshop tho. > BTW, if you haven't replaced your slave, there's a good chance > it will fail soon :-( They seem to always fail shortly after you > replace the master (maybe it's having new brake fluid in there, > I don't know). well that is okay with me as i probably want to renew the clutch disc too (with an AP one) and if i am unlucky, the transmission too. but maybe the lower motor mounts help, as my problem just happens in 3rd, on right turns :) and the mounts are more than shot! they are not even there anymore :D the previous owner replaced the transmission and clutch ... but maybe he didnt replace the master cylinder, so i am having the opposite of what you told me :) bye simon
