    Oh I believe there were!.. Just doubtful they wer full throttle ones... Why? Malfunctioning clutches like to stay on the floor with higher revs

    my clutch is finally fixed.... and here's what it was
    the hose was too small of inner diameter. The way I diagnosed this was I put my inspection camera on it then watched how the slave cylinder moved. I noticed pretty quickly that, despite my pedal being at the floor, the slave cylinder was still moving (meaning there was excess pressure). So I went 2 sizes larger and it's firm, but not a burden.
    The final tally is 7/8" slave, 7/8" master, 3/16 stainless line. The pivot point is just below the stock pivot point because I needed more travel to get full travel - with that said, if I'd simply used the GM pivot point on the pedal, it would have worked fine. I know I'll have some fine adjustment, but at least now it fully disengages and gives enough travel to make the clutch work well.

    it's already slotted, just not wide enough. I did think about it, but figure it's more strength this way... plus, it's a stockish clutch, so it's not exactly hard to engage.

    yes, it's time to move onto other projects.... plus, very first post I said I was going to sell this one; it just took a bit longer than I was planning.
