Are the threads stripped in the feeder line? Or is that new also?


Is the clutch peddle hard? Is it possible that the throw out bearing jamed?

Joseph Werner

No it is soft and replaced new clutch and master and slave but i can pump it a couple times but then the line pops out idk if the white sleeve on it is causing this or not

Is the white sleeve plastic and inside the slave cylinders threaded reciprocal? Sorry for the simple questions but it's a bit unusual with what's going on

Joseph Werner

It has a clip on the slave cylinder where the line goes in. The sleeve is supposed to be used for easy take off. Its brand new. The line just keeps popping off the cylinder


I'm going to have to do some research on this. Very unusual.
