i just installed the new clutch kit and just after i finisned bleeding the slave. i clutched two times to verify slave working. the clutch felt good and all worked fine. all i needed to do was remove the tine spacer. had the wife press in on clutch while i removed spacer and i heard a pop like sound from slave and wife said clutch pedal went soft. shortly after i noticed fluid leaking from slave area.

i've certainly lost the seal. question is, have i done something wrong or was slave bad. at anyrate i'ms certain i need to take it apart again and the spacer is still in the cover plate with splines in. this is good.

any advice welcome here.

thanks, chris.

Take it all out again while it is compressed and rebuild your slave, its over travelled and popped out of its seating/working range, my c900 had done the very same and to get it out without the cover already compressed is a nightmare. I have read of a wat to prevent this but alas cant recall where, sorry
