Question about Cars & Trucks
Drove car home with new gear box and was told by mechanic to change the master cylinder..he adjusted the mas cyl push rod away from the firewall to full extent on the old cylinder and i had clutch engagement toward fire wall but car was driveable..sooo i got new slave and new mas cylinder installed and bled strut bleeder as well as slave bleeder (mostly) got hard pressure with cyl pushrod far away from firewall..car starts but doesnt engage..the full clutch pressure isnt there and ive bled both cylinders going back n forth between the two to see if the new mas cylnder faild ..any clues hints..been bleeding for days now
Did you take all the adjustment out that the mechanic adjusted into the push rod? With a new master cylinder, it may be adjusted so far out that the clutch is always disengaged. Try adjusting the push rod back to its initial setting.

SOURCE: a new clutch, slave cylinder,
Have you checked that the slave cylinder is attached firmly where it's supposed to be? Have you refilled the bowl of the master cylinder with braking fluid? And finally have you bled the circuit thoroughly after that?

SOURCE: i just replaced the clutch
it is possible that the bearing has jammed or dislodged when u fitted box,which has depressed the clutch-try looking through starter motor hole im a mech of 30 yrs and its happend to me on a few ocasions-i feel for u as the box will have to come back out
