Question about 1998 Isuzu Amigo
The throwout bearing fell apart so no doubt it was time for a clutch while I had it apart. I installed the clutch kit and reinstalled the trans but the set up does not look right. when I installed the slave cylinder and bled it, I had constant pressure against the T/O bearing. Is this correct? I followed the manual and assembled the new as I disassembled the old. I had never removed the inspection cover prior to this event so I can't be sure if this is as it should be.
Thanks for your help!
There should be no pressure on the T/O bearing hence why it died in the first place.
I little 'Never Seize' goes a LONG way also.

my rodeo had the same problem i corrected it by bleeding the slave cylinder. and is located on the driver side on the gearbox you will find it if you follow the line from the master cylinder down to the gearbox and if that helps but happens again it might have to be replaced.

SOURCE: manual clutch
Sounds like the wrong pressure plate. I got a kit from Autozone and it was the wrong pressure plate. My old one was obviously thicker. With the new pressure plate, the shift fork was almost at full travel before any resistance. That's no good. I had to pull the transmisssion again and use my old pressure plate. Luckily, it was in good condition. Then, the clutch slack was easily adjusted and works great.

To determine which type of clutch you have, servo hydraulic or cable.
Look down past the engine bell housing and determine the existance of a hydraulic clutch slave cylinder.(a piece of casting with a rod facing towards the rear of the vehicle pocket into a bracket protruding out of the gearbox bell housing. As well as a pipe and bleed nipple to be crude)
(which I believe you have).The hydraulic fluid for this unit is sourced from the brake master cylinder reservoir via a sneaky pipe partially obscured to the clutch master cylinder on the internal firewall.If you have no clutch slave cylinder near the bell housing there would be an obvious bounden cable running from the firewall down to the outer of which will be stopped at a bracket hanging off the engine.The inner will continue to a bracket protruding from the gearbox bell housing.
