Question about 1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata
The one item I would suspect is the through-out-bearing not completely
disengaging the pressure plate from the fly wheel. If the vehicle is in neutral
and you slowly depress the clutch and release it do hear a singing or whining
sound? Since you cannot adjust the clutch any more the through-out-bearing is
the component which moves the pressure plate from the fly wheel to stop the
power from the engine to the transmission. It is difficult to shift when the
engine is on because the fly wheel is still engaged and powering your transmission.

Sounds like the seal in the new clutch master cylinder. I've seen that same problem in the hand brake system in small 2 and 4 seat airplanes. ( I'm and aircraft mechanic) The problem is not air in the lines so bleeding won't help. The piston seal is intermittantly failing to seal. That is whty the function can return without any apparent reason as the seal has seated itself. The only cure is to replace or rebuild the master cylinder. ( Yes, even new or rebuilt ones can have a defective or improperly installed piston seal)
Hope this helps

You bleed the brakes afterward. If you but a Hayne's Manual for your specific car, it will give you detailed instructions on how to change them. It will show step by step procedures. Also, if you ask an expert, they can give you step by step procedures until the job is done properly. Sorry I couldn't help more.
