Question about BMW M Series
COULD BE INCORRECT PEDAL TRAVEL OR NEEDS LINKAGE ADJUSTMENT.
Posted on Aug 08, 2010
Are you using a clutch stop? Try removing it. Any chance the disk went on backwards (at least on my aftermarket clutch
and flywheel combination, the snout went towards the engine)?
The slave effects only the feel, from what I understand. I don't think the piston is longer or shorter to allow a different engagement point, but I am not sure about that. I use a different slave, as specified and supplied by the clutch seller (AA in my case) to make the feel closer to original.
The master is self bleeding, and you have to just pump it for like 30 mintes if it's empty... did you try just pumping it over and over? If you emptied the reservoir, you definitely got air in it. It's also very possible that your master is leaking internally... this could be your whisling sound as well. Try another master if you're sure you've bled it and it does not help.
Any write-up about this...
Finally had a chance to really work on the car tonight. Extended the slave pin until the fork was hitting the pressure plate (barely) and still the clutch was engaged. So, defeated, I resigned to pull the trans. 2 hours later I had everything apart and was looking at the fork.
My camera is dead, but the fork has a bend towards each end (where the pin and pivot ball rest). I don't have my new fork yet, but am assuming that combined with the obvious wear in the dimple could be the cause of my issues (the fork hits the pressure plate before moving the TOB far enough to disengage. If that isn't it I'll know tomorrow night (assuming my fork comes in) and will resign to using the stock flywheel and pressure plate with the UUC clutch disc.
Also, my RB-works scavenge pump (which has no warranty) that failed will be an easy fix. The wire coming off one of the brushes broke off, some solder and a few tricks I've learned from friends who race RC's and the pump should be back up and running (for use around the shop most likely...can pump fluid into things with it).
New fork with a couple washers behind the pivot pin still no luck....Pressure plate is the problem.
I can read on the clutch "gearbox side" which, unless I am mistaken means I installed it correctly...don't know what else it could be but I guess I'll be calling UUC and southbend tomorrow.
