Fred,

What he's referring to is a valve, actually a port, in the master cylinder which allows it to recover fluid from the reservoir. It also ensures that there is no residual pressure on the slave.

Later,

David and Jim,

Thanks for that info on the return port. Now I understand more clearly the point that you are making. This would indeed initiate the problems that I am experiencing. So later today I'll examine this possibility further!! Will get back with the results.

Fred

Default JIM YOU DID!!

Jim,

You did explain it that way! I just didn't understand it that way, until later when David brought it up again. I'm on my way to the shop to get a spring to try. Will then have a 20 mile ride home and should know a little more later. I will try to explain the results so that you both will understand me!

Fred

Default SO FAR SO GOOD

Jim and David,

Preliminary results seem favorable. Tomorrow I'm going to install the clutch pedal spring in a more favorable and permanent position. Need to make a couple of drill holes, one on the pedal and one on the flat plate on the top of the drivers well. Here's hoping...Thanks for coming to the aid of a rookie!!

Fred

Default Great Resource

This was a really old thread but there was a piece of gold with the NAPA part number for the slave cylinder, thanks guys! My slave cylinder is toast and I could not find a Wagner Lockheed, now I have a $35 part coming my way from NAPA...
