Hydraulic woes!!!

Postby Chug » Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:59 pm

So here is my issue,
I'm swapping a Isuzu 5spd into my Indy, in place of the TH125. I got the trans, flywheel, clutch, pressure-plate, shifter, cables and throw-out bearing from a running car. I bought the "Early Clutch Master" and Isuzu 5spd Slave from Rodney. New lines from Fiero Store and a pedal assembly from Ebay. After putting it together I am having a problem getting the clutch to release enough to be able to put into gear. I have bled, bled and bled some more, there is no air in the system, checked the pedal that it does throw all the way before touching the floor. I have a Ram clutch kit on order from Fiero Store. I'm just wondering if I have missed something or done something wrong or put the wrong parts together? If anyone sees a problem with anything listed please let me know!!!

Hey Chug,

As I know you got this fixed, do you want to share what the solution was?

Could I guess that the banjo pushrod for the master cylinder was turned upside down? That's a common mistake for anyone who is dealing with the Fiero master cylinder for the first time.

no Fierofool, I had tried connecting it both directions to no avail. I ended up shimming in the slave to allow for a complete release of the clutch to be able to change gears. I have since drove it from Jacksonville to Milwaukee to Peoria and back without issue (besides the coolant hose that sprung a leak)
