Another clutch question

Last year I put in a new Master Clutch because the original one was leaking on my foot. Everything was fine until four weeks ago when all of a sudden my clutch was gone. I had no fluid. I managed to get her home and filled the Master and bleed the clutch and things were okay for about two weeks but slowly the clutch was getting worse yet I still had fluid.

I replaced the Slave on Saturday. I had a great clutch again!!!!! Worked like it should. By this morning you could push the pedal half way down before it disengaged and she started moving up as soon as you raised the clutch off the floor. Just bleed the clutch again and it is better but I have a problem somewhere. I can't for the life of me find a leak.

Any ideas????

Michael

Well its got to be going somewhere. And there definitlely is not a slow leak coming down the clutch pedal to the floorboard and you don't see a leak from the line that connects the master to the slave....that is weird. I can't think of any other places it can go?

I am wondering if I have a slow leak some place in the line that is somehow letting air in and dripping on the converter and burning off. which is why I don't see fluid anwhere. Pedal worked great yesterday after being bleed Tuesday. We'll see today.

The seal could have failed and you are simply not getting compression, just moving fluid from one side of the plunger to the other. I had a new MC completely fail in 2 months or so. New one seems to be holding up fine.
