Clutch and slave

I just completed a 300 TDI and R380 conversion and I cannot get the clutch to work properly. From what I can read the correct slave should be ftc 5072 and push rod should be ftc 3912 based on it being an earlier batch of the R380. I have gone back and forth between the 5072 and what I believe to be a 5202. I have the 5199 push rod but add and subtracted length trying to find some combo that woks. Problem I am having is either the clutch won't disengage or it slips. I cannot find any point in between. I have made adjustments to the pedal box as well. Driving me insane, anyone have any input please?

What clutch release bearing did you put in? There is a short and long one. Perhaps causing a problem?

Bob:

Small point, but make sure the bleed nipple on the SC is "up"....can't tell you how many times I've seen it the other way, which obviously would cause the system to not bleed properly and would/could cause spotty clutch issues.

There's no way the friction plate could be in backwards? Ask me how I know about that problem.... With a standard setup that would prevent disengagement.

Sounds like a bad slave, or free play adjustment

So update on this. I replaced the master and slave so they are matched. I have the correct push rod that fits in without putting pre load on fork. I also used a flexible camera and scoped around inside the bell housing and everything on the inside is in order. I have adjusted pedal out as far as it will go on the master. Bleed screw is in the up position. I have a completely firm pedal but clutch still will not disengage. At a total loss here.

Clutch in backwards or wrong throwout bearing?
