clutch drain plug?

I just replace the slave on my 1988 d 110 rt77

As I refilled the master cylinder and started the bleeding process I noticed the clutch pedal was not building up pressure. I noticed then that fluid was now leaking out the bottom of the clutch housing. (see pic) I hope this is a drain of some sort for the clutch. I did not notice this before or remove it. What is this? This could be the source of my initial problem?


any ideas fellas?

Its the hole where you are meant to put a wading plug in to protect the clutch from water.

if you have fluid coming out your slave is nackered, just don't think putting a plug in will help you.

Still looking for that place where I can carry a paddle and get asked what's that.

And now I know what nackard is, I told my mechanic and he got a good laugh! Sill laughing!


that being said I removed the slave,, rest the piston and re installed .. It working fine now!


Thanks for the lesson in vernacular .. Or should i say VernNACKular.


Cheers!

The wading plug hole is meant to be open unless you put a wading plug in.

That way you know when your clutch fluid is leaking out.
