clutch help please

When cold, the clutch is fine. The longer it runs, the worse it slips. Put a new clutch in about 3000 miles ago. I replaced master and slave less than a year ago. After removing the tranny inspection cover, no oil in there.

Seems this started after the last deep water play time. I got busy with other projects and let it set in the garage for the last few months. I was going to pull the tranny again and take a look at things, but I figured I would ask you guys before I waste two days. Could be a slave sticking or something.

Thanks in advance

Could you have adjusted the Clutch master cylinder incorrectly?

This. You need free play at the pedal or it pumps up and does not fully release.

Will give this a shot tomorrow. Very possible I didn't get it right.

If there was a sarcasm button I could push after every one of my posts, that would make it better....

Really though, been working really hard and finishing other projects. Im also taking $100 bucks a week at 22% interest from people lacking teeth. Thats another story though. Hope things are well for you.

Do you generally adjust the pedal distance from the floor per rave or do you do it by "feel"? Is this done by the rod on the nc inside of the box or the screw on the outside?

I do it by feel but that is probably just "Ron good."

I have a similar issue with a clutch "slipping" when my 94 d-90 is warmed up. The clutch acts fine with it is cold. The slipping recently started after the master and slave were replaced. The clutch itself is not that old.

I am curious to know more about the adjustments that can be made as they seemed to solve this issue.

Thanks!
