X2. The second time I did it was much easier.

First and only time was not that hard. You guys scared me into thinking it was a job.

Ordered the slave cylinder, soft line, and clutch pedal spring from George (RDS) today. After explaining the symptoms he immediately suggested the Master cylinder was the culprit. But I'll try the easiest and cheapest first and see what's involved with a MC replacement and maybe order that in the near future (MC @ $100 w/ shipping).

RN has clutch master cylinder fluid and it's DOT 4. I've been topping off with DOT 3. I could swear the MC Cap said use DOT 3. What's right?

If you've been using DOT3 fluid you'd better replace the whole system (get that master cyl). You must use the DOT 4 or better synthetic, preferably Castrol GTLMA or lucas. Other fluids will contaminate the rubber parts and they will fail (swell and turn to mush) Flush the hard line out. You don't want any of the DOT3 fluid in there.

Found fluid leaking down the clutch pedal so I guess its official....MC is bad. Guess I'll call George and order it Monday. It was dumb not to order it with the Slave and soft line. WIshful thinking I guess.

Why did I tell to replace all? (I started the same way)
Flush the line before you put in the new parts. Otherwise you might get the same problem because of small debris being in the line...
