Clutch adjustment help
I have an 04 MSM, I went to do new clutch and flywheel
ACT Heavy Duty Super Street
Exedy 11.9 LBS flywheel.
Also did an OEM rear main seal
All of it new, the problem is, I've driven it a hundred miles or so for break in (I know it's supposed to be 500 for the complete break in period), but I went to get on it a little because I was merging into traffic, and it slipped at 4K.
I read the FM instructions on adjustment (I didn't have anyone to help with the slave cylinder part), and I tried moving the rod out, and I tried it one time and it still slips.
I've read there's supposed to be some free play, and I've read other posts that says there's not supposed to be free play. So I'm unsure.
When I first did the clutch, the pedal release point was closer to the bottom, and I could engage and disengage just fine, and so I left it like that, but that's how it slipped.
I did the adjustment closer to the top, and clutch still slipped, and now almost completely to the top, and it still slipped.
I really don't want to take the transmission out again lol.
