Ben you need to sell that thing and move on once you get it running. It's sucking your life blood.

At first I thought you were some Noob padding his post count, but you're not, so I have to ask why you think his air filter is sweet?

cause his little turd of an air filter sucks.....


bad news, can't get the clutch to disengage. hydraulics work, line bled fully.

i can ram it in gear if i match the revs, the wheels instant start to spin. Doesn't look like im making the dyno day.

i dont believe the miata slave rod is adjustable on any year. I told scott to go back out and re-flush the whole system and re-bleed it. he was able to get it into gear a little easier after pumping the clutch up.

The rod is adjustable under the dash. I couldn't get my car in gear very well after the ACT Xtreme clutch swap and the first 1" or so of the pedal travel was doing nothing. Loosen the lock nut on the rod attached to the clutch pedal and then torn the rod until there is no freeplay.

takes 2 wrenches, and it's a PITA to get in there.

try this before replacing your slave cylinder.

I had to adjust my ACT up a little after break-in, due to similar symptoms to what you're describing. I've now got my clutch at pretty much the top of the pedal with the minimum specified free play.

and it's an extra PITA with a full cage and aluminum racing seat bolted to the floor- but it has worked miracles for most clutches in my experience

Watch out for that sharp edge on the back of the pedal arm. It will rip your hand big time.
