Default clutch hydraulics in an engine swap application

[color=left=#0c0c0c]So, i think we have a problem, Huston. [/color]

[color=left=#0c0c0c]Setup is a 1999 miata clutch master with a gm slave from a t56. Its one of the hydraulic throwout bearing type slaves.[/color]

[color=left=#0c0c0c]Braided line between the two.[/color]

[color=left=#0c0c0c]We're reasonably certain that the hydraulics are good, and the slave is spaced properly.[/color]

[color=left=#0c0c0c]Im thinking that the stock clutch master is the issue. Flying miata uses a 7/8 v8 roadster clutch master kit in their ls swap cars, which this shares the slave with.[/color]

[color=left=#0c0c0c]Which means that i need to find a 7/8 Clutch master, and it fixes it, right?[/color]

[color=left=#0c0c0c]Is there anything else to look at/check? [/color]

[color=left=#0c0c0c]Clutch master is adjusted now for maximum stroke, and ive run about a quart of fluid through via 2 man bleed, gravity bleed, and reverse bleeding....[/color]

Yes, the bore/fluid volume of the master will need to be properly matched to the slave. Not sure what you were aiming for with colored text but it has not worked.
