I feel your pain. I had to remove and replace the trans in my Camaro more than once due to torque converters:bang
Hang in there brother you'll get her together.:thumbsup:

I hear your pain Jeff. After 300 miles on a brand new wp form the dealer, I have to remove it because of leaking coolant from the weephole. Sometimes life just sucks. Don't give up, just go with the flow. Good luck on the project. Rick

Getting somewhere now.. Master Cylinder was good.. Slave IO bought was bad out of the box.. I returned that yesterday.

I decided my slave was still good.. Got it all set and it still was not right.. I bled it 4 different ways, I finally think I have it almost there, I need to drive it like it is but it is raining so I will wait until later this week. I am thinking my slave may still be bad but once I drive it I will know for sure...

Glad to hear you are making some progress. It should bleed out pretty quick. Did you have to install the modified pivot stud with that clutch assembly?

No I did not need the modified pivot stud for my clutch.. the fidanza flywheel with the stock style clutch (with the sprung hub) is the same stack height as the OEM. The Cutch Hydraulics are the problem, but the Bleeder is at the bottom of the Slave on towards the top like the OE in an 89 or 90, they changed that in 91.

I may switch to the 89-90 Slave if I can find one. liek I said though I need to drive it to be sure it is fixed
