    I have a 1981 BJ42 and a couple months ago I replaced the clutch slave cylinder all has being well untill today, When i release the clutch pedal it dosn't seem to come all the way up, like before when i was losing fluid through the faulty slave cylinder, I checked for leaks and i have lost no fluid. I love my truck but every time i replace or fix something, something else allways seems to happen, I guess this is part of the attraction.

    i know the feeling, my trucks are both coming apart faster than i can put them back together.

    few things to check.

    spring from top of clutch pedal to a pin up under the dash...

    did u bleed the system properly the first time, have you tried to bleed it again to make sure. happened to me first time i changed my clutch master, clutch dissapeared in the middle of traffic.

    could need freeplay adjustment at the pedal, or at the slave. on both (i think) there's a locking nut, unlock then turn the rod (going throught the firewall on the clutch) or the rod on the slave.

    any1 else got any better ideas?
