My Car goes in to the dealership next Monday the Syncro and rings are going in

a few week wait but they are in.. I hope they get this work done with out making things worse..

But we will see..

Then off to Jannetty Racing for the New improved IdealG Master Cylinder and some get gone parts..


Will update once the car is back, not that I expect any improvement with the syncro and rings but worth the warranty work I hope to not make it worse or add new issues.

-Roger

Well.. IT WORKS! Finally got back into town to get this thing bled properly. The first time around I didn't get all the bubbles out. The shifting still sucked and I was still grinding.

I hooked up a 1/4 inch clear hose I got from HD. Fed it into a clear bottle. Turns out I did have some air left over. I bled several more times until I got 0 bubbles.

Now the short throw shifter goes like butter. Did some heavy accel with powershift and NO Grind. Lost traction between shifts. I forgot how much fun that was I could never do that with my car before bc of the nasty grind. Money well spent.

I did mine on jackstands. Not all that bad if you don't mind the tight quarters getting to the bleeder. Definitely would have been easier with a remote bleeder though. I actually thought changing the master was worse requiring more patience wrenching out the long bolts.

Bleeding it is the hardest part because its hard to get to the bleeder.
yes it can be done but bleeding will be a little more difficult laying on your back.

I have the complete 2011 GM service manual and they use a mityvac with 51-68 kpa of vacuum to pull the bubbles out. Is it ok to do it this way. I can get a mityvac for about $100. Thanks

Yes sir. You can do it that way. It will suck all the air up and out through the reservoir.

Seperate reservoir mounting

I've installed a Seperate clutch reservoir in Redirish's car. I just want to show everyone where i mounted it so its clean looking and out of the way and you can use your factory epdm hose.

There no need for any brackets anywhere it mounts nicely on the inside of the fender.

I like the separate reservoir, where do I get it and how much? Also, how are you capping off the line to the brake reservoir when using it?

Thanks Jerry

Jerry did a great job on my car! He installed the separate reservoir and changed the brake/clutch/rear/tranny fluids. The Trans/clutch feels more responsive and smoother.
