Tick clutch master cylinder and remote bleeder install review and question

Installed tick master cylinder and remote bleeder this weekend. All in all easy installs once I had the right tools. That means get a inspection camera for the remote bleeder install.

Quality products, remote bleeder came with no instructions so with out the thread on here I would have been F’d. Seriously though, get an inspection camera or don’t bother.

Took forever for me to bleed the master cylinder, mostly because my technique was all wrong. Once I got that figured out the instructions were right on.

So, now my clutch travel is like 4 inches total. The three inches of wasted push at the top and the four inches of wasted push at the bottom are gone. Basically, when I start to push the clutch is engaged to the full push which only like four inches. I adjusted several times to get it to shift into first, and it all works. It will take some getting used to I guess.

Question, is this proper? I drove it around the block, the pedal is firm, shifted nicely. Just really short pedal now.

The pedal travel sounds similar to what mine did after install. There is more fluid flow per inch of travel so it does not need to travel as far.

I hope you have better luck than mine did. It barely made it a year and toward the end i was adjusting it weekly. Mine was one of the pre order 1st generation models. They did not respond when i asked for details.

I got a little ahead of myself. I still have air in the line. Drove to work this morning and my leg is shaky from the force I exerted to push the clutch. Talked to my transmission guy and he laughed at me, says I still have lots of air in there.

So I still don’t know what the new master cylinder is like.

So did another round of bleeding and now the clutch is far more normal feeling. Really have to be patient with the bleeding process.

Drove around town a lot of stop and start. Pedal is stiff, harder than stock.

Anyone use a ligenfelter spring? Does that soften the pedal up a bit?

if I remember correctly, the lingenfelter spring is to help return the pedal and alleviate the "clutch pedal stuck on floor" issue

Your right I did some searching around on threads and that is exactly what it’s for.

I just need to get used to it.

Monster clutch instructions suggest removing the stock spring at the top of the clutch pedal. Was easy to pop off.

Are there two springs on the pedal? After installing the master cylinder I am intimately aware of the spring midway up the pedal.

The only one I know attached on either side of the pivot point.

That the one I know about too. It seems that it aides in pushing the clutch in. I am going to try it without the spring and see how that feels.
