Re: LT Clutch Cylinder Replacement
Sorry we didn't get to the weep hole demo at CCR, just ran out of time.
The best way to tell if the clutch is slipping is to get up to speed (60 mph or so) and roll on the trottle. If the RPMs go up wilth no acceleration - you have a slipping clutch. Trying to determine slippage at a start from a dead stop has too many variables. If you dump the clutch while turning above 3,500 rpm it will slip a bit until it locks up - all normal. It is always best to get the clutch locked up at a lower rpm (say 1,800) and them hammer it to get away from what ever you are avoiding. First gear is good to 60 mph and it is not how quick you are off the line but how quick you can get the clutch locked up off the line!
