Re: Possible Clutch Slave failure
Once the clutch friction plate is contaminated, it has to be replaced. It may be possible to throughly clean one with solvents and dry it, but all the work to remove it has to be done anyway, so not worth the risk to try and re-use a fouled friction plate in my opinion. Too much work to replace it again if it does not work.
When you do replace it, also replace both front and rear transmission input shaft seals as they have been in contact with brake fluid, and while in that far, replace the engine rear seal and O-ring.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
