need help

i just installed a new clucth master cyclinder last night bleed it following the directions had a good pedal. Drove it down the road and the pedal goes to the floor will pump back up and go alittle further and goes to the floor again. I checked the line where it goes into the master cyclinder and slave cyclinder dry no leaks. Could i have got a bad new master cyclinder or what?

nope..been there done that bud. I installed the slave cylinder. Thought all was good, got on freeway, exited 40 miles later, and pedal to the floor. Talk about a fun 5 miles to home...bust'n red lights, creep'n the hills...ya, way fun.

Your best bet is to buy / order an already "pre-bled" assy..master / slave assy. Rock Auto for 130 buks, and be done with it.

To answer the ?, you still have air in the assy.
