It had a new clutch and slave cyl. installed just before we bought it. I'm pretty sure that it has some trapped air in the clutch line somewhere, but from everything I have seen, bleeding the clutch hydraulics is a tricky situation. I think you may have to remove the slave cylinder (which means the trans has to be pulled) to really get all the air out completely. Any comments? -Fred W
