    Default Clutch not disengaging - bled but struggling with settings

    69 series 2a 109 -- I replaced my master/slave/flex line last year. Ever since, I have been unable to nail the proper pedal and slave setting. I've bled it, reverse bled it & It seems like there isn't any air.

    I can start it in 1st with the clutch pedal down and it seems to operate to as it will move forward as I release the clutch and apply gas - same for reverse. But if started out of gear it will not go into gear and just grinds. Which leads me to believe the plate isn't stuck.

    I've got the green bible and have been trying to set the pedal and slave but am either totally dislexic or something is not right.

    Here is a folder of pics of where things are set and a video showing how far the connecting shaft moves - doesn't seem to be moving enough, but I think it's at the full length of the rod throw from the slave.

    I've read countless forums and am just totally stuck. Any help would be great.

    The site hole in the bell housing shows this when clutch applied -- https://www.dropbox.com/s/3ziidxlmaj...33.14.mov?dl=0

    i didn't read thru all this (again) but is the pedal firm? sometimes it's notoriously hard to get the air out. with hydrostatic the pedal will be firm from the top down, a most steady force to be applied, no soft then firm feelings. ?

    Did the pedal movement and clutch connecting arm seem like It was going far enough in the video? I ordered an alignment tool and am probably going to separate the transmission this weekend to see if that's the culprit

    i ran my clutch master cylinder low the other day. I filled it but what air in there is slow to work its way out but since it still works ok i'm not crawling in the snow and mud to deal with it occurs to me that if the pipe to the slave has ANY high spot in it, a air bubble in there may not be easy to flush out. the next time i'm under there i'll insure the pipe hasn't been altered (hit by tree limb etc) I also thought woring the clutch while on a steep hill (both directions) could help dislodge air. this may be worth a effort?

    I pulled the clutch today to check to see if it was frozen - it wasn't. So your advice is probably spot on. Are you saying the rod on the slave is set wrong or the pedal?

    i haven't worked on that model before BUT, it just looks like minimal movement and that the cylinder is too exposed to yes, either a adjustment or perhaps even the rod is the wrong length... ? hard to believe but either way I'd check the extremes and see how far either way by whatever means it could be adjusted ... you might discover something way wrong? keep us posted.
    it's detective work!
