Spec SS Clutch install issue

Recommended Posts

I have two issues I am trying to sort out with the Spec SS clutch install. Everything has been going great and I have about 1000 miles on the install now. Ninety percent of the time the car drives great, and clutch engagement is perfect. However, I still run into the occasional two issues.


1) When letting the pedal out, it will sometimes "hiccup" right before I reach the top. Engagement still seems to be fine, but the pedal will hiccup or jump for just a second.


2) First will stick every once in a while, I will notice it in stop and go traffic, or usually when sliding into my garage when coming home.


I have checked the shifter for binding and everything looks clear. I have bled the clutch at least 15 times. I am out of ideas on this one. Could it be an issue with the master cylinder or stubborn air bubble? I don't see any indication of shimming being required with this cars. So other than air or a faulty cylinder I am at a loss. Any ideas or advice would be appreciated.

The Spec clutches have had lots of issues apparently on the GT's, using OEM slave cylinders. I'd look into an adjustable slave cylinder from Ram or McLeod.



I haven't heard anything good about the adjustable slaves on the GT500s. Lose lose situation?
