I absolutely cannot believe these guys that say they frequently bleed their clutch. After an hour, and after buying a different wrench & socket set, I managed to get the clutch bleed screw loose. Determined to never go through this again, I removed it to at least replace it with a speed bleeder (needed to remove it to get the right size), heard a bit of a clunk and can't find the bleeder. Looking at pics of the Tremec & bell, and trying to look around up there with a dental mirror - it looks like it can fall - and did fall - INTO the bell housing.
Is that possible> How hosed am I? Do I actually have to drop the transmission now - just because that freaking bleed screw is/was about impossible to get to!
Seriously - HELP!!!
And while I have your attention, is is reasonable to install the Monster Clutch 36" CTS-V Remote Bleeder without pulling the trans? Never want to go though THIS again...
Yep, Monster says you have to pull it, goes all the way into the slave. Are there any that just screw in where the bleeder was?
Not a good day so far...
