    Maybe Heavy is right, and your pressure plate is still on?

    Pressure plate is not on it looks just like the video you posted. I could only wish it had that much play in it. We could have gotten it off then with no problems. had a 3 ft bar on it trying to move that rotten boat anchor wouldn't budge a bit. Finally got tired of jacking with it as the fiance goes back to work on Sunday morning so last resort he cut it off. Installation of new clutch is proceeding forward. Thank goodness I know he's tired of jacking with this car now.....

    Wow, that sounds like it was welded in place.

    Was it rusted together?

    Havent been outside to look at it yet. He just came in and said it slid down the jack a bit and broke an ear off. F*&%ing fantastic. Starting to think buying this car was not a good idea. No welders around until tuesday so looks like im without a car for another week.

    Tab is fixed. Pressure line out of slave is considerably longer than stock. Where'd you put all the excess at? If we can get this part figured out we can bleed it tonight hopefully. Theline has a tab to bolt it somewhere. Nothing in the instructions as to how to route all the extra line and dont want to pinch anything up.

    Thanks. He wasnt sure what to do with all the excess since everything coming off of this slave is considerably longer than the stock unit that came off. Even the metal line is quite a bit longer and trying not to crush or kink it.

    Re: Monster Clutch Install

    I swapped out my rides and I am back in the V.

    I hate this clutch and it is getting replaced ASAP.

    It is impossible for me to slip enough to get a smooth launch and stopped on a hill is the pits.

    The "chatter" literally shakes the transmission fluid out of the vent so I end up with a nice red spot on my garage floor (it runs out of the drip pan there is that much).

    I have all the parts for a Katech replacement.

    Now I need to go get another bottle of Aleve........

    Sorry to hear. My level 2 took 1500-2000 miles to be chatter free. Glad I didn't do the level 3.

    You mean 2 years of driving, lol.

    Mr. Vette is an 03 Z06 with 8500 mi and the V has about 25k.

    I put about 3k on the V clutch (a little over a year of driving) and after driving the Z for the last 6 months I realize that the Monster works, just not for me.

    Damn. My 1500-200 were mostly in traffic and in town. It only took 2 months for me. I see how those who drive very little could be annoyed by the break in period.
