Well the ranger continues to fight me with the clutch. I bench bled a brand new master cylinder until it was solid. Put it in, hook up the pushrod and it's still solid. Connect the slave and gravity bleed it and don't see any air. Jump in and the pedal feels great, start it up and it won't go into gear. I put the transfer case in neutral and i can hear the tranny turning when it's in gear and the clutch is pushed in. I thought i ha it this time. Going to try vacuum bleeding from the slave this morning. Maybe it needs more fluid ran through it. Any other ideas?

Its all new parts right? If the pedal feels good but does not disengage the clutch that is odd. Are you sure it is the right slave cylinder. Mayne they gave you the wrong part?

Yes correct all new parts. The pedal has almost zero play. The slave looked identical to the one we took out.

It's driving guys! All I had to do was start it up in gear and let the clutch wear in a bit. The slave was bled correctly the whole time. Guess thats what comes with learning a new vehicle. I just need to fix a couple small things and clean her up and it'll be ready to hit the trails. Here's a few pics.

It is at 2pm. Second parking lot after you turn left at the fork. Near the playground.

I am not sure - depends on what time my wife is supposed to get home. I might make a short visit to say hello and show off the new driven livery!

Sucks I couldn't make it. I started looking into why the front hubs weren't engaging and that led to cleaning and repacking the bearings and I ran out of time. The rain probably would have stopped me anyway since the back corner glass is broken out. Maybe I'll make the next one.

I did not get out either - sorry guys. It was raining at my place and the wife came home so we spent the rest of the day together.

Has there been any thoughts of another TECH MEET? Anyone got some work they need to do and want some help with it? The shop is available and the temps are getting more tolerable - consider for September.

I showed up around 2:10 or so and sat around for about 30 minutes until John showed up. Just us two this time but still had fun. Ended up sitting around until 5 just hanging out. Guess the rain scared everyone else off lol. A tech meet would be pretty sweet. I know I want to get my overhead console installed and John was interested in getting one done too.
