Ok, so I rebuilt the clutch master and slave today. There was a lot of trash hiding behind the slave cylinder, bout a quarter teaspoon of dirt, so it needed to be done but it didn't solve my problem. going to pull the clutch cover off again and measure the friction and separator plates separately and see where the hell i went wrong. Anyways i threw on one of the plastics and took some pics with the new powder coat on the wheels. wish i could have afforded re-chrome but i'm really happy with the new look.
