Default B2600 Clutch Pedal Sticking Problem

Hi Folks.
I have a '92 Bravo B2600 EFI 4x4 2 door.
The clutch pedal sticks to the floor and it is hard to "ride the clutch". I have had to change the slave cylinder and this has started after changing that. Is it the master cylinder? There is no air in the line.
Thanks.

Hmm, never heard of a Bravo model. Are you outside the US? Did you have to remove the transmission to replace the slave? If it is the same as a US model then the slave cylinder is outside of the trans and it likely needs a master cylinder. If it is actually a Ford then it gets tricky to bleed,real tricky.

G'Day Hixx,
In Aussie. The slave is on the outside. I noticed the line from the master curves up and over in front of the fire wall. Must still have air in the line then if they are tricky to bleed.
Any tips on bleeding? Maybe first bleed from the point where the steel line meets the flexible.
Yeah, right hand drive, so the lines are on the right side of the car.
Cheers.

Those are generally easy to bleed. If i am alone i use an old oil can with a pump trigger. I open the bleeder up and install the hose/pump and back bleed it. (push the fluid up from the slave to the master) Most likely you need a master cylinder though. Over time the system gets contaminated with rubber/rust/trash and the trash becomes the seal. When you bled it you flushed all that out and the seal inside the master cylinder is bypassing the fluid.

Most likely; happened to my B2200 about a dozen years ago. I needed it running, I replaced both master and slave. And I bench-bled the master first.

Hi Folks,
Thanks for the advise. The new master cylinder fixed the problem.
Finally got around to installing it.

As for bleeding. I "cracked" the fitting on the master and pumped until I saw fluid dripping. Then "cracked" the fitting just after the first flexible tubing clipped to the fire wall and pumped until I say it dripping. Easy as.

Cheers.
