okay, so i did a spec stage 3+ clutch saturday night. we got everything back together and the clutch wouldnt move. i noticed a little fluid leaking from the slave so i replaced it with another. bled the system and when i went to push in the clutch it bent the rod going from the pedal to the master(90 degree angle). so now i have the new master and about to put it on, but i was wondering what would cause this? maybe the clutch fork out of place? has anyone had this problem or know what it could be?
thanks, mike.

The fact that you bent a Master rod is a little strange. The only thing that comes to mind as a cause for both of these issues is a Master that is no longer passing fluid down-stream through the hydraulic assembly. A new Master may very well be the solution to you problem.

Of course, checking your connections and lines, as discussed above, is worth doing too. Make sure they are in good shape and let me know what you find.
