I have installed a remote bleeder on the slave. I have pumped a ton of fluid through the system. The clutch is not fully disengaging, clashing gears, will not go into 1/Rev. with the motor running. Shifts fine without the motor running. There is a slight squeak in the clutch peddle, rubber inside the cylinder. I suspect the master cylinder is bad but I need some advice?

BTW - I am new to the forum, well really to all forums. Should I post a new thread to get help?
Since this isn't exactly related to the original topic and you have some unique part combo, it may be best to start a new thread.

McLeod is a brand, so you may want to specify what type of clutch you have from them. The LS7 clutch is intended for a single disk clutch. If you have a twin disk, that could be your issue, and bleeding or spacers would not take care of it either. You may also want to check with McLeod to see what they say.
