I just replaced my worn out clutch with a brand new clutch. The clutch grabs strong and does not slip at all, but the clutch disengagement happens only 1-2 inches from the floor board and in wide open throttle at higher RPMs it will not shift into the next gears.
Often, people replace their tired clutch with the latest /greatest clutch, but forget to upgrade the supporting pieces. Because the brand new clutch and flywheel that you just installed have MUCH more material than your old worn-out piece, it takes more pressure to completely disengage the clutch disc from the new flywheel. The first step in fixing this problem is to do the drill mod discussed before. If that does not cure your trouble then it means that your clutch requires much more fluid pressure in order to operate properly. Your stock master--even after the drill mod--can only push a very set amount of fluid. If this set amount is not enough to push the pressure plate then it is time to step up to an adjustable master cylinder. An adjustable master cylinder will allow you to increase the fluid pressure enough to operate your new clutch. It will also allow you to adjust exactly where in your pedal travel your clutch engages and disengages.
There is one company that attempts a more simplistic fix known as a slave shim. This effectively shortens the space that the fluid resides in, therefore putting a "preload" on your fluid pressure. I don?t like this fix for two reasons: 1-it is not adjustable, making it impossible to correct your pressure settings as your clutch pad and flywheel wears, which makes it necessary to replace both of them sooner than you would have to if you could adjust the correct amount of pressure; and 2-because it is not adjustable, it does not account for those whose master cylinder puts out a little more fluid than it was built to. For these people, they will notice that their clutch engages and disengages in the very first 1-2 inches of clutch pedal travel. If this is the case, there is a very good chance that
your clutch is never fully engaging, which will result in a broken or worn out clutch disk very early in the new clutch?s life, and a very displeased customer who thinks this part was junk.
