Re: Think I found it - Oil leak at push rod
I've got the stainless springs in the clutch too - I barely think I could compress teh spring a millimeter with my bare hands, so I can imagine there's a lot of force at play.
It's such a simple explanation - but I definetly had a "Well duh" moment there. At first the notion that that large seal with all its bolts would fail seemed a bit out there. But after this and thinking about how many thousand times that area has to take the strain of the slave pulling on it, it's kind of a wonder that it held up for 8 years.
yeah a couple 8mm back there probably would have been a good design revision... a few years back oh well.
