Clutch slave cylinder

Slave cylinderThe other day, putting my car into reverse, the gears clashed a bit. I figured it was time to flush the MC and SC. I did. I also pulled back the rubber protector from the SC and out came a splash of brake fluid. Mmmm.

I drove the car and all seemed good. Then again reverse clashed a bit. I flushed some more. No fluid in rubber this time. I also measured how much movement I was getting at the SC. I'm only getting a touch over 5/8".

My question is, how much movement should I be getting??

I have the PBS cable shifter, Wildwood SC, and unknown MC with some fancy aluminum pedals.

I did tighten the two bolts holding the shifter down to the floor in the cockpit. Shifting into reverse does take some effort. I though maybe there was some slop.

I was going to order a rebuild kit for the SC. It only has two O-rings doing all the work for crying out loud. Or should I shitcan it and get a better one?
